GConf is a framework used by the Oracle Solaris Desktop environment to store configuration settings of the desktop and applications. GConf simplifies the administration of preferences for Oracle Solaris Desktop users.
GConf enables system administrators to do the following tasks:
Set mandatory values for particular preferences for all users. In this way, system administrators can control whether users can update particular preferences.
Set default values for particular preferences for all users.
Use suggested values for preferences that are specified in definition files.
GConf also notifies applications when a preference value changes across a network. When you change a preference, all applications that use the preference are immediately updated.
