I adjust my font aliasing setting by:
defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 3
which is a hint from macworld.
I am wondering where are these
defaults stored and how can I retrive the current values? Thanks~
The "global domain" preferences are stored in
All preference files are stored in ~/Library/Preferences/ in .plist files named by reverse domain name, so for example com.Apple.iPhoto.plist or similar. The 'defaults' command is just a front-end for that.
You wrote a global value that wasn't there before.
to read it now:
to change it
to set it back to normal
Further down in the post you referenced this is all referenced. More info on defaults can be found at apple's developer site.
