NAME
       gsettings-data-convert -	GConf to GSettings data	migration

SYNOPSIS
       gsettings-data-convert [option...]

DESCRIPTION
       gsettings-data-convert reads values out of the users GConf database and
       stores them in GSettings.

       The information about the mapping from GConf keys to GSettings keys is
       taken from files	in /usr/share/GConf/gsettings. Each file in that
       directory is read as a key file,	with sections for each GSettings
       schema that is being converted. The entries in each section map
       GSettings keys to paths in the GConf database. Currently,
       gsettings-data-convert supports all basic GConf types as	well as	lists
       of strings and lists of integers.

       A simple	example	might look like	this:

	   [org.gnome.fonts]
	   antialiasing	= /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/antialiasing
	   dpi = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi
	   hinting = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/hinting
	   rgba_order =	/desktop/gnome/font_rendering/rgba_order

       If the GSettings	schema does not	have a fixed path, you must specify
       the path	in the group name, separated by	a colon	character:

	   [org.gnome.fonts:/desktop/gnome/font-rendering/]

       gsettings-data-convert keeps a list of the key files it has already
       converted, so it	is safe	to run it repeatedly to	handle newly appeared
       key files. The expected use of this utility is to make each application
       install a key file for the GConf	keys that it wants to be migrated, and
       run gsettings-data-convert every	time a user logs in.

   Options
       -h, --help
	   Print help and exit

       --dry-run
	   Do not make any changes, just report	what would be done

       --verbose
	   Show	verbose	messages

SEE ALSO
       gsettings-schema-convert(1) is a	related	command	that helps with	the
       conversion of schemas from GConf	to GSettings.
