I do not like this zeitgeist thingy. Because it is neither possible to (easily) configure it to shut up, nor is it possible to (easily) remove it without breaking other things.
Unfortunately, the useful editor "gedit" won't install without it. Apparently it has a built-in zeitgeist plugin.
So, my question is: is it possible to install gedit without this zeitgeist thing?
Manual configuration is not what I'm looking for – I have 30+ users (remotely connected) – should all users need to do this configuration tuning manually?
How does one start System Settings from a remote terminal at all?
Is it possible to disable this zeitgeist from one place for all users once and forever?
