I'm trying to get gnome-phone-manager running on Fedora core 3; so far 
without success. Configuration + compilation seems to be OK after the 
std:: namespace patch. After starting the program I get:

$ gnome-phone-manager
** Message: New connection device is (null)
** Message: No device!
** Message: Exiting connect thread
    [ a few seconds delay ]
conn_complete:  status 0x04

but no UI at all, it just sits there. (gnome-bluetooth-mamanger seems to 
work OK out of the box, but it has errors concerning the gconfd API.)

I've been fiddling around for a while, and I have become suspicious 
about the gconfd stuff. After enabling gconf-client debug printout I get

gconf trace: Adding directory '/apps/gnome-phone-manager/prefs'
gconf trace: Adding notify to engine at '/apps/gnome-phone-manager/prefs'
gconf trace: Onelevel preload of '/apps/gnome-phone-manager/prefs'
gconf trace: Caching values in '/apps/gnome-phone-manager/prefs'
gconf trace: Doing remote query for 

However, using gconf-editor I cannot see that the configuration 
directory /apps/gnome-phone-manager'. It just doesn't exist, even if I 
let gconfd shut down after logout. Some time, I cant remember how/when, 
I think I noted that the app looked up a key which had a name like 
"no_UI" (???) and from this decided not to show the UI.

To believe is, however, to not know. The only thing I'm absolutely sure 
of is that I want to see the UI. Any clue out there?
