This is the same issue as documented in: affecting Ubuntu which as since been closed.

Changes made within the Remmina preferences dialog are not being saved. This applies to both global and connection specific preferences.

Linux computer1 4.1.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 3 21:30:37 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux
GNOME Shell 3.16.3
Remmina version 1.1.2 - Installed from the official Arch repositories.
Machine attempting to RDP to: Windows 7 64-bit host.

Steps to reproduce:

Install remmina:

1) sudo pacman -S remmina
2) Open remmina and click on tool symbol - tool tip reads "Open the preferences dialog"
3) Select the RDP tab --> make changes --> close out of the Window
4) Return to the tab and you will notice the settings have reverted back to the original defaults.

It is important to note that the preferences for the individual sessions do appear to save (right-click on session and select edit) however they do not actually do anything eventhough set.

This task depends upon

Correction compiling the latest version from source did in fact fix the problem:

Will it be possible to bring Remmina version 1.2.0-rcgit.3 to the Arch repository?
