GSettings is a core part of GLib and if you remove it's dconf database
it will complain. Just restarting the app will not recreate the database.

In your case: gsettings reset-recursively org.gtk.ned

btw, you probably will want to change that to org.nim as you are just a
normal text editor afaics nothing to do with directly.

The answer is in the gschema xml file, there is a line with <schema ...
id="your schema id">, the gsettings command line util requires this id.
There is a low level dconf util but I caution ppl to use it as it does
not have any knowledge of the schema, iow it can mess you up pretty bad.

I have written most of my dealings with gsettings down on [1], perhaps
it is useful for you.
