pioneers-server-gtk — graphical game server for Pioneers
DescriptionThis manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-gtk command.
Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. This program provides a GUI-configurable stand-alone server which you connect to from pioneers itself.
OptionsPioneers accepts the standard GTK+ commandline options.
EnvironmentThe default settings of the server can be influenced with the following three environment variables:
- The hostname of the metaserver when no metaserver is specified in the user interface. (The settings file takes precedence)
- The hostname of the server. If it is not set, the hostname is determined by hostname(1). (The settings file takes precedence)
The path to the game definition files.
