    where are DCONF keys saved in file system? [dconf-editor & gsettings]

    I currently come across dconf-editor and wonder where dconf keys are saved in Linux systems. I also know that gsettings command can change dconf keys in terminal. For Example:

    # gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-date true
    # gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.session show-real-name-on-panel false
    # gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface clock-show-date true

    Where are org.gnome in file system? Where can I get a list of all dconf keys in file system?
    Thanks.

    You can do

    Code:
    dconf dump /
    although I *think* that only lists non-default key-value pairs; or

    Code:
    gsettings list-recursively
    which seems to list everything.

    And with this command you safe the output direct in a file:
    Code:
    gsettings list-recursively > filename
    You can change "filename" in anything you want.

    I assume the settings are stored in:

    ~/.config/dconf/user

    The file command thinks user is data meaning it is binary stuff.

    Code:
    dn@Roxanne:~/.config/dconf$ file user
    user: data
    It is not human readable.
