Additional Settings

Zrythm stores all of its configuration using the GSettings mechanism, which comes with the gsettings command for changing settings from the command line, or the optional GUI tool dconf-editor.

Normally, you shouldn’t need to access any of these settings as most of them are found inside Zrythm’s UI, and it is not recommended to edit them as Zrythm validates some settings before it saves them, but in some cases you may want to change them manually for some reason.

Using gsettings

To see what settings are available and for info on how to use gsettings see man gsettings.

As an example, to change the audio backend you would do gsettings set org.zrythm.Zrythm.preferences audio-backend "jack"

You can use the range option to get a list of the available values:

gsettings range org.zrythm.Zrythmpreferences audio-backend

Using dconf-editor

Install and run dconf-editor, and navigate to org.zrythm.Zrythm. All the settings can be found there.
