Store settings over NFS

For dconf to work correctly when using Network File System (NFS) home directories, the dconf keyfile back end must be used.

  1. Create or edit the /etc/dconf/profile/user file on every client.

  2. At the very beginning of this file, add the following line:


The dconf keyfile back end will only take effect the next time that the user logs in. It polls the keyfile to determine whether updates have been made, so settings may not be updated immediately.

If a keyfile back end is not used, the user settings may not be retrieved or updated correctly.
