guake terminal application fails with guake.schemas error on ubuntu 10.10

I am surprised this one hasn’t been fixed as I can see on google mentions of this back to 2007.

Anyway many google results tell you to execute this command.

[sourcecode]gconftool-2 –install-schema-file /usr/etc/gconf/schemas/guake.schemas[/sourcecode]

This also gives a file not found error.  I did a quick updatedb and locate guake.schemas.  Here is an updated command for Ubuntu 10.10 to fix the “guake.schemas gconf schema isn’t installed” error message.

[sourcecode]gconftool-2 –install-schema-file /usr/share/gconf/schemas/guake.schemas[/sourcecode]

For command line novices: To fix this load up a terminal, execute sudo su and enter your password then copy and paste the above command in.
