Advance Settings (gnome-tweak-tool) and System Settings do not stick

SUSE LINUX
Release 12.1 (Asparagus)
Kernel Linux 3.1.0-1.2-desktop
GNOME 3.2.1

When I use the Advanced Settings (gnome-tweak-tool) nothing sticks. For example, under Advanced Settings, if I turn on “Have file manager handle the desktop” and the restart GNOME with Alt+F2/r [enter], the setting is not affected. Likewise, for example, if I select the left-handed mouse button, then Alt+F2/r [enter], it does not affect the setting.

I would appreciate any feedback on how to fix this problem.

Thank you.

Hi
Rather than restart the shell, have you tried to logout, then login?

Hello:

Yes, I have, but there’s another problem which develops. When I logout and log back in, the screen goes all wonky. That is, it does something like a horizontal roll; something like old, televisions used to do. (If that helps at all). When this happens, I have to do warm reboot and log back in. Everything is then fine, but the settings do not get updated to the new values.

Thanks again.

It works for me immediately in fallback mode. I haven’t tried in full mode.
