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
