gBAR
Student IT support moved to the DTU Library. Latex support remains in 125D/308

Located in your home directory, the file .gbarrc is a config file for various G-Bar related things. It can be edited with any text editor.

The file has a simple format that consists of lines, where each line identifies a setting:

<identifier>=<value>

Empty lines and lines starting with # are ignored (i.e. comments). An example:

# Disable autolock of desktop
NO_LOCK=1
# Set default windows size for Windows Desktop
WIN_RESOLUTION=1024x768

As seen in the example above, the file can be interpreted with Bash.

Below is an example of a setting that you can configure with .gbarrc.

Set default windows size for Windows Desktop

When starting a Windows program from the Menu => Microsoft, it is possible to select a window size for the program. It is also possible to set a default window size by adding this setting to your .gbarrc:

WIN_RESOLUTION=<width>x<height>

The resolution can also be set to a non standard resolution, e.g.:

WIN_RESOLUTION=1000x800
