Probably installed in /usr/local/lib/GNUstep/Libraries. Not sure.

cd /usr/local/lib/GNUstep
find . | grep libGormCore

Once found, take the **DIRECTORY** where it lives and do something similar to:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/GNUstep/Library:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}"

then start gorm.

I uninstalled it, worked fine.
But then I did make/sudo -E make install, all without a problem, but I can't find Gorm now :-(
All the other apps are at //usr/lib/GNUStep/Applications, but the new Gorm is not here :-(

You know how the Cocoa API NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains() or [NSFileManager URLsForDirectory:inDomains:] has the concept of a 'domain'? Things like NSLocalDomain or NSSystemDomain or NSUserDomain?

You know how filesystem hierarchy standard (FHS) specifies things like /usr vs /usr/local? Or how (a.k.a. xdo) specifies /usr/share vs /usr/local/share vs ~/.local/share?

See, it's really common that free software for UNIX-like systems -- when manually installed -- installs itself into "local" domain. In case of FHS, to which Debian -- and thus Debian packaging for GNUstep -- tries to adhere, local domain is in /usr/local. Programs installed and upgraded by the distribution's packaging system, however it works, get to live in the system domain in /usr. For example, /usr/bin vs /usr/local/bin.

Armed with this information, I would look for it in /usr/local/lib/GNUstep/Applications.

yes, here it is :-)
But when I try to start it:
/usr/local/lib/GNUstep/Applications/ error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
