Hello,I want to convert my application to use GSettings (and dconf) instead of GConf2.
In the old GConf it was possible to add new keys and values during runtime. Eg. I could recklessly write
conf_save_int_value("a_new_key", 1234);and GCond simply created "a_new_key" and saved the value in the registry. No complains or errors, it just worked. And it was good.
The old GConf-based code is here: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~osmoma/audio-recorder/trunk/view/head:/src/gconf.c --- GSettings seems to be different.All keys and their types must be *strictly pre-defined* in a xml schema file. And the schema must be compiled and installed to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ directory.
Ok, I have successfully defined and installed my schema file.Ref: http://www.futuredesktop.com/tmp/org.gnome.audio-recorder.gschema.xml (a simple test).
And I can read/write the values via the GSettings object. That's fine! Ref: http://www.futuredesktop.com/tmp/dconf.cBut sometimes my code gets a new key (eg. a device name), and I want to store it and its value to GSettings registry.
?It's impossible to add new keys to schema (and GSettings) during runtime? Is the predefined schema the only way?
