    gsettings missing

    I should be able to run gsettings, but every time I run a "gsettings" command in a terminal I get the message "command not found: gsettings"

    Mind you, I did not do the typical Ubuntu install on this computer. I did an command line install with the alternate CD, then manually added in lightdm & gnome-shell (the idea was to make a purely gnome-shell version of oneiric). Everything has worked great except for this one issue.

    I also checked that I have the following installed:
    gsettings-desktop-schemas
    dconf-gsettings-backend
    dconf-tools
    libdconf0

    Smile Re: gsettings missing

    I ran a gsettings command using the /bin/bash shell instead of my usual /bin/zsh. The Bash shell gave me the hint I needed to solve this:
    "The program 'gsettings' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-bin

    So I installed libglib2.0-bin and that solved the problem.

    Great pity!

    I met the same problem, but the above method doesn't work on my laptop. The bash show me:
    E: Couldn't find package libglib2.0-bin
    Now my system is ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS

    Anyone could give me some more information? Thanks for all!
