I have Debian (jessie)

$uname -a
Linux nn 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.36-1+deb8u1 (2016-09-03) x86_64 

$lsb_release -irc
Distributor ID: Debian
Release:    8.6
Codename:   jessie

I recently install xournal (and also Glib2).

After reboot all my gnome-desktop-settings disappeared. For instance, Language bar, preferences for terminal, the behavior of touchpad. Another problem was that I couldn't set new parameters because whenever I was doing that they were not permanent. Any ideas?


The following solution worked! https://askubuntu.com/questions/558446/my-dconf-gsettings-installation-is-broken-how-can-i-fix-it-without-ubuntu-reins

It seems that xournal or/and Glib meshes with search paths for dynamic libraries. After the following (as suggested in one answer)

sudo mv /etc/ld.so.conf.d/libc.conf /etc/ld.so.conf.d/xuserlocal.conf sudo ldconfig sudo shutdown -r now

I got back all my original settings.
