xsettingsd is a daemon that implements the XSETTINGS specification. The typical invocation is from a user's ~/.xsession file.
It is intended to be small, fast, and minimally dependent on other libraries. It can serve as an alternative to gnome-settings-daemon for users who are not using the GNOME desktop environment but who still run GTK+ applications and want to configure things such as themes, font antialiasing/hinting, and UI sound effects.
Additional documentation is available at the project's website: https://github.com/derat/xsettingsd
- -c, --config=FILE
Load settings from FILE (default is ~/.xsettingsd).
- -h, --help
Display a help message and exit.
- -s, --screen=SCREEN
Use the X screen numbered SCREEN (default of -1 means all screens).
Running dump_xsettings(1) while another XSETTINGS daemon, such as gnome-settings-daemon, is already running will print your current settings in xsettingsd's configuration file format.
Here is a short example ~/.xsettingsd file:
Net/ThemeName "Human" Xft/Antialias 1 Xft/DPI 100352 Xft/HintStyle "hintfull" Xft/Hinting 1 Xft/RGBA "none" Xft/lcdfilter "none"
