NAME

       libguestfs-tools.conf - configuration file for guestfish, guestmount, virt-rescue

SYNOPSIS

        /etc/libguestfs-tools.conf

        $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/libguestfs/libguestfs-tools.conf

        $HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc

        $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/libguestfs/libguestfs-tools.conf

DESCRIPTION

       libguestfs-tools.conf (or $HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc) changes the defaults for the
       following programs only:

       ·   guestfish(1)

       ·   guestmount(1)

       ·   virt-rescue(1)

       There is currently only one setting which is controlled by this file.  Adding (or
       uncommenting):

        read_only = true;

       changes these programs so they act as if the --ro flag was given on the command line.  You
       can use this to make the programs safe against accidental modification of a live guest
       (users would have to explicitly add the --rw flag to modify guests).  This is not the
       default because it is not backwards compatible.  See also "OPENING DISKS FOR READ AND
       WRITE" in guestfish(1).

       Note that the semicolon is required.

       This file is parsed by the libconfig library.  For more information about the format, see:
       http://www.hyperrealm.com/libconfig/libconfig_manual.html

FILE LOCATION

       The order of the configuration files being read is, by importance:

       ·   $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/libguestfs/libguestfs-tools.conf ($XDG_CONFIG_HOME is $HOME/.config
           if not set).

       ·   $HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc

       ·   $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/libguestfs/libguestfs-tools.conf (where $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS means any of
           the directories in that environment variable, or just /etc/xdg if not set)

       ·   /etc/libguestfs-tools.conf

       This means local users can override the system configuration by copying the configuration
       file (or creating it anew) into $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/libguestfs/libguestfs-tools.conf.

       /etc/libguestfs-tools.conf and $HOME/.libguestfs-tools.rc are the old non-XDG paths which
       are read for compatibility.
