gsettings - GSettings configuration tool SYNOPSIS
gsettings get SCHEMA [:PATH] KEY gsettings monitor SCHEMA [:PATH] [KEY] gsettings writable SCHEMA [:PATH] KEY gsettings range SCHEMA [:PATH] KEY gsettings set SCHEMA [:PATH] KEY VALUE gsettings reset SCHEMA [:PATH] KEY gsettings reset-recursively SCHEMA [:PATH] gsettings list-schemas gsettings list-relocatable-schemas gsettings list-keys SCHEMA [:PATH] gsettings list-children SCHEMA [:PATH] gsettings list-recursively [SCHEMA [:PATH]] gsettings help [COMMAND] DESCRIPTION
gsettings offers a simple commandline interface to GSettings. It lets you get, set or monitor an individual key for changes. The SCHEMA and KEY arguments are required for most commands to specify the schema id and the name of the key to operate on. The schema id may optionally have a :PATH suffix. Specifying the path is only needed if the schema does not have a fixed path. When setting a key, you also need specify a VALUE The format for the value is that of a serialized GVariant, so e.g. a string must include explicit quotes: "'foo'". This format is also used when printing out values. COMMANDS
get Gets the value of KEY. The value is printed out as a serialised GVariant. monitor Monitors KEY for changes and prints the changed values. If no KEY is specified, all keys in the schema are monitored. Monitoring will continue until the process is terminated. writable Finds out whether KEY is writable. range Queries the range of valid values for KEY. set Sets the value of KEY to VALUE. The value is specified as a serialised GVariant. reset Resets KEY to its default value. reset-recursively Reset all keys under the given SCHEMA. list-schemas Lists the installed, non-relocatable schemas. See list-relocatable-schemas if you are interested in relocatable schemas. list-relocatable-schemas Lists the installed, relocatable schemas. See list-schemas if you are interested in non-relocatable schemas. list-keys Lists the keys in SCHEMA. list-children Lists the children of SCHEMA. list-recursively Lists keys and values, recursively. If no SCHEMA is given, list keys in all schemas. help Prints help and exits. GIO

synce-registry - read or modify the registry on a PDA SYNOPSIS
synce-registry manipulates the registry on a device connected through SynCE. It can read and write values, add new keys and values, and list the values of a key. Forward slashes ('/') in key names specified on the command line are converted to backward slashes (''). This tool must be run as the same user as the dccmd daemon. OPTIONS
-d LEVEL Set debug log level: 0 - No logging (default) 1 - Errors only 2 - Errors and warnings 3 - Everything -p DEVNAME Use the device with the given name, instead of the default. -h Display help message. [-r] PARENTKEY KEY VALUE Read a value. This is the default. -w [-t TYPE] PARENTKEY KEY VALUE NEWVALUE Write a value. If TYPE is supplied, that type of value will be written; otherwise a string. The following options are valid for TYPE: sz - String dword - Double-word (4 bytes) dword_bige - Double word (4 bytes), big-endian expand_sz - String with path expansion multi_sz - Multiple strings (not supported) binary - Binary data (not supported) -l PARENTKEY KEY List the names of values and subkeys in the given KEY. -n PARENTKEY KEY Create a new key. -x PARENTKEY KEY VALUE Delete the given VALUE from the given KEY. (not implemented) -X PARENTKEY KEY Delete the given KEY. (not implemented) PARENTKEY The top-level key (sometimes called the hive). The only valid options are HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT (abbreviated HKCR), HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU), HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM), and HKEY_USERS (HKU). KEY The key to operate on. A key can contain zero or more values and subkeys. VALUE The value to operate on. NEWVALUE The new value to set VALUE to in a write operation. AUTHOR
