Gnome System Tools (GST), previously known as Ximian Setup Tools and Helix Setup Tools, is a set of configuration programs for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems. The tools consist of a set of 'backends' (scripts written in Perl) which manipulate the system's configuration files, and generate XML descriptions of the current state, and frontends, generally written in C, which are GUIs for the GNOME desktop environment.
When Helix Code changed its name to Ximian, the name of the project was changed to Ximian Setup Tools. A while later, Ximian decided to no longer dedicate resources to the project, and it was moved to the GNOME CVS server, where Carlos Garnacho Parro later took up maintainership.
The Gnome System Tools currently contains frontend tools for these configurations:
- User Account Management
- Runlevel Configuration
- Date and Time Changes
- Disk Configuration (deprecated)
- Network configuration
