Configuration system (mate-conf)

MateConf is a system that was invented to make application preferences more manageable for system administrators.

MateConf stores data in the user space in $HOME/.mateconf:

  • desktop/mate for desktop settings
  • apps

MateConf tool

mateconftool-2 is the MATE configuration tool. It is meant to be used from command line

$ mateconftool-2 -R /desktop/mate

That will display some of the MATE desktop settings.

MateConf editor

The MateConf Editor is a graphical application and as such is more targeted towards the general user.
