The Gobby logo is created by Thomas Glatt <tom(at)> and heavily based on Gnomish-SVG (, thus GPL'ed.

I will include it, but i would also need a plugin to support gobby.

Sadly enough Gobby does not yet support URLs to automatically open a specified session. That's probably the thing a plugin should enable?

you can't pass an IP/PORT couple to gobby?

if so, the plugin could just start gobby, and the user could manually choose the right session.

Yes, if Gobby's available on the system. I'll file a new bug report if a new Gobby version which adds this feature enters Ubuntu (which will be in dapper+1).

Gobby now (as of 0.4.1) supports -j HOST:PORT, or --join=HOST:PORT, so this could be implemented and the icon be added.

I'll have a look at it asap.

I added support for gobby in svn rev 139

Sebastian, do you think we could include this?
