Bug Description

It turns out that the gnome AT startup functionality fails if AT-SPI is not enables, so the gconf value:

/desktop/gnome/accessibility/startup/exec_ats [onboard]

fails unless you also have:

/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true

I'm attaching a patch that fixes this.

Adds the line

 gct -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true

AT-SPI is not strictly needed for onboard, but IMO this is the simplest fix for now. We should work out something more general with gnome upstream.

onBoard still does not start on the Live CD.

The line
gct -s -t list --list-type=string /desktop/gnome/accessibility/startup/exec_ats gok

must be changed to
gct -s -t list --list-type=string /desktop/gnome/accessibility/startup/exec_ats [onboard]

in the script 30accessibility

  * Copy access=m2 accessibility changes into the corresponding ubiquity
    hook.
  * Remove spurious quoting from accessibility script.
  * Clear console-setup/layoutcode and console-setup/variantcode if they
    aren't supplied on the command line.

  * scripts/casper-bottom/35fix_language_selector:
    - run fontconfig-voodoo if available to make sure that we have
      optimal fontconfig settings for the CJK languages (lp: #49334)

  [ Henrik Nilsen Omma ]
  * Fix a few accessibility items that were out of date, changing
    gnopernicus -> orca and gok -> onboard (the gok entry was missing some
    brackets as well; patch from Malone #58836, closes: Malone #65861).
