       gv-update-userconfig - update ~/.gv config file


       gv-update-userconfig [filename]


       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
              standard navigation.

       -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.
