       gsettings-data-convert - GConf to GSettings data migration

       gsettings-data-convert [option...]

       gsettings-data-convert reads values out of the users GConf database and
       stores them in GSettings.

       The information about the mapping from GConf keys to GSettings keys is
       taken from files in /usr/share/GConf/gsettings. Each file in that
       directory is read as a key file, with sections for each GSettings
       schema that is being converted. The entries in each section map
       GSettings keys to paths in the GConf database. Currently,
       gsettings-data-convert supports all basic GConf types as well as lists
       of strings and lists of integers.

       A simple example might look like this:

	   antialiasing = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/antialiasing
	   dpi = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi
	   hinting = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/hinting
	   rgba_order = /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/rgba_order

       If the GSettings schema does not have a fixed path, you must specify
       the path in the group name, separated by a colon character:


       gsettings-data-convert keeps a list of the key files it has already
       converted, so it is safe to run it repeatedly to handle newly appeared
       key files. The expected use of this utility is to make each application
       install a key file for the GConf keys that it wants to be migrated, and
       run gsettings-data-convert every time a user logs in.

       gsettings-schema-convert(1) is a related command that helps with the
       conversion of schemas from GConf to GSettings.
