NAME

       update-gconf-defaults - generate GConf defaults shipped in Debian packages

SYNOPSIS

       update-gconf-defaults [options]

DESCRIPTION

       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/frob_number     42
       /apps/myprogram/do_foo          true
       /apps/myprogram/priority        1.25
       /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.

OPTIONS

       --source source_dir
              Specify an alternate source directory where to find the defaults.

       --destination destination_dir
              Specify an alternate destination directory where to build the resulting GConf tree.

       --mandatory
              Sets source and destination directories appropriate for the mandatory values.

FILES

       /usr/share/gconf/defaults/
              The directory from which defaults files are read.

       /usr/share/gconf/mandatory/
              The directory from which defaults files for mandatory settings are read.

       /var/lib/gconf/debian.defaults
              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.

       /var/lib/gconf/debian.mandatory
              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.
