How to make the configuration saved in .gconf/desktop/gnome/screen work?

I found Fedora9's gnome-display-properties using unstable APIs and saving the configuration in .gnome2/monitors.xml. However, this scheme can't work when multiple screens. My screen 1 is for usbvga. How to make the configuration saved in .gconf/desktop/gnome/screen work?

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking ?

Usually, display properties, other than the default(s) are dictated by the driver you have installed, your hardware and the content of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Then again I could be completely wrong.

I am developing a usbvga driver that supports RANDR. Normally a usbvga occupies screen 1.
"gnome-display-properties" of ver 2.22 can manipulate the resolutions of all screens in the run time, but it cannot remember the settings after restarting X. It saved the setting in .gconf/desktop/gnome/screen

In FC9, the default gnome-display-properties has been modified and does not work when multiple screens. Only screen 0 can be adjusted, and it can keep the setting. It saved the setting in .gnome2/monitors.xml. It is the same with FC10 that equipped gnome-display-properties of ver 2.24.

I want to know how to enable the gconf's setting instead of that in .gnome2

The answer is "gnome-control-center" needs a corresponding "gnome-settings-daemon." If gnome-display-property of ver 2.22 is applied, gnome-settings-daemon of ver 2.22 is required to keep the configuration after restarting.
