Hey guys.

I upgraded Fedora from F15 to F16 via preupgrade. After that I'm having trouble with setting specific options in Gnome. E.g. I can't set the wallpaper, keyboard shortcuts, keyboard settings, themes and so on.

I deleted


with no success.

Has anybody an idea what could be wrong with Gnome or my setup?

P.S. For a new added user everything works well.

Try changing it with 'gconf-editor'. You will need to install the package first.
