I’m gradually switching from Gnome to i3, and figuring out how to translate some settings that Gnome was managing (e.g. via
gsettings or the gnome tweak tool) into system-wide config files.
For example, I like using emacs-like keybindings in gtk apps (e.g. chromium), and had been running
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme "Emacs"
to configure this. According to the arch wiki, gtk apps will look for system-wide settings in:
environment.extraInit = '' export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS="/etc/xdg:$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS" ''; environment.etc."xdg/gtk-2.0/gtkrc".source = '' gtk-key-theme-name = "Emacs" ''; environment.etc."xdg/gtk-3.0/settings.ini".source = '' [Settings] gtk-key-theme-name = Emacs '';
This works, but is there a cleaner way?
