5 GConfEngine

a GConf "database"

5.1 Overview

A <g-conf-engine> represents a connection to the GConf database. The default <g-conf-engine>, returned from gconf-engine-get-default, represents the user's normal configuration source search path. Configuration-related utilities, such as a configuration editor tool, might wish to access a particular configuration source directly; they can obtain a non-default <g-conf-engine> with gconf-engine-get-for-address.

Once you have a <g-conf-engine>, you can query and manipulate configuration values.
