     I am likely missing this info from the PSPP documentation, but I can't

     dialog boxes to show variable names, as opposed to variable labels. In
     SPSS this is done by Edit > Options > Display/show variable names. Is
     there a way to do this with PSPP, perhaps via syntax? Many of my Stats
     students have started using PSPP this semester to avoid rental costs of
     SPSS and I didn't notice that the GUI defaulted to variable labels and
     not names (I always run syntax in PSPP). They're having a hard time
     finding the variables they need, especially in large datasets.

I don't think there is any way to change this globally.  But if you right 
click on the dialog box, and on the popup-menu unselect the checkbox 
"Prefer value labels",  then you will get names through-out that dialog

I hope this helps.
