Comment 23 for bug 111061


We've been learning a thing or three about the subject lately, and here's
what we've found.

/usr/share/gconf/defaults/ is where the original defaults come from. It gets
copied to the users' home directories when the users log in the first time.

The gnome-color-chooser application creates a separate file which overrides
the particular user's default settings. Making some changes with
gnome-color-chooser and then reading the resulting file should be
instructive on finding which key/variable pairs you need to read.

The gconf-editor package is a graphical interface to gconf, and it may also
be of assistance.

python-gconf contains the bindings that allow you to work with gconf in
python. (KDE's wine configuration tool is written in python, if my memory
serves me correctly. )

Happy trails,
