NAME

       gconf-editor - an editor for the GConf configuration system

SYNOPSIS

       gconf-editor

DESCRIPTION

       GConf-Editor  is  a  tool  used for editing the GConf configuration database.  It might be
       useful when the proper configuration utility for some software provides no way of changing
       some option.

USAGE

       The  main  window consists of a tree showing the GConf configuration database hierarchy, a
       list of the keys available, and documentation for the selected key.

       Key values can be changed by either changing them directly in the list, or right  clicking
       on  them  and selecting Edit key.  Changes take immediate effect in running programs.  New
       keys can be added by right clicking in the list and selecting New key.

       Bookmarks may be set for quick lookup of a key later.

NOTES

       This tool allows you to directly edit  your  configuration  database.   This  is  not  the
       recommended way of setting desktop preferences.  Use this tool at your own risk.
