Mousepad: config file file location

I can not find the config file of Mousepad (0.4.0 in Debian 9 stable).

Manpage doesn't tell about it.
The about dialog doesn't tell me also.
There is ~/.config/Mousepad/ but the content doesn't make sense.

Re: Mousepad: config file file location

The config information is stored in gsettings:

gsettings list-recursively org.xfce.mousepad

Re: Mousepad: config file file location

"gsettings" is an application. But where is the config data stored in the filesystem?

dconf database. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dconf.

Edit: if you are looking for the location of the database, it's located at ~/.config/dconf/user. Or at least it is on Arch.

https://docs.xfce.org/apps/mousepad/start#settings helped me. I even managed to preselect line wrapping in print.

You may want to look in this directory, /usr/share/polkit-1/actions

Re: Mousepad: config file file location

The settings of Mousepad can be exported/imported from gsettings to share/backup them between users/computers as below

$ dconf dump /org/xfce/mousepad/ > mousepad.settings
$ dconf load /org/xfce/mousepad/ < mousepad.settings

Hope this help someone.
