I'm trying to change my screensaver settings in
Cinnamon 2.6.13 on
Ubuntu 14.04 trusty.
When the system image was fresh, I was able to change the setting
/org/cinnamon/desktop/screensaver/ask-for-away-message to whatever I wanted. Now, however, the option seems to be "locked" at false, and using
dconf write (even with
sudo) gives the following output:
dconf write /org/cinnamon/desktop/screensaver/ask-for-away-message true error: The operation attempted to modify one or more non-writable keys
The only thing I can think of that could have caused this was when I tried a new screensaver a few weeks ago. I hated it and changed it back to default, but since then I haven't been able to change the setting of ask-for-away-message, and I really want it to true again...
Why is the setting now "non-writable"?
