DESCRIPTION
       Each preference in the GConf repository is expressed as a key-value pair. A GConf  prefer-
       ence  key is an element in the GConf repository that corresponds to an application prefer-
       ence.  Preference keys typically have simple values such as strings, integers, or lists of
       strings	and  integers.	The  default key-value pairs are installed on the system, and are
       known as schemas. gconftool-2 is the command-line interface tool that enables you  to  set
       the values of keys, display the values of keys, and install schemas from schema definition
       files when you install an application. The GConf preference keys are stored and managed by
       the  GConf  daemon  (gconfd-2).	These keys are cached in memory, and saved to disk in XML
       format when appropriate.

OPTIONS
       -s, --set
	      Set a key to a value and sync. Use with --type.

       -g, --get
	      Print the value of a key to standard output.

       -u, --unset
	      Unset the keys on the command line.

       --recursive-unset
	      Recursively unset all keys at or below the key/directory names on the command line.

       -a, --all-entries
	      Print all key/value pairs in a directory.

       --all-dirs
	      Print all subdirectories in a directory.

       -R, --recursive-list
	      Print all subdirectories and entries under a dir, recursively.

       --dir-exists=STRING
	      Return 0 if the directory exists, 2 if it does not.

       -t, --type=int|bool|float|string|list|pair
	      Specify the type of the value being  set,  or  the  type	of  the  value	a  schema
	      describes. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

       --list-type=int|bool|float|string
	      Specify  the  type  of  the list value being set, or the type of the value a schema
	      describes. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

       --car-type=int|bool|float|string
	      Specify the type of the car pair value being set, or the type of the value a schema
	      describes. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

       --cdr-type=int|bool|float|string
	      Specify the type of the cdr pair value being set, or the type of the value a schema
	      describes. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

       --short-desc=DESCRIPTION
	      Specify a short half-line description to go in a schema.

       --long-desc=DESCRIPTION
	      Specify a several-line description to go in a schema.

       --owner=OWNER
	      Specify the owner of a schema.

       --install-schema-file=FILENAME
	      Specify a schema file to be installed

       --config-source=SOURCE
	      Specify a configuration source to use rather than the default path

       --direct
	      Access the config database directly, bypassing server. Requires that gconfd is  not
	      running.

       --set-schema
	      Set a schema and sync. Use with --short-desc, --long-desc, --owner, and --type.

       --makefile-install-rule
	      Properly	installs  schema  files on the command line into the database. GCONF_CON-
	      FIG_SOURCE environment variable should be set to a non-default config source or set
	      to the empty string to use the default.

       --break-key
	      Torture-test an application by setting and unsetting a bunch of values of different
	      types for keys on the command line.

       --break-directory
	      Torture-test an application by setting and unsetting a bunch  of	keys  inside  the

       --short-docs
	      Get the short doc string for a key

       --long-docs

       --get-schema-name
	      Get the name of the schema applied to this key

       --apply-schema
	      Specify the schema name followed by the key to apply the schema name to

       --unapply-schema
	      Remove any schema name applied to the given keys

       --get-default-source
	      Get the name of the default source.

       --shutdown
	      Shut down gconfd. Don't use this option without good reason.

       -p, --ping
	      Return 0 if gconfd is running, 2 if not.

       --spawn
	      Launch the config server (gconfd). (Normally happens automatically when needed.)
