\fBGWorkspace\fP is the official GNUstep workspace manager. It is a clone of
NeXT's workspace manager.
\fBGWorkspace\fP is probably one of the most useful and usable workspace
managers available on any platform, owing to its well-designed interface
and the natural, consistent design that it inherits from the GNUstep framework.
The first time you run \fBGWorkspace\fP you must set some preferences:
\fBGWorkspace\fP needs a default editor to work. It can also be an app-wrapper.
To set your editor, open the preferences window and choose "Default Editor"
from the pop-up, then click on the "choose" button: from an open-panel you
will be able to browse your directories and choose the editor.
\fBGWorkspace\fP lets you open a terminal on the current directory (alt-t).
To set your preferred terminal (the default is "xterm"), choose "XTerminal"
from the pop-up.
Besides its standard Contents Inspectors, that is, App, Folder, Image,
Sound, Pdf-Ps, Rtf, text, Plist, Strings and Inspector viewers,
\fBGWorkspace\fP can dynamically load other modules which you can build
separately. It is sufficient to put them in a place where \fBGWorkspace\fP
looks for them, for example: ~/GNUstep/Library/GWorkspace.
In the same way you can add other viewers besides the standard Browser,
Icon and Small Icons viewers.
If you want to write a new inspector or a new viewer, take a look in the
\fBGWorkspace\fP speaks English, French, German, Italian and Romanian.
There are no options.
