Description Paul Kessler 2012-05-29 22:50:13 EDT
Description of problem: 
Running Fedora 17 32-bit in a virtual machine, Vmware Workstation 8, and attempting to make changes to the desktop schema with the gsettings command results in a process warning and the command then fails. 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Every time I try to alter a setting.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-seconds true
2. gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-date true

  
Actual results:

** (process:23712): WARNING **: The connection is closed

Expected results:

The desktop schema should be updated and the clock modified.

Additional info:

I have not tried this on an installation outside of a virtual environment yet. However I have also been able to reproduce this error with the Fedora-17-i686-Live-Desktop.iso Livecd running under VirtualBox. I also verified that the schema key appears as writable.

This looks to be a problem with dconf-service or d-bus generally. Please make sure to run this command within a running Gnome session under the same user.

This did solve the issue, I was operating as root building a remix.
Thank you!
