Restore Failure

Restoring my computer after a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04.

What works: Firefox, miro, virtualbox, konversation, bash, inkscape and evolution data (emails and filters)

What doesn’t work: any gnome setting, evolution accounts (mail, calendar, tasks), telepathy/empathy and theme.

I suspect it’s because of gconf. The more gconf hurts me, the more I’m persuaded to carry a demonic vendetta against it’s existence. I intend at every opportunity to convince supporters of it’s irrational and quaintly naive formulation. 😉

Do you think it was gconf that caused this?
