NAME

glib-compile-schemas - GSettings schema compiler

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

glib-compile-schemas [OPTION...] {DIRECTORY}

DESCRIPTION

glib-compile-schemas compiles all the GSettings XML schema files in DIRECTORY into a binary file with the name gschemas.compiled that can be used by GSettings. The XML schema files must have the filename extension .gschema.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file format, see the GSettings documentation.

At runtime, GSettings looks for schemas in the glib-2.0/schemas subdirectories of all directories specified in the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable. The usual location to install schema files is /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas.

In addition to schema files, glib-compile-schemas reads vendor override files, which are key files that can override default values for keys in the schemas. The group names in the key files are the schema id, and the values are written in serialized GVariant form. Vendor override files must have the filename extension .gschema.override.

By convention, vendor override files begin with nn_ where nn is a number from 00 to 99. Higher numbered files have higher priority (eg: if the same override is made in a file numbered 10 and then again in a file numbered 20, the override from 20 will take precedence).

OPTIONS

-h, --help

Print help and exit

--targetdir=TARGET

Store gschemas.compiled in the TARGET directory instead of DIRECTORY.

--strict

Abort on any errors in schemas. Without this option, faulty schema files are simply omitted from the resulting compiled schema.

--dry-run

Dont write gschemas.compiled. This option can be used to check .gschema.xml sources for errors.

--allow-any-name

Do not enforce restrictions on key names. Note that this option is purely to facility the transition from GConf, and will be removed at some time in the future.
