Documentation - Running

Version 2.6

gbiff is quite simple to use so it does not really need a full documentation.
I only give here some tips and informations about the graphical user interface (GUI).

If you experencied problems with window positionning when compiled without GNOME
support, try to play with WM_DECORATION_WIDTH and WM_DECORATION_HEIGHT
in gbiff.h. It seems there is a bug with some window manager and I cannot fix it properly with
the current version of GTK (1.2.x)
