Use profiles from GNOME Terminal

Registered by Sergey "Shnatsel" Davidoff on 2010-09-12

It would be great if Natilus Terminal could use profiles from GNOME terminal. The console look and feel will be consistent all around GNOME and users won't need to set up two different terminals separately.

I see some problems:
    1. It adds a dependency to GConf
    2. If the user has more than one profile, what profile choose ?
    3. Some property of gnome-terminal are not available in Nautilus Terminal (like background picture, transparency,...)

[shnatsel 2010-09-17]
    1. Nautilus already depends on GConf. So what?
    2. Always use the current one
    3. We'll have to bear with it

   1. Dependency to python-gconf
   2. -
   3. -
   → I'll may add this feature in the next version

   1. You can avoid python-gconf by using gconftool-2 executable (the one used in bash), but it will work a bit slower

(?)
