I accidently deleted the folder responsible for keybindings, in gconf-editor it would be /apps/metacity/global_keybindings. I deleted the folder out of my home folder by accident. I'm trying to set some keybindings, but can't because I don't have access to that file anymore. How would I go about getting a default folder for that? I would assume it would be as easy as placing a new folder there.

Any help is appreciated!

weak sauce. :( Thanks for the help. – Nxt3 Jan 23 '13 at 18:21

This should/would be recreated by gconf. Logout and login, and open by gconf-editor.

If this fails, reinstall metacity.
