dconf-editor doesn't save changes

I'm using the gnumeric spreadsheet application and would like to save the toolbar layout in a particular configuration. For some reason the settings aren't saved between program runs. After a bit of googling I discovered that the dconf-editor can be used to save the settings (apt-get install dconf-editor) but after selecting the changes I want it doesn't save them. However, if I run the dconf-editor as root (after sudoing at the command prompt) it does save the configuration, but then I have to run gnumeric as root too in order to see them.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

p.s. I'm using the latest version of scorpion.

Re: dconf-editor doesn't save changes

Please try to run gnumeric as well as dconf-editor the following way:
$ unset XDG_CONFIG_HOME && gnumeric
$ unset XDG_CONFIG_HOME && dconf-editor
save changes and check them. Report back the result.

Re: dconf-editor doesn't save changes

Hi Team,

When I use those commands and make the changes in the editor, gnumeric does open with the correct configuration, but only when I start it with unset XDG_CONFIG_HOME && gnumeric, not when I run it using the desktop icon.  But I can just change the command to run gnumeric in the icon properties tab (it works fine)...
Thanks!

Thanks, we can confirm a glitch in some GTK applications, as they don't handle the XDG home variable properly. We will try to fix that in the next Q4OS release.

The issue is now fixed, you only need to update your system, so run in terminal:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Reboot.
