NAME

       gsettings-data-convert - GConf to GSettings data migration

SYNOPSIS

       gsettings-data-convert [option...]

DESCRIPTION

       gsettings-data-convert reads values out of the users GConf database and stores them in
       GSettings.

       The information about the mapping from GConf keys to GSettings keys is taken from files in
       /usr/share/GConf/gsettings. Each file in that directory is read as a key file, with
       sections for each GSettings schema that is being converted. The entries in each section
       map GSettings keys to paths in the GConf database. Currently, gsettings-data-convert
       supports all basic GConf types as well as lists of strings and lists of integers.

       A simple example might look like this:

           [org.gnome.fonts]
           antialiasing = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/antialiasing
           dpi = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi
           hinting = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/hinting
           rgba_order = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/rgba_order

       If the GSettings schema does not have a fixed path, you must specify the path in the group
       name, separated by a colon character:

           [org.gnome.fonts:/desktop/gnome/font-rendering/]

       gsettings-data-convert keeps a list of the key files it has already converted, so it is
       safe to run it repeatedly to handle newly appeared key files. The expected use of this
       utility is to make each application install a key file for the GConf keys that it wants to
       be migrated, and run gsettings-data-convert every time a user logs in.
