       glib-compile-schemas - GSettings schema compiler


       glib-compile-schemas [option...] {directory}


       glib-compile-schemas compiles all the GSettings XML schema files in
       directory into a binary file with the name gschemas.compiled that can
       be used by GSettings. The XML schema files must have the filename
       extension .gschema.xml. For a detailed description of the XML file
       format, see the GSettings documentation.

       At runtime, GSettings looks for schemas in the glib-2.0/schemas
       subdirectories of all directories specified in the XDG_DATA_DIRS
       environment variable. The usual location to install schema files is

       In addition to schema files, glib-compile-schemas reads 'vendor
       override' files, which are key files that can override default values
       for keys in the schemas. The group names in the key files are the
       schema id, and the values are written in serialized GVariant form.

       -h, --help
           Print help and exit

           Store gschemas.compiled in TARGETDIR instead of directory.

           Don't write gschemas.compiled. This option can be used to check
           .gschema.xml sources for errors.

           Do not enforce restrictions on key names. Note that this option is
           purely to facility the transition from GConf, and will be removed
           at some time in the future.
