DESCRIPTION
       gsettings offers	a simple commandline interface to GSettings. It	lets
       you get,	set or monitor an individual key for changes.

       The SCHEMA and KEY arguments are	required for most commands to specify
       the schema id and the name of the key to	operate	on. The	schema id may
       optionally have a :PATH suffix. Specifying the path is only needed if
       the schema does not have	a fixed	path.

       When setting a key, you also need specify a VALUE The format for	the
       value is	that of	a serialized GVariant, so e.g. a string	must include
       explicit	quotes:	"'foo'". This format is	also used when printing	out
       values.

       Note that gsettings needs a D-Bus session bus connection	to write
       changes to the dconf database.

COMMANDS
       get
	   Gets	the value of KEY. The value is printed out as a	serialised
	   GVariant.

       monitor
	   Monitors KEY	for changes and	prints the changed values. If no KEY
	   is specified, all keys in the schema	are monitored. Monitoring will
	   continue until the process is terminated.

       writable
	   Finds out whether KEY is writable.

       range
	   Queries the range of	valid values for KEY.

       describe
	   Queries the description of valid values for KEY.

       set
	   Sets	the value of KEY to VALUE. The value is	specified as a
	   serialised GVariant.

       reset
	   Resets KEY to its default value.

       reset-recursively
	   Reset all keys under	the given SCHEMA.

       list-schemas
	   Lists the installed,	non-relocatable	schemas. See
	   list-relocatable-schemas if you are interested in relocatable
	   schemas.

       list-relocatable-schemas
	   Lists the installed,	relocatable schemas. See list-schemas if you
	   are interested in non-relocatable schemas.

       list-keys
	   Lists the keys in SCHEMA.

       list-children
	   Lists the children of SCHEMA.

       list-recursively
	   Lists keys and values, recursively. If no SCHEMA is given, list
	   keys	in all schemas.

       help
	   Prints help and exits.
