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

monitor

range
