gworkspace for Debian
---------------------

Key Bindings:

  GWorkspace uses key bindings that are configured by GNUstep.  In
  order to get the best use of GWorkspace it is highly recommended
  that the keys are configured correctly.

  There are two ways to configure the keys.  The debian package
  'preferences' offers a graphical configuration for key-bindings as
  well as other GNUstep defaults.  The keys can also be configured
  using the command line in a simple to use way.

  GNUstep needs 3 keys to be configured: CONTROL, COMMAND and
  ALTERNATE.  Each of these can have two keys assigned to generate
  these events.

  DEFAULTS

  The default set-up is:

     * GSFirstControlKey	Control_L
     * GSSecondControlKey	Control_R
     * GSFirstCommandKey	Alt_L
     * GSSecondCommandKey	NoSymbol
     * GSFirstAlternateKey	Alt_R (or Mode_switch if there is no Alt_R)
     * GSSecondAlternateKey	NoSymbol

  Some keyboards may not have Alt_R defined, in which case you will
  not have a working ALTERNATE key by default.  Instead it might be
  configured as ISO_Level3_Shift.  If so, you should redefine your
  GSFirstAlternateKey to ISO_Level3_Shift.  ALTERNATE is used by
  GWorkspace for copying files.  No modifier key will move a file, and
  CONTROL will link a file. 

  Preferences provides a choice of different modifier keys.  Simply
  select whatever key you like from the drop down lists.  If you
  don't know which key generates which modifier, you can use 'xev'
  from xbase-clients to find out.

  Using the command line to fix up a missing ALTERNATE key (this
  should all be on one line):

  defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSFirstAlternateKey ISO_Level3_Shift
  
  Use the same method to set other GS keys.

  VIEWING 

  If you want to see your current defaults you could use:

  defaults read 
  
  or to trim the output:
  
  defaults read | egrep 'GS.*Key'  

  The preferences gui shows the default keys when the keys section is
  first selected (it's the icon of a key with the letter G in the
  corner).

  DELETING

  You can delete a user supplied key-binding that reverts the package
  bask to the default. E.g. 

  defaults delete GSFirstAlternateKey
