COnfigurator for Gnome 0.3.2


COnfigurator for Gnome 0.3.2


A program for editing advanced Gnome settings in an easy way - the backend
uses gconf and XML descriptions, but all the user will see is a (somewhat)
nice GUI.


- If a section doesn't have any valid GConf keys then a notebook tab will
no longer be created for it.


- Small change to the configure script to make it properly detect
- Fixed a bug were a GConf key would be marked as being valid when in fact
it had no schema attached to it (this would then lead to a crash when
trying to access the schema).
