Command line options to change gedit preferences

Asked by Marco Lackovic on 2010-05-05

Are there command line options to change gedit preferences?

For example something like this:

gedit --set-bracket_matching=1 --set-auto_indent=1

I don’t know of any flags but if you want command line options to change program preferences try gconf-editor. The specific commands for your example would be:
gconftool-2 --set /apps/gedit-2/preferences/editor/auto_indent/auto_indent
 --type bool true
gconftool-2 --set /apps/gedit-2/preferences/editor/bracket_matching/bracket_matching --type bool false

They are persistent and can be changed easily by just exchanging false with true at the end.

Can you help with this problem?
