DConf-0.24.0 / DConf-Editor-3.16.1

Introduction to DConf

The DConf package contains a low-level configuration system. Its main purpose is to provide a backend to GSettings on platforms that don't already have configuration storage systems.

The DConf-Editor, as the name suggests, is a graphical editor for the DConf database. Installation is optional, because gsettings from GLib-2.44.1 provides similar functionality on the commandline.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.7 platform.
