dconf is a package used to configure GNOME settings from the terminal. Example, this will sort directories first in Nautilus:
dconf write /org/gnome/nautilus/preferences/sort-directories-first true
However, Libreoffice don't have any utilities to do that, but it should be easy to craft it because registrymodifications.xcu is very structured:
I use to set this setting for example:
<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Calc/Content/Display"><prop oor:name="ValueHighlighting" oor:op="fuse"><value>true</value></prop></item>
<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Calc/Input"><prop oor:name="AutoInput" oor:op="fuse"><value>false</value></prop></item>
Let's call the current missing option for --conf, it should look like this for my above setting example:
libreoffice --conf /org.openoffice.Office.Calc/Content/Display/ValueHighlighting true
libreoffice --conf /org.openoffice.Office.Calc/Input/AutoInput false

Who need that instead of using Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced > Open Expert Configuration ?
Please could you elaborate a bit on the usefulness of this enhancement for advanced users?

Its possible to build and run bash scripts with command line options to save time instead of using GUI.

I understand, but if you can write script, why not write directly registrymodifications.xcu ?

Because that would not be safe enough, only command line options will modify registrymodifications.xcu properly and tell you if they fail to do so.

I agree with Jean-Baptiste. You can either edit the config from the GUI or write registrymodifications.xcu directly.
@David, if you plan to work on this, move it to NEW, otherwise, moving it to RESOLVED WONTFIX
