    Question gedit: file saving is still disabled

    I have exact the same problem like in this thread but, unfortunately to me, for some strange reasons the solution doesn't work for me. Is there yet any thoughts what could be done to fix it?

    Here are some key moments of the problem:
    • gedit doesn't allow me to save any file even a new one
    • it shows me an alert with the message "saving has been disabled by system administrator" on exit
    • other editors don't have problems with a file saving and work predictable
    • other account also doesn't meet any difficulties with a file saving
    • under root user gedit works fine (no wonder)
    • the flag /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_save_to_disk in the configure editor gconf-editor is cleared

    Ubuntu 12.10

    Depending on your release it may be in dconf-editor
    Check this section...

    Check via terminal
    gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-save-to-disk
    If true reset to false(default)
    gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-save-to-disk

    ...and check again with first command.
