gconftool-2 --set -t boolean /apps/gnome-screensaver/idle_activation_enabled false
-t boolean, eh? Is that some kind of gnome convention? I smell a Generic Strongly Typed Option Serialization Infrastructure.
Smell again. GConf is GNOME's rehash of the Window$ registry concept. So convincing is the similarity that there's a gconf -cleaner project.I guess this is a case of convergent evolution.
