gv-update-userconfig - update ~/.gv config file
gv-update-userconfig is a simple script to update an .gv config file to
the current version of gv(1).
You can specify a file which is used instead of .gv by using the
optional filename argument. This is useful if the environment variable
XUSERSEARCHPATH is used.
This is done by removing all entries known to cause problems with the
current version of GNU gv (i.e. the one the version of this program
belongs to) and updating the version information in that file. This
resets all problematic items back to the default values.
-h, --help, --usage
displays a short help message
-r removes all resources from ~/.gv that equal the default
resources being shipped with GNU gv (ignoring whitespaces).
-n switches to alternative navigation by adding resp. updating
navigation resources to ~/.gv, i. e. after each page switch
(except if selected by the page number) the page is scrolled to
top (if switching forward) resp. to the bottom (if switching
-N switches to standard navigation by adding resp. updating
navigation resources to ~/.gv.
-s removes navigation resources from ~/.gv and therefore enables
-i updates translation file. Using the optional filename parameter
is strongly recommended for using this option. This option
cannot be used together with any of the other options.
The $(HOME)/.gv file is written by GNU gv when activating the Save
button in one of the configuration dialogs.
The values in there are used, if there is no display-specific resource
value (loaded from $(HOME)/.Xresources at login time or manually
Sometimes older values miss things needed by the new GNU gv to work
properly. This GNU gv will noticy by an old (or missing) version
information in this file and refuse to start until fixed.
