I did as follows:

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay
uint32 300

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 80

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay
uint32 80

But when I do: dconf dump /org/gnome/, I see as follows:

$ dconf dump /org/gnome/desktop/session
[/]
idle-delay=uint32 60

Observation: dconf dump shows real value, but gsettings shows new value but it is different from the one shown by dconf-editor

After Restarting

$ dconf dump /org/gnome/desktop/session
[/]
idle-delay=uint32 60

$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay
uint32 300

Observation: dconf dump shows real value, but gsettings shows default value


Does this mean that gsettings are not working on my system? If so, how can I fix this?

  • Do you see any changes done to dconf when running gsetting? Use: dconf watch /org/gnome/ idle-delay – slybloty Feb 27 at 15:03
  • @slybloty I ran dconf watch /org/gnome/ idle-delay in first terminal. And I used gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 80 in another terminal. Nothing happened on the first terminal. – Nikhil Feb 28 at 11:44
