NAME
dconf - Simple tool for manipulating a dconf database SYNOPSIS
dconf read KEY dconf list DIR dconf write KEY VALUE dconf reset [-f] PATH dconf update dconf watch PATH dconf dump DIR dconf load DIR dconf help [COMMAND] DESCRIPTION
The dconf program can perform various operations on a dconf database, such as reading or writing individual values or entire directories. This tool operates directly on the dconf database and does not read gsettings schema information. Therefore, it cannot perform type and consistency checks on values. The gsettings(1) utility is an alternative if such checks are needed. The DIR arguments must be directory paths (starting and ending with '/'), the KEY arguments must be key paths (starting, but not ending with '/') and the PATH arguments can be either directory or key paths. VALUE arguments must be in GVariant format, so e.g. a string must include explicit quotes: "'foo'". This format is also used when printing out values. COMMANDS
read Read the value of a key. list List the sub-keys and sub-directories of a directory. write Write a new value to a key. reset Reset a key or an entire directory. For directories, -f must be specified. update Update the system dconf databases. watch Watch a key or directory for changes. dump Dump an entire subpath to stdout. The output is in a keyfile-like format, with values in GVariant syntax. load Populate a subpath from stdin. The expected format is the same as produced by dump. help Display help and exit. If COMMAND is given, display help for this command. SEE ALSO

NAME
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
