I'm trying to package polly  for F16.
Everything works fine but obviously the package makes GConf schemas only
available for root, not for normal users.
Any hints on where my mistake is?
That could be regression in gconftool-2. Many years ago we've had to SIGHUP
gconfd-2 at the end of the scriptlets. Later on, a "reload" patch applied to
gconftool has made that unnecessary:
That patch has been dropped with the upgrade from GConf 2.32.x to 3.1.3 in 2011.
It has not been merged either, possibly because the code uses a different method
to signal the daemon.
What I can reproduce with F-16 is that installing the package does not make
available the schemas unless I SIGHUP gconfd-2 manually (or restart it).
