I tried following the directions to use gconf-editor and set /app/metacity/general with no luck. Is there something I'm missing?

tuxfan: You might want to try out "gnome-tweak-tool", sloppy focusing can be enabled in its "Windows" tab. This is easier/safer than setting random keys in gconf-editor.

tjw344: sorry for not commenting directly, but apparently I haven't yet earned enough mojo to do so... anyway: you're right that dconf or rather gsettings is the preferred way now, but some older code still uses gconf (it is used for the window management mode).

@Nils: Thanks for correcting me. I saw some stuff for desktop session, interface, and shell and assumed it would be in there now. I also saw a gconf setting under plugins that can be turned on and off. I figured wrong. Nils, I have a post on here about how to properly set up a linux resource container. If you know anyone are anything that could help me I would be greatful. Just take a look at my post under lxc or resource containter. Thanks.

get rid of gconf-editor and use dconf-editor. dconf is the now preferred method.
