gtg [options]


Getting Things GNOME! is a personal tasks and TODO-list items organizer for the GNOME desktop environment inspired by the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. GTG is designed with flexibility, adaptability, and ease of use in mind so it can be used as more than just GTD software.

GTG is intended to help you track everything you need to do and need to know, from small tasks to large projects.

GTG uses a very handy system for creating and editing tasks. The task editor can automatically recognize metadata such as tags and subtasks through the use of a very simple syntax.


-b, –boot-test
Boot-up only. Causes gtg to exit immediately after completing the first iteration of the main loop. Useful for boot performance testing work.
-c, –no-crash-handler
Disable crash handler. Causes the Apport automatic crash reporting utility to not be invoked when gtg crashes; instead it will print out a normal python backtrace. This can be useful for debugging crash bugs, or if the crash handler is misbehaving.
-d, –debug
Debug mode. Prints extra information to the console which may be useful for understanding and reporting bugs.
-h, –help
Prints some information about gtg’s usage and options.
-l, –local-liblarch
Use local liblarch. Look for the liblarch python library in ../liblarch. This is mainly useful for testing purpose.
-t TITLE, –title=TITLE
Set the window’s title to TITLE.
-v, –version
Prints version and exits.
