Thank you for your excellent answer. But It looks like it isn't working for
me. My currenr makefile is now:

but when i install it I cannot find the resources anywhere in the GNUstep
directory. Only the binary in the subdirectory tools.

Thanks Martin.

It works for me.  The tool binary is installed into


and the tool's resource bundle is installed into


Try 'make install messages=yes' to see where it is being installed. Is it being installed at all ?

If it's being installed as in my case, while the location might seem difficult to find at runtime, it's actually very easy to find - just call [NSBundle mainBundle] inside your tool.

Another point I'm thinking about is the wrong category I use. A game isn't a tool. It's an application. But the application project type links to the gui libs. Is there a way to get rid of this dependency? And if not, is there an automated way to install a new project type file. for example sdlgame.make
with the sdl wrapper?

Yes, you could use xxx_NEEDS_GUI = NO. :-)

You could produce an sdlgame.make, but it's probably more work than it's worth.
