I am attempting to use dconf from the command line to update mate terminal profile entries.
dconf read /org/mate/terminal/profiles/profile6/visible-name produces "kepler" which is the visible-name attribute of profile6. All good. However, if I attempt a write, such as
dconf write /org/mate/terminal/profiles/profile6/visible-name "'kerpl'"
I get the following:
error: Cannot autolaunch D-Bus without X11 $DISPLAY
What causes this, and how can I resolve it?
