Hi Stefano,

I am neither familiar with Kubuntu nor dconf-service. But from the sounds of it, it's not KDE specific, so it might affect other Ubuntu users.

But if you are considering taking backup, usually your home dir is all that is required. You can take whole SSD image if paranoid, though it should not be difficult since it's only 32GB.

Others might have a better idea.
