Creating custom GNOME settings through group policy

If you need to use group policy to configure GNOME settings that are not controlled by the default set of GNOME 3 group policies, you can use the Custom Gnome 3 settings group policy to do so.

If you enable the Custom Gnome 3 settings group policy, you specify a GNOME schema, key, and data that are implemented by the group policy. You specify the information in the group policy as follows:

  • Gnome schema:key field: schema id:keyname

    For example:

    org.gnome.desktop.sound:theme-name
  • Data field: datastring

    For example:

    freedesktop

Note:   If you define custom settings in this group policy that are already defined in a default GNOME 3 group policy, the settings in the default group policy take precedence, and the settings in this group policy are not implemented.
