This chapter lists several preferences whose settings you can change to improve the performance of the Java Desktop System. You can use the gconftool-2 command to set values for preferences for users. The example commands in this chapter show how to set values in the user configuration source.
You can also use the --direct and --config-source options to set mandatory values or default values for preferences. You can also use the gconftool-2 command in a script to set the values of many preferences. For more information about the gconftool-2 command and the options that are available with the command, see Chapter 1, Using GConf.
