I didn't know our panel would shrink down to a height of 10. But be that
as it may, to make a system-wide gconf setting change, do
gconftool-2 --direct \
--config-source =xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system \
--type int --set /apps/panel/toplevels/top_panel/padding 0
Returning to a slightly earlier question in a different thread, which
has been unanswered for like... 30 seconds or so ;-)
Is there a utility that can show me what kind of settings are available,
and optionally configurable? Note I would not like to delegate to
someone to run sabayon every release.
I would rather manage a default and/or mandatory configuration file of
which I presume one is "/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system", but what is the other?
