I am running Openbox without any DE. And I also use some Qt apps such as VLC, Virtualbox and Skype. However, they require some gconf / dconf settings to be set.
For instance to set the correct icon theme:
$ gconftool-2 --set --type string /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme Faenza
When running Gnome, these settings are loaded and used by the Qt apps. However, when running native Openbox, these settings are ignored and I presume that this is due to some gconf / dconf services not being loaded when running Openbox without Gnome.
Therefore my question, how can I run gconf / dconf without Gnome to have my Qt apps having access to the relevant gconf / dconf settings?
