It is to my understanding that there are methods to learn of Compiz configuration with regard to its focus policy as followings. ( Perhaps there are more, but I have yet to discovered. )

  1. gconftool-2
    gconftool-2 get /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/click_to_focus
  2. Using ccsm

My question is, does compiz provide supported schemas by which gsettings could as well be used to query its focus policy? I know that in either mutter or metacity we can use

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences focus-mode

I simply wish to query a value for it in a system that is already ported for gsettings. Thank you. :}
