From your log it seems you're using gtk3 vcl:


gtk3 depends on colord that depends on dconf. So it should be covered.

Ouch, I see the problem. There's no colord installed, there's colord-mini instead which is a custom build without polkit and dconf dependencies. And it works well like that apparently. If I replace colord-mini with extra/colord, that brings dconf in.

Looks like dconf is a direct dependency for something that's usually satisfied via colord. Anyway, I don't think may people use custom colord builds.

This resolves the bug I think, feel free to close it.
