Talk Title Configuration data management in Gnome
Track Development
Scope Technical
Synopsis One aspect of end user applications is managing application settings / user preferences. Depending on programming language and platform different approaches have been used, most common being plain text files and binary database. This talk explores the method used by GNOME, viz GConf. GConf provides simple API to handle key-value kind configuration data, and provides some more features which are helpful for a desktop application used in multiuser / multiclient environment. Though its used mainly by GNOME, it can be used for non-gnome apps also.
This talk would be useful for beginning/intermediate level Gnome development & also for system administrators maintaining desktops running GNOME.
