I'm trying to change a setting of a gnome shell extension with a bash command. The settings controls at what monitor and at which side of the screen the dock appears, which is part of the 'dash to dock' shell extension. I've tried:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock preferred-monitor 2

this gives the error message:

No such schema 'org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock'

As indeed, none of the settings values of the shell extension entry in dconf have 'schemas'.

How can I change the values which do not have a schema in dconf, what command do I use? Ofcourse I can change them with the gui in dconf or with the settings menu of the extension, but that's not what I want.
