File name : import.py

import sys
import compizconfig

#The last input on the command line will be the path to save the file to.

#Change keyword if you want to skip saving entries that are default

I'm using above python script form importing compiz exported profile from Terminal.

Like this : ./import.py myCompizProfile.profile

(I have give all the permission chmode 777 import.py)

This program is working perfectly on Ubuntu 12.04 (Zorin OS) with

Compiz(CompizConfig Settings Manager) version
Now my problem :
When I tried this same code in Ubuntu 12.10 Genome Remix with

Compiz(CompizConfig Settings Manager) version its not working.

Getting an error :

./import.py myCompizProfile.profile
compizconfig - Info: Backend : gsettings
compizconfig - Info: Integration : true
compizconfig - Info: Profile : default

(process:11253): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: g_settings_set_value: value for key 'visual-bell-type'
in schema 'org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences' is outside of valid range

Question : Why I'm getting this error ?
How can I solve this error ?
