GConf is a configuration database system for storing application
preferences. It supports default or mandatory settings set by the
administrator, and changes to the database are instantly applied to all
running applications. It is written for the GNOME desktop but doesn't
require it.
This package contains the static libraries and header files needed to
build applications using GConf.

gconf (3.2.6-3ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=low
* Merge with Debian unstable, remaining changes:
+ don't package the gsettings backend since it's not meant to be
+ debian/patches/02_xml-gettext-domain.patch:
- use gettext from schemas translations
+ debian/patches/05_nodisplay_autostart.patch:
- Don't show in "Startup Applications"
+ debian/patches/06_onlyshowin_unity.patch:
- Add Unity to OnlyShowIn
+ debian/70gconfd_path-on-session, debian/gconf2-common.install:
- add additional gconf path depending on selected desktop session:
+ debian/gconf-schemas: Shrink the generated %gconf-tree.xml, by
filtering out locale specific defaults for uninstalled locales,
leading tabs, empty short descriptions, and mtimes (which aren't
interesting for system-wide defaults).
+ debian/gconf2.triggers, debian/gconf2.postinst, debian/gconf2.postrm:
- Declare a new trigger on /usr/share/GConf/gsettings to watch when
new gsettings convert files are installed.
+ debian/default.path, debian/gconf2-common.dirs:
- drop old compatibility path from intrepid, that was required until
+ Split gconf-service further into gconf-service and gconf-service-backend,
one package being Multi-Arch: foreign and the other Multi-Arch: none, so
that we correctly handle the fact that gconf2 needs backend modules of
the same arch whereas other reverse-dependencies just need a working
+ debian/patches/0001-Support-s-to-as-migrations-v2.patch: Support 's' to
'as' migrations
+ debian/patches/call-dbus_g_thread_init.patch
- Initialize dbus threads before doing anything. This fixes crashes in
multithreaded applications that don't use libdbus directly.
+ debian/patches/reduce-polling.patch
- Call the cleanup routine every minute, instead of twice per minute, to
reduce wakeups and therefore power usage.
