update-gconf-defaults - generate GConf defaults shipped in Debian packages
This manual page documents briefly the update-gconf-defaults
is responsible for generating defaults used by
GConf from the files found in /usr/share/gconf/defaults
The syntax of files in this directory consists in lines containing the key name,
some white space, and the key value, which can be an integer, a boolean, a
float, a string or a list of strings. Example:
/apps/myprogram/name "Gotcha !"
/apps/myprogram/names [Ha ha!,Let's keep serious,Ho ho!]
Files are processed in alphabetical order. Files processed later take precedence
over the previous ones if they include the same defaults. Thus, it is
recommended to name them NN
2-digit number and package
the package name. It is recommended to set
as 10 for packages in the Debian archive, 20 for derived
distributions, 50 for CDD distributions, and 90 for site-specific packages.
- --source source_dir
- Specify an alternate source directory where to find the
- --destination destination_dir
- Specify an alternate destination directory where to build
the resulting GConf tree.
- Sets source and destination directories appropriate for the
- The directory from which defaults files are read.
- The directory from which defaults files for mandatory
settings are read.
- The directory where the GConf tree for default settings is
generated. It is read by GConf with the default Debian configuration, and
it takes precedence over upstream defaults.
- The directory where the GConf tree for mandatory settings
is generated. It is read by GConf with the default Debian configuration,
and it takes precedence over user settings.
