       Each  preference  in  the  GConf repository is expressed as a key-value
       pair. A GConf preference key is an element in the GConf repository that
       corresponds  to  an  application preference.  Preference keys typically
       have simple values such as strings, integers, or lists of  strings  and
       integers.  The default key-value pairs are installed on the system, and
       are known as schemas. gconftool-2 is the  command-line  interface  tool
       that enables you to set the values of keys, display the values of keys,
       and install schemas from schema definition files when  you  install  an
       application.  The  GConf  preference keys are stored and managed by the
       GConf daemon (gconfd-2).  These keys are cached in memory, and saved to
       disk in XML format when appropriate.

       -s, --set
              Set a key to a value and sync. Use with --type.

       -g, --get
              Print the value of a key to standard output.

       -u, --unset
              Unset the keys on the command line.

              Recursively  unset  all keys at or below the key/directory names
              on the command line.

       -a, --all-entries
              Print all key/value pairs in a directory.

              Print all subdirectories in a directory.

       -R, --recursive-list
              Print all subdirectories and entries under a dir, recursively.

              Return 0 if the directory exists, 2 if it does not.

       -t, --type=int|bool|float|string|list|pair
              Specify the type of the cdr pair value being set, or the type of
              the value a schema describes. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

              Specify a short half-line description to go in a schema.

              Specify a several-line description to go in a schema.

              Specify the owner of a schema.

              Specify a schema file to be installed

              Specify a configuration source to use rather  than  the  default

              Access  the config database directly, bypassing server. Requires
              that gconfd is not running.

              Set a schema  and  sync.  Use  with  --short-desc,  --long-desc,
              --owner, and --type.

              Properly  installs  schema  files  on  the command line into the
              database. GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE environment variable should be set
              to a non-default config source or set to the empty string to use
              the default.

              Torture-test an application by setting and unsetting a bunch  of
              values of different types for keys on the command line.

              Torture-test  an application by setting and unsetting a bunch of
              keys inside the directories on the command line.

              Get the short doc string for a key

              Get the long doc string for a key

              Get the name of the schema applied to this key

              Specify the schema name followed by the key to apply the  schema
              name to

              Launch  the  config server (gconfd). (Normally happens automati-
              cally when needed.)

       -v, --version
              Print version

       Help options

       -?, --help
              Show the help message.

       Display the path to the current desktop wallpaper.

              gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename

       Change the widget font to "Serif 12"

              gconftool-2   --type    string    --set    /desktop/gnome/inter-
              face/font_name "Serif 12"
