  const gchar* filename,
  GError** error


Writes the contents of key_file to filename using g_file_set_contents(). If you need stricter guarantees about durability of the written file than are provided by g_file_set_contents(), use g_file_set_contents_full() with the return value of g_key_file_to_data().

This function can fail for any of the reasons that g_file_set_contents() may fail.
