Once again, unless someone has written a document describing how to
change the Gconf database (and perhaps something about how that database
works) this is all of little use to me.
* Please don't tell me "edit the .schema file" (which one? how? those
things are incomprehensible - yes, I know XML).
* Please don't tell me "do it wit gconf-editor" (gconf-editor does *not*
have any way of adding a stupid icon to the panel).
* Please don't tell me "copy the config files from xyz" (what use is
that if I can't edit the config files in the first place?)
/\/_/ A life? Sounds great!
\/_/ Do you know where I could download one?
