    Question Restoring key "<no value set>" original state

    How does one set a key, e.g. an integer, to the <no value> state?

    If you reset [erase] a given key that has an integer type and value of <no value> and then recreate a new key with the same name and type of integer there seems to be no value that is acceptable to the command line to set a value of <no value> ... any ideas? I've used the command line and gconf-editor to no avail.

    Thanks! [Yes, I know this is a supergeek question!]

    p.s. I do know how to reset the schema for this key, just not the null value!

    I know this is extremely late but someone else might benefit.

    If the entry existed already before you changed it, just right-click on it and select Unset.
    It will disappear. If you quit gconf-editor and start it again, it should reappear with <no value> as the setting.

    Anyway, unset is basically the same as deleting it. They have the same effect, I think.
