<vagrantc>
oh, where are all the magic tricks
18:46
<highvoltage>
they are invisible
18:46
<vagrantc>
anyone remember the gconf magic to disable screensavers on lucid?
18:47
oh, i remember. i stuck it in a package.
18:48
<mistik1>
does anyone know why they invented gconf?
18:49
<highvoltage>
because there was a need to programatically set key/value pairs in desktop environments?
18:49
<vagrantc>
that's useful and all ... but the implementation is ... hrm.
18:49
<mistik1>
you mean something was wrong with writing foo=bar in a text file?
18:50
I for one absolutely refuse to use or program anything that uses gconf
18:51
<highvoltage>
vagrantc: have you used gsettings/dconf at all? it's horrible to work with
18:51
anyway, in my cheat notes I have:
18:51
GConf-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --set --type string /apps/gnome-screensaver/mode blank-only
18:51
and
18:51
GConf-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory --set --type boolean /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_lock_screen True /apps/panel/global/disable_l
18:51
not sure if any of that is useful for you
18:52
<vagrantc>
i stuck it in a package where i can use gconf-defaults/gconf-mandatory
19:05Nick change: Ahmuck-Sr -> Ahmuck
19:11
<vagrantc>
highvoltage: is that the same as gconftool
19:11
?
19:13
<highvoltage>
vagrantc: I was wondering the exact same thing when I pasted that
19:13
it's been gconftool-2 in recent releases
19:13
<vagrantc>
gconftool seems to be an alternative pointing to gconftool-2

23:44* Lns has always known it as gconftool-2
23:51MorningSon (~MorningSo@cpe-66-25-84-220.satx.res.rr.com) left irc: Quit: WeeChat 0.3.0
23:53
<alkisg>
It's not needed in Lucid either way, as gnome-screensaver is patched in Ubuntu to only allow/show blank screen
23:53
...for ltsp clients (checks the environment for LTSP_CLIENT)

<ball>
Do most nettops make passable ltsp terminals?
23:56
<alkisg>
Anything with 64 ram can make an ltsp terminal, and with 256 a descent one
