The key isn't writable by me or by super-user - you can see the options to change anything are grayed out. I think that since gconf saves settings on a per-user basis, that when running gconf as super user or as root I get the settings for the root user. I should note that when I change to root in a terminal via sudo -su and run gconf-editor, the key there is editable and has no problems, but has no effect on my personal settings.
You'll also note that the given key value shows as blank. This is what I'm after anyways, and I think I got that because I edited the %gconf.xml file in ~/.gconf/desktop that holds that key. However, looking at my desktop, you can see that it's still labeled "Trash" and trying to rename it has no effect. Renaming the files in the hopes gconf will re-create new ones with default settings is also unsuccessful.
I tried running this command from a terminal both as myself and as super-user, in the hopes that it would reset all the values in the apps>nautilus>desktop folder
- Code: Select all
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/nautilus/desktop
But that didn't unstick it either.
