xfconf-query -c xfdashboard -p PROPERTY-NAME
xfconf-query -c xfdashboard -p PROPERTY-NAME -n -t TYPE -s VALUE
The following table lists all possible settings affecting the core of
xfdashboard. All property names must be prefixed with the path /.
|always-launch-new-instance||boolean||false||If set to true clicking a favourite in quicklaunch will always start a new instance of this application. Otherwise the last known active window of this application will be activate.|
|enable-unmapped-window-workaround||boolean||false||If set to true a workaround for minimized windows is activated which tries to get still images of these windows by restoring them shortly and minimizing them again. Be aware that this is a workaround and your minimized windows could stay unminimized.|
|favourites||array of strings||(empty)||Contains a list of strings. Each string specifies a .desktop file to an application shown in quicklaunch. The order in this array is the order how the icons in quicklaunch appear. Each .desktop file must be given without path - just the plain filename.|
|min-notification-timeout||unsigned integer||3000||Specifies the minimum time in milliseconds a notification is displayed on screen.|
If set to true then the search view will be resetted when xfdashboard resumes. That means the active view is switched back to last view active before search was started and search box will be emptied.

|theme||string||xfdashboard||Name of theme to use for styling. More information about file-location and how this setting is used see section File location and structure in documentation about theming.|
|window-content-creation-priority||string||(empty)||Defines the priority for window content creation. The following values are valid: immediate, high, normal and low. The value 'immediate' will create the window content for each window at the time it was requested. It is also the default value if property was not set or set to an invalid value. The other values define the time spent to create window contents when the application is idle. While 'high' tries to create as many window content textures as possible, the values 'normal' and 'low' will create much less.|
The following table lists all possible settings affecting the built-in applications view of
xfdashboard. All property names must be prefixed with the path /components/applications-view/.

xfdashboard. All property names must be prefixed with the path /components/windows-view/.
|scroll-event-changes-workspace||boolean||false||If set to true any scroll event, like mouse-whell up or down, will change the active workspace. This behaviour is the same as in workspace selector.|
A key binding describes which action to trigger when a specified key combination is pressed at an actor - optionally this action can be triggered at a different target actor.
Key bindings are configured in a XML document.
xfdashboard will look up for the key binding configuration file
bindings.xml at the paths in the following order:
XfdashboardFocusableas source matches every currently focused actor and can be used as a global key bindings which works at any time.
