 DESCRIPTION
      gsettings offers a simple commandline interface to GSettings. It lets
      you get, set or monitor an individual key for changes.

      The SCHEMA and KEY arguments are required for most commands to specify
      the schema id and the name of the key to operate on. The schema id may
      optionally have a :PATH suffix. Specifying the path is only needed if
      the schema does not have a fixed path.

      When setting a key, you also need specify a VALUE The format for the
      value is that of a serialized GVariant, so e.g. a string must include
      explicit quotes: "'foo'". This format is also used when printing out
      values.

 COMMANDS
      get
          Gets the value of KEY. The value is printed out as a serialised
          GVariant.

      monitor
          Monitors KEY for changes and prints the changed values. If no KEY
          is specified, all keys in the schema are monitored. Monitoring
          will continue until the process is terminated.

      writable
          Finds out whether KEY is writable.

      range
          Queries the range of valid values for KEY.

      set
          Sets the value of KEY to VALUE. The value is specified as a
          serialised GVariant.

      reset
          Resets KEY to its default value.

      reset-recursively
          Reset all keys under the given SCHEMA.

      list-schemas
          Lists the installed, non-relocatable schemas. See
          list-relocatable-schemas if you are interested in relocatable
          schemas.

      list-relocatable-schemas
          Lists the installed, relocatable schemas. See list-schemas if you
          are interested in non-relocatable schemas.

      list-keys
          Lists the keys in SCHEMA.

      list-children
          Lists the children of SCHEMA.

      list-recursively
          Lists keys and values, recursively. If no SCHEMA is given, list
          keys in all schemas.

      help
          Prints help and exits.
