after installing gconf on an fresh install of archlinux the and trying to start gconftool the following message came up to my face:
/opt/gnome/bin/gconftool-2: error while loading shared libraries: libxml2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I think that means some dependencies are broken somehow. after installing also libxml2 the problem has gone.
please use the bug tracker to report this. the gnome maintainers are not regulars here so the information will be slowed just reporting it here.
I am not your friend
ok, i will do so,
