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.
