Do you know how we could change it with gconf-editor ? I've been searching for it, but to no avail. The reason why I ask is because I've got too change some default gnome settings for an install on 40 -45 machines and I don't want to do it manually everywhere. Sabayon nor Pessulus can help so I'm a bit stuck.
