Resume Wikipedia de Dconf

dconf est un logiciel employé par l’environnement graphique GNOME (à partir de sa version 3.0, en tant que successeur de GConf) pour stocker les données de configuration du bureau des applications dans une base de données.
Techniquement parlant, c’est un backend pour GSettings.
Les données sont stockées par GSettings dans un format binaire (là où GConf utilisait des fichiers XML).
Le logiciel dconf-editor est fourni pour permettre aux utilisateurs avertis de naviguer dans la base de données, de consulter la documentation des paramètres et de les modifier.
gconftool-2 peut aussi servir à cet effet.

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 compile OUTPUT KEYFILEDIR

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 on dconf directly, without using gsettings schema
information. Therefore, it cannot perform type and consistency checks
on values. The gsettings 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.

The OUTPUT argument must the location to write a (binary) dconf
database to and the KEYFILEDIR argument must be a .d directory
containing keyfiles.

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.

Note that dconf needs a D-Bus session bus connection to write changes
to the dconf database.

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.

compile
Compile a binary database from keyfiles.

The result is always in little-endian byte order, so it can be
safely installed in ‘share’. If it is used on a big endian machine,
dconf will automatically byteswap the contents on read.

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.

ENVIRONMENT
DCONF_PROFILE
This environment variable determines which dconf profile to use.
See dconf(7).
