[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] gconf / gconftool question

I have been trying to change some system level settings related to the look
and feel of the GUI on the 770, such as font, font size, and transition
images. Regarding the transition images (startup, shutdown, nokia logo,
etc), I was expecting that I would be able to make these changes with
gconftool-2 in this manner:

gconftool -t string -s /system/systemui/splash/greeting_image "<some image

I have hacked images into the /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/hildon
directory to replace the current startup / greeting images (eg nokia_logo
and hands), but i was looking for a more supported solution, and gconf
seemed like the mechanism.

Anyway, i changed the system images though gconftool-2 (as shown above), and
rebooted. The images were not updated and there was no obvious impact. I
read the keys back out with gconftool-2, and they were still set to the
values I set.

Any suggestions or explanations as to what I am doing wrong regarding the
use of gconftool-2 to change the system UI?

thank you
