Every user needs to have his own instance of gdnc running. While gdnc will be started automatically as soon as it is needed, it is recommended to start gdnc in a personal login script like ~/.bashrc or ~/.cshrc. Alternatively (if you have no command-line tools which use distributed notifications) you can launch gdnc when your windowing system or the window manager is started. For example, on systems with X11 you can launch gdnc from your .xinitrc script or alternatively - if you are running Window Maker - put it in Window Maker's autostart script. See the GNUstep Build Guide for a sample startup script.
