1. NAME

gtk-options - Standard Command Line Options for GTK+ Programs

2. SYNOPSIS

"program " [ "standard options" "] [" "specific options" "] " arguments

3. DESCRIPTION

This manual page describes the command line options, which are common to all GTK+ based applications.

4. OPTIONS

4.1. GTK+ OPTIONS

  • --gtk-module=MODULE
        Load an additional Gtk module.
  • --gtk-debug=FLAGS
        A colon separated list of GTK+ debugging flags to set. Valid flags are objects , misc , signals , dnd , and plugsocket . The special value all enables all flags.
  • --gtk-no-debug=FLAGS
        GTK+ debugging flags to unset. Use this options to override the GTK_DEBUG environment variable.
  • --g-fatal-warnings
        Make all warnings fatal.

4.2. GDK OPTIONS

  • --display=DISPLAY
        Set the X display to use. Use this option to override the DISPLAY environment variable.
  • --screen=SCREEN
        X screen to use. Use this options to override the screen part of the DISPLAY environment variable (see the DISPLAY NAMES section of the X (7x) manual page).
  • --sync
        Make X calls synchronous. This slows down the program considerably, but may be useful for debugging purposes.
  • --no-xshm
        Do not use the X server\'s XSHM shared memory extension. This slows down the program.
  • --name=NAME
        Program name as used by the window manager.
  • --class=CLASS
        Program class as used by the window manager. --gxid_host=HOST --gxid_port=PORT --xim-preedit
  • --xim-status
        Control the X input method.
  • --gdk-debug=FLAGS
        A colon-separated list of GDK debugging flags to set. This only works if your GDK library was compile with debugging support. Valid flags are events , misc , dnd , color-context , and xim . The special value all enables all valid flags.
  • --gdk-no-debug=FLAGS
        A colon-separated list of GDK debugging flags to unset. Use this options to override the GDK_DEBUG environment variable.

R X (7x), the GTK+ documentation, and the GDK documentation.

For most GTK+ programs there will be additional command line options, which are specific to the program. These will be explained in the application\'s documentation.
