glib-compile-schemas - GSettings schema compiler


   glib-compile-schemas [OPTION...] {DIRECTORY}


   glib-compile-schemas compiles all the GSettings XML schema files in
   DIRECTORY into a binary file with the name gschemas.compiled that can
   be used by GSettings. The XML schema files must have the filename
   extension .gschema.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file
   format, see the GSettings documentation.

   At runtime, GSettings looks for schemas in the glib-2.0/schemas
   subdirectories of all directories specified in the XDG_DATA_DIRS
   environment variable. The usual location to install schema files is

   In addition to schema files, glib-compile-schemas reads 'vendor
   override' files, which are key files that can override default values
   for keys in the schemas. The group names in the key files are the
   schema id, and the values are written in serialized GVariant form.
   Vendor override files must have the filename extension

   By convention, vendor override files begin with nn_ where nn is a
   number from 00 to 99. Higher numbered files have higher priority (eg:
   if the same override is made in a file numbered 10 and then again in a
   file numbered 20, the override from 20 will take precedence).


   -h, --help
       Print help and exit

       Print program version and exit

       Store gschemas.compiled in the TARGET directory instead of

       Abort on any errors in schemas. Without this option, faulty schema
       files are simply omitted from the resulting compiled schema.

       Don't write gschemas.compiled. This option can be used to check
       .gschema.xml sources for errors.

       Do not enforce restrictions on key names. Note that this option is
       purely to facility the transition from GConf, and will be removed
       at some time in the future.
