gv-update-userconfig - update ~/.gv config file


gv-update-userconfig [filename]


gv-update-userconfig is a simple script to update an .gv config file to the current
version of gv(1).

You can specify a file which is used instead of .gv by using the optional filename
argument. This is useful if the environment variable XUSERSEARCHPATH is used.

This is done by removing all entries known to cause problems with the current version of
GNU gv (i.e. the one the version of this program belongs to) and updating the version
information in that file. This resets all problematic items back to the default values.

-h, --help, --usage
displays a short help message

-r removes all resources from ~/.gv that equal the default resources being shipped
with GNU gv (ignoring whitespaces).

-n switches to alternative navigation by adding resp. updating navigation resources to
~/.gv, i. e. after each page switch (except if selected by the page number) the
page is scrolled to top (if switching forward) resp. to the bottom (if switching

-N switches to standard navigation by adding resp. updating navigation resources to

-s removes navigation resources from ~/.gv and therefore enables standard navigation.

-i updates translation file. Using the optional filename parameter is strongly
recommended for using this option. This option cannot be used together with any of
the other options.


The $(HOME)/.gv file is written by GNU gv when activating the Save button in one of the
configuration dialogs.

The values in there are used, if there is no display-specific resource value (loaded from
$(HOME)/.Xresources at login time or manually xrdb(1)).

Sometimes older values miss things needed by the new GNU gv to work properly. This GNU gv
will notice old (or missing) version information in this file and refuse to start until
