mateconf-gsettings-schema-convert - MateConf to GSettings schema conversion


mateconf-gsettings-schema-convert [option...] {file}



converts between MateConf and GSettings schema file formats. Note that the conversion is not expected to be fully automated. You are expected to verify and edit the result of the conversion.
