This is a question of context: the above magic incantations should
happen in a place where the gvfsd is capable of inheriting this
environment. Probably at your Gnome session's start, wherever that
is...

...or however that is called under those variants (note that gconftool
probably is relevant to Xfce, it definitely is to MATE -- how the
configuration bit paths are there is left as an exercise to the reader:
shudder: on the one hand people say that editing text config files is
"too hard" for "normal users", on the other hand they dump non-interfaces
on them that are crude key-value databases with an excuse of an editor
(gconf, Mozilla's about:config) bolted on and with an implicit "whack-
the-key" game. But I disgress).
