Section: Maintenance Commands (8)
Updated: 2 Feb 2009
This manual page documents briefly the update-gconf-defaults command.
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_package with NN being a 2-digit number and package the package name. It is recommended to set NN as 10 for packages in the Debian archive, 20 for derived distributions, 50 for CDD distributions, and 90 for site-specific packages.
