I've got Ekiga installed (in openSUSE 12.1/KDE4.7.2), and want to
import my config from my backup. I followed the steps here:
... so I copied over the .gconf/ekiga directory and contents and
started up Ekiga... but it doesn't find any of the old settings at

I've searched all over my /home, looking for other palces Ekiga could
be hiding its config, but turned up nothing so far.  I've killed
gconfd-2, deleted .gconf/ekiga and restarted Ekiga... and it starts up
using the basic settings I set in the first start wizard... and it
recreates a very basic .gconf/ekiga.  This is apparently not where it
stores the SIP configuration information.

So.. does anyone have any clue where Ekiga is hiding its main configuration?

Hmmm that is so... weird. I don't understand gconf at all :-P I
rebooted and.. whiz bang, Ekiga picked up the config that was sitting
in the .gconf/ekiga directory for hours beforehand. Weird that
application level config changes are not picked up until after at
least a logout/login.

Anyway... it works.. and you can ignore me again :-)
