I've found the solution. It appears that I got several custom-built libraries in /usr/local/lib that "shadowed" system libraries from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/. I discovered it by checking dynamic libraries loaded by libdconfsettings.so: ldd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules/libdconfsettings.so ... < several dynamic libraries from /usr/local/lib ...
First check if this command returns true: gsettings writable com.canonical.Unity.Launcher favorites If not, install the backend with: sudo apt-get install dconf-gsettings-backend If this doesn't help either, reset your profile with: rm -rf ~/.gnome ~/.gnome2 ~/.gconf ~/.gconfd ~/.metacity .config/dconf/* Afterwards reboot.
