GConf and Daemons


Hi all.

I am wanting to patch "avahi", to read in some customized values at startup. I am thinking of doing it via GConf.

However, I believe that GConf is user-session specific.


So, how should I go about setting up GConf for Avahi?


Doing "ps -aux | grep avahi" gives me ::
Code:
[ajay@localhost ~]$ pwd
/home/ajay

[ajay@localhost ~]$ ps -aux | grep avahi
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.8/FAQ
avahi     1154  0.0  0.0   3256   792 ?        S    14:39   0:00 avahi-daemon: running [linux.local]
avahi     1155  0.0  0.0   3124     4 ?        S    14:39   0:00 avahi-daemon: chroot helper
ajay     16057  0.0  0.0   4420   716 pts/1    S+   17:56   0:00 grep --color=auto avahi
Surprisingly, the avahi daemons are running in the context of "avahi" user. However, there is no (known to me) avahi login on my system.


I might be sounding very stupid.
However, I will be grateful for a reply that may clear my misunderstandings.


Looking forward to a reply.


Thanks and Regards,
Ajay
