All of the following dependencies can either be found on GNOME's official download site or in Ximian GNOME. Red Hat users should try FreshRPMS.

GNUstep Wrapper

Contributed by Thomas Cherryhomes:

The Gabber GNUstep wrapper allows for GNUstep compliant Workspace managers (such as to properly launch Gabber. This allows Gabber to be launched from the file viewers, from any shelf (including desktop), and the Fiend dock extender.

Patches for other OpenStep compliant systems (Mac OSX running XDarwin, for example) are welcome! :-)
