open epiphany mailto in claws-mail without gnome


I want epiphany to open mailto-links using claws-mail. I'm running 
Arch-Linux 2.6.35-ARCH x86_64 on an AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core
Processor 6000+ AuthenticAMD with window manager awesome. 

I have just basic gnome-libs -- namely
[skunk deskskunk ~] $ pacman -Q | grep gnome
gnome-icon-theme 2.31.0-1
libgnome-keyring 2.32.0-1
libsoup-gnome 2.32.0-1

I already asked in the IRC and they told me to (a) install a
gnome-config-... tool what I would like to avoid or (b) use
gconftool-2. I tried so via

$ mkdir -p ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/url-handlers/mailto

$ gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/mailto/command -t
string 'claws-mail --compose %s' 

$ gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/mailto/enabled -t bool
and the same in


but it won't work ;-( Has anyone ideas?
