I'm trying to get the Wicd tray icon to show up in 11.10 Unity desktop.
When I use dconf editor to add 'Wicd' to the whitelist in Unity>panel, it shows the change but after I log off and then log on the Wicd icon is not in the tray. When I open dconf editor, the change I made is gone.
Trying sudo dconf or gksu dconf opens some other application.
Is dconf broken?
Addendum: I have discovered that the configuration file (~/.conf/dconf/user) is changed when when ever I use dconf editor to change it, but it is also changed when logging on after logging off. Apparently some do-gooder process reverts it to default without notifying you.
Time to file a bug? Perhaps this bug?
