Irrelevant.  If the config tools are missing I cannot use it.

That division between /apps, /desktop and /system really should go. It's not
your fault, but upstream should clean up that mess.

Anyhow, there's no /system/gstreamer/0.8/ section available thru gconf-editor,
thus no key to edit.  gconftool-2 is not an end-user tool either.  

Between gstreamer-properties and gconf-editor, one of them should one work.  right
now, neighter one allows changing thta setting.

There is no gconf-editor key available.    See above.
