no display in list window

    After scanning the rom directory, the front-end doesn't display any games. It turned out that none of the columns were selected in the preferences. This isn't the default behaviour is it?

      No, the default behavior is to display the Favorite and Title columns.
      Was this a fresh installation or an upgrade from a previous version?

      It was a fresh install onto an Ubuntu 7.04 system.

      It's all fine now, but perhaps it didn't insert a default configuration into gconf during the install process for some reason (I'm guessing GVA uses gconf as there's no .gnome-video-arcade directory in my home directory?).
      If I understand correctly, Ubuntu has had some problems with gconf in the past.

      Anyway, That's just speculation. I thought submitting this thread could help someone else who may experience the same problem.

      BTW, great work with GVA.

        Yes, GNOME Video Arcade uses GConf.  It stores its keys under /apps/gnome-video-arcade.

        But you raise a good point: GVA should make sure that *something* gets displayed at startup, even if the GConf list of visible columns is empty.  I'll fix that for the next release.

        Glad to hear you like it.  :)
