I want to open up this with what
dconf-editor actually is:
dconf-editorprogram provides a graphical interface for editing settings that are stored by other applications using the
gsettingsfunctions of the
gliblibrary, or in the
dconfutilities provides similar functionality on the commandline.
Removed footnote declarations, added formatting and emphasis.
That last part — People ignoring this kill me. It's the other half of a solution to one's query which is always always missing in answers where the command line would provide an equally-satisfactory result.
Why? Why do so few people know about this? I simply do not understand, especially since this is a forum with text, you would imagine the command line answer, something which people could copy and paste would be ideal to include as an "Advanced" / "Power user" option those standing by could incorporate into their post-install scripts for themselves and other people.
You don't even have to be a software developer to use software within a terminal emulator of preference. Far as users go, I am as dumb as a sack of rocks. It took me years before I discovered the joy of the
xargs command — something which I am going to attempt incorporating more into the future. Let me reiterate — I am an ordinary user with desires to be slightly above-average.
As a Linux user, I already go into things knowing I am sacrificing convenience for choice. And sometimes, even exchanging functionality for freedom. But if there is one thing that Linux does well, it's being modified by using commands within a terminal. Again, let me reiterate this is a text-based website you are reading. Discourse may have fancy graphical bells and whistles but that's lipstick on a pig, where one could browse and interact in this forum using their terminal with
links2. Am I that masochistic? Of course not.
I like my front-ends like everybody else. But where a solution could be as simple as punching in a command or two in the terminal, I don't see why users answering questions shouldn't strive to do just that, to compliment their "Recommended" answer using a graphical front-end. The moment you begin typing
dconf-editor, you should be thinking about how to perform changes with
