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.
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.
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.
Read the value of a key.
List the sub-keys and sub-directories of a directory.
Write a new value to a key.
Reset a key or an entire directory. For directories, -f
must be specified.
Update the system dconf databases.
Watch a key or directory for changes.
Dump an entire subpath to stdout. The output is in a keyfile-like
format, with values in GVariant syntax.
Populate a subpath from stdin. The expected format is the same as
produced by dump.
Display help and exit. If COMMAND is given, display help
for this command.
