So after a little reading, I figured out that I have to install gconf-editor.

OK, I get it.  It's like the Windows Registry.

It is NOTHING like the windows registry.  GConf is simply a key/value pair with some magic to detect changes.  I hate when peopel compare it with the windows regsitry.  GConf/GSettings and everything else is just a pragmatic way to do to settings.  We do the same things in text.  When you do use go into some conf file and type:


then you're doing the same thing.  The only difference is that we added a name space and added some formatting instructions to the input.  Let's not keep propogating the same tribal untruths out there.

Sorry, I get really irritated when I see GConf compared to the windows settings and have it's negativity applied to GConf.
