Bug Description

A setting dialog should be added with the following options:
- Save History
- Limit of Items
- Clipboard support enable (Copy, Primary Selection)
- Hotkeys

All those settings should be stored with gconf.

We might consider using Glade ( to create the user interface.

I've implemented a ConfigurationManager which communicates with the gconf daemon. Currently only the two options use_clipboard and use_primary are implemented.

Have you had any success with the settings user interface?

I'll start working on that. Also, I'l thinking that the settings dialog would be simple enough to implement in GTK+/Vala, rather than having to use Glade. I'll see how that goes.

P.S. I have just a few more finals exams left for the semester. I'll be able to devote a bit more time to the project.

Created basic preferences dialog with glade respectively GtkBuilder.

Lots needs to be done on this settings dialog when it comes to usability, but I'd say it should be alright for a first release.
