How the hell do I delete a GConf key?

For a single key:
Code:
gconftool-2 --unset /key/path/here/foo
For a full subtree, use the '--recursive--unset' option instead.

Hope that helps.

Sir, PFC Swartzendruber reports the /apps/compiz subtree still present and defiantly laughing.

Every GConf key tree has an associated schema, which is a listing of the default key/value pairs for the application. These are ususally installed alongside the package and can be removed by uninstalling the associated schema. Not sure where it is on Gentoo, but it's probably similar:
Code:
# export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=$(gconftool-2 --get-default-source)
# gconftool-2 --makefile-uninstall-rule /etc/gconf/schemas/compiz.schemas
Hope that helps.
