Can I get "dconf-editor" to show as much information as "gconf-editor" did in 11.04?

I find using the gconf version much easier and has better application integration.

I have both installed. Are there additional packages to make this improvement?


No. There is a transition going on here since gconf-editor (xml backend) is going to be phased out in favor of dconf-editor (gnome 3 binary blob). So, you can expect more and more settings in gconf to become invalid or removed and new settings to appear in dconf.

More info:

  • xml has been around a long time now trading for a binary blob.

    xml is very slow. Binary blob is very fast :+
