dconf-export

Export your dconf settings in an editable .sh file.

Usage

dconf-export org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings

Use it to make a backup of your dconf settings or if you'd rather edit them manually than in a GUI.

Example

Previous example will create and executable file org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings.sh with following content :

#!/usr/bin/env sh
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings close "['<Alt>F4']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings maximize "['<Super>Up']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings minimize "['<Primary><Super>Down']"
# [...]
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop "['<Super>D']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications "['<Alt>Tab']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-applications-backward "['<Alt><Shift>Tab']"
# [...]

Limitations

dconf-export needs ruby to run. It will also not work on relocatable schemas.

Alternatives

  • dconf has its own mechanism to dump the configuration with the command dconf dump /.
