[Bug 1429670] Re: Desktop reverts to defaults, can't be changed


Looks like my ~/.config/dconf files were corrupted somehow.  I removed
them with:

mv ~/.config/dconf/ ~/.config/dconf.bak

And now at least I can re-create my old settings.

** Changed in: unity (Ubuntu)

  Desktop reverts to defaults, can't be changed

Status in unity package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  All of a sudden my launcher icons, wallpaper image etc, reverted to
  default, and when I "unlock from launcher" on the defaults, they
  disappear after about a second, and then reappear when I tried to re-
  arrange the icon order.

  I think there's perhaps something screwy with gconf (? - isn't that
  where the personal launcher app list is?) because another setting went
  away and can't be restored (I use caps lock as another control).
  However, I don't know how to test this or where to look for logs, and
  the *symptoms* turn up in Unity.

  If anyone can help with places to look for diagnostics etc., I'd
  appreciate it.  Thanks.
