gsettings Man page

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.

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.

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

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

list-children
