RE: scripting settings

I was using 
gconftool-2 --set .....
to set the values. Thank you for the suggestion it works easily on my
Ubuntu setup,
that I am using to debug my script base.

However on my target device, a Gumstix Overo, I cannot seem to get the
info to load. It is like I have no system settings service. I can see my
modem being
recognised by dbus-monitor, I just cannot activate a connection.
"Connection was not provided by any settings service"

On this device I have no Gui and currently no qdbus on the system. I do
have nmcli.
I am finding debug tricky at present. Any debug suggestions would be
much appreciated.

For reference I am using a 3 modem, made by ZTE, model MF112. Works
perfectly on Ubuntu
Linux op-ubuntu 2.6.31-22-generic #67-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 19:10:07 UTC
2010 i686 GNU/Linux
The Overo system,
Linux overo 2.6.32 #1 Sun Nov 21 16:22:56 GMT 2010 armv7l unknown

How do you edit the configuration files? If you edit them directly,
that's a 
problem since GConf manages configuration via its daemon and can discard
changes. You should consider using gconftool-2 to edit the

You can simply dump a connection to a file:
gconftool-2 --dump /system/networking/connections/1 > myconnnection.conf

edit the file and then load it as a new configuration:
gconftool-2 --load myconnnection.conf

If there is an error in a configuration, nm-connection-editor should
when reading it (see .xsession-errors or output on terminal).
