thanks great.

i'm using Ubuntu 10.4 LTS for this purpose - the interactive shell doesn't seem 
to be in posix mode, but its possible that the configure script uses /bin/sh 
which should yield a posix mode bash.

i've can confirm that building and running a GUI helloworld with embedded 
gnustep works fine now (also using standalone instead of ./standalone) - many 

while i've got your attention i've got a few very quick questions ;)

i believe for a standalone configuration its unwanted to create a visible 
directory in the users home folder especially when the config file therein is 
invisible anyway:


but despite these changes a GNUstep folder is still created in the $home 
folder, for these files:

total 16
drwxr-xr-x 2 notroot notroot 4096 2011-10-17 05:08 .
drwxr-x--- 3 notroot notroot 4096 2011-10-17 05:08 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 notroot notroot   55 2011-10-17 05:08 .GNUstepAppList
-rw-r--r-- 1 notroot notroot  378 2011-10-17 05:08 .GNUstepServices

how can i turn that off?

second thing, i want the deployed app to have changed defaults for GSTheme and 
NSMenuInterfaceStyle, but stuffing the appropriate config plist into 
doesn't seem to get picked up. where shall i put it?

thanks, julian
