This has two important caveats. This also illustrates what I meant by key-value pair above. When a key’s value has not been set by the user, GConf will fall back to the factory default in the key’s schema. Use gconftool –break-key to verify that your application is robust.

Each configuration source has a backend that knows how to read it – for now, this is always the gconf-efitor backend, which stores data in XML files. These files are not used by GConf directly. This will make GConf internals more efficient, and will also allow you to listen for changes with finer granularity.

A schema is a bundle of metainformation describing a configuration setting. What was your question again?

GConf configuration system

You can probably live with that. This has two important caveats. Send USR1 a second time to toggle huge verbosity back off. For now you should really use the version in the GConf tarball instead, it has some important updates. Sign up gconf-editof log in Sign up using Google.


Debian — Details of package gconf-editor in stretch

The article at http: This will give copious debug output about what that client is doing. If the kernel crashes or the power cord gets pulled on an NFS client machine, theoretically when you reboot the client machine it will notify the NFS server that it has rebooted and all previously-held locks should be released.

GConf should really be enhanced in the future to exit immediately when all apps using it have exited. Application developers create files called schema filestraditionally ending in the.

gconf-editor(1): editor for GConf config system – Linux man page

Frequently, the features are targeted at “power users,” and the developer simply doesn’t want to clutter up the normal preference gconf-efitor. These are in a nice human-readable format. Sign up using Facebook.

You can perform a variety of operations with gconftool Pages using Infobox software with unknown parameters All stub articles.

You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. The reason why you need to be forward compatible is that many times users share the same home directory for many different computers running different OS versions or even different operating systems entirely.

There’s an article about GConf at http: On Red Hat Linux, this means the “nfslock” service must be running. If the schema files weren’t installed, then creating a new configuration source would require reinstalling all applications. If you rename a config key due to a change in possible values, you could have your app copy the old key to the new key on startup, for the case where the new key is unset.


Let’s look at the example from above. If you can’t figure out what’s going on, mail gconf-list gnome. While editing Gconf keys may potentially cause minor issues with specific programs, it should never lead to system wide issues such as rendering your system unbootable.

The first lock is to ensure that only one gconfd is running. Red Hat Linux has this level of logging turned off by default, other systems have it enabled. Other gconf tools have also appeared, such as Gconfpref by MandrakeSoft.

Views Read Edit View history. Another important motivation for GConf is that it’s “process transparent. Red Hat Linux 8. The last source is where schemas are usually stored – see the next section.

Which means you may not use GConf as an IPC mechanism or when it’s required to be able to store a piece of data.
