NAME

gcin-tools - configuration tools of gcin

SYNOPSIS

gcin-tools

DESCRIPTION

gcin-tools is the default configuration tool of gcin. Another configuring method is writing conffiles in $HOME/.gcin/config. See CONFFILES section for further information.

CONFFILES

Those conffiles below will be created automatically by gcin-tools, except gcin-bell-volume and gcin-sound-play-overlap.
If you want to write conffiles by yourself, please make sure you have the config directory:

mkdir -p $HOME/.gcin/config
After that, you may try:

echo zo > $HOME/.gcin/config/phonetic-keyboard
Thus you make a phonetic-keyboard file with its content zo, which means you select the standard style with 1234 selection method.
All available conffiles are listed, and default options are showed bold.
