Yet again, I download a program that is using gconf for its settings and won't compile on slackware! I'm not keen on gconf. It seems too much like the windows registry and I much prefer the .rc file approach to settings.
Is it just me? We already have .rc files and Xresources? Do we really need a 3rd place to store settings?
The Linux world seems to be going more and more gnomish all the time.
