I've had success adding the path to $XDG_DATA_DIRS such that
can be found, if that makes sense.

i.e if you have things in ~/.local/share/glib-2.0/schemas, you might write:

export XDG_DATA_DIRS="$XDG_DATA_DIRS:$HOME/.local/share"

Works for me. I refuse to install anything but packages system-wide,
so this comes in handy.
