Ubuntu :: GNOME Power Config And Installation Errors

Oct 12, 2010

A couple of days ago on my Fujitsu Laptop which was nearing its end (in about 2 more years, I'll have to send it to the scrap pile) I had a GNOME Power Configuration error. This is the story of my struggles and my thread of cries for help: I was booting after installing an update for Maverick Meerkat, and I got a message during the load screen that said: INSTALLATION PROBLEM: The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please Contact your system administrator.

So I dropped into GRUB During my 5th boot (while trying to boot once more in hopes it was just a boot error) and I selected the latest/updated version of Ubuntu, but I dropped into the recovery mode version so I could attempt some commands to try and fix it. Then, I dropped into the root terminal to attempt more commands to avoid specifying my networking device, and typing sudo before the commands. I got on my alternate computer and searched my problem. I installed a whole bunch of crappy commands that didn't do anything, and ended up purging GNOME completely and doing:

Ubuntu :: Login - Gnome Power Manager Config?

Sep 10, 2010

After running a backup script, but previously deleting old downloads and files from the rubbish bin, I then logged out. When logging back in later I got the Ubuntu loading screen as normal, but then instead of the Ubuntu login I got another login screen that I have not seen before; black background with the login screen in the middle.

I tried to login in, but all I got was an error message saying 'Install problem - The configuration defaults for Gnome power manager have not been installed correctly. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and had a stable system.

Things were running fine until GNOME misbehaved;

Fedora :: Installed Gnome-power-manager, And After Config It For "never Suspend"

Aug 28, 2010

I have a FC11 over AMD Sempron 2400+ 512Mb RAM and Im using it as 24 hours server, but after a few hours of work it makes something like suspend (don't response to network, clock freeze, etc. but screen works) till I touch mouse or keyboard.

I think this is a configuration item, but I'd searching about pm-utils and I found how config suspend and hibernate states, but nothing about what thing order a suspend every few hours.

I'd installed gnome-power-manager, and after config it for "never suspend", only change is, maybe, a bit more time before automatic suspend.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Broke GUI Login - Gnome Power Management

Sep 1, 2011

Here's the error I get:
"The configuration has not installed correctly for Gnome power management".
Updated my 11.04 install via the update manager last night. When I turned my computer on today it wouldn't boot into the normal gui desktop. Where my normal login screen usually appears a different login screen appears with my username. I login. Screen flickers black for a few seconds and a page with a ton of text shows up for a fraction of a second ( too short of a time to read a single word). more flickering. Then I am returned to the slightly different login screen once again with the error. I tried booting into failsafeX gui mode. Same issue.

CentOS 5 :: Hdb: Timeout Errors After Power Off Only

May 4, 2010

The problems I was having earlier: [URL]seemed to be solved.

I was not getting any error messages after restart. I should have powered down fully, but did not think that it would make a difference. :(

The same issue is again occurring, but after shutdown ONLY and only on the first boot. After the first boot, a system restart will not cause any error messages. (I have rebooted at least ten or twenty times to make sure)

But after a system shutdown, the first boot hangs up and I get the

"Red Hat nash version starting hdb: timeout waiting for DMA hdb: drive not ready for command"

errors five or six times before each boot. Also the system boots very slowly the first time.

I used the getinfo.sh all command and posted the info to the suggested site here: [URL]

Is it possible this could be a hardware issue? This is an old salvaged HDD. Ive changed everything I c an think of in the BIOS with no results.

I have used the hdparm -d /dev/hdb command and verified that dma is not being used on initial boot or after a shutoff but IS being used after a reboot...

here are the HDD settings
multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 0 (default 16-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)

Debian Hardware :: ACPI Power Button Config Ignored

Sep 28, 2015

I have an Asus EEE Box EB1012 running Debian Jessie (headless with no GUI installed).

I'm trying to get the power button on the front of the machine to put the computer in suspend.

If I run pm-suspend from the command line, it suspends correctly and also recovers correctly by pressing the hardware power button.

Originally, pressing the power button (while running) would shut the computer down.

The acpi power button event script was set to run the command "/sbin/shutdown -h -P now".

I changed it to "/usr/sbin/pm-suspend", and restarted the acpi service/rebooted the computer (I tried both), but the power button still cause the computer to shut down.

I also tried setting no action (empty string) for the power button event, but still the power button caused shutdown.

Is the acpi system getting bypassed somehow? Is there another system to configure instead?

Fedora :: Errors - Alerts Booting F13 - Default Daemons Config ?

Dec 22, 2010

I receive these alerts when booting.

What do they means?

Why some daemons find for config on a non-existent file (/etc/modprobe.conf)?

Maybe because these daemons was disabled and reenabled?



And hostname command output is "localhost.localdomain".

Where I can find daemons' default setting list?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Power Manager Broken?

Apr 25, 2010

I am having issues with Gnome Power Manager. My wife and I have identical computers, with Linux Mint 8 installed on both. My Linux Mint 8 is a fresh install, whereas her's was an upgrade. Anyway, when I click suspend or hibernate nothing happens, not even an error. On my wife's computer this works just fine. sudo pm-hibernate, sudo pm-suspend, and sudo /etc/acpi/hibernate.sh do absolutely nothing.

Ubuntu :: Install Gnome Power Manager

May 3, 2010

On my login-screen, there is a message saying that the configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not been installed correctly. I can still log in and work normally, but it seems to me that the system is pretty slow (which might or might not be because of this). It's been there for a while when I used version 9.10, but didn't disappear when I updated to 10.04. I searched for other threads with this problem, and found:

1) This one:URL...saying that it could be because the root drive was full, and said that I could run "sudo apt-get clean" to try to solve it. This didn't work, and it doesn't look like I'm low on space, anyway. Plus I can log in normally, so it doesn't look like the same problem.

2) This one: URL....advises me to run "sudo dpkg --configure -a", which seems to have worked for other people, but it didn't help me--when I restart, I still get the same error message.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Power Manager No Actions ?

May 9, 2010

Gnome Power Manager has been giving me problems for a while now, all of which I have at least found a workaround, (sudo gnome-power-manager) with the exception of this one.

Gnome power manager will not make my computer suspend or hibernate on low or critically low battery.

I've installed acpi, configured laptop-mode, and edited the values for GPM in gconf-editor to suspend at 10% battery.

Nothing seems to work.

Ubuntu :: Register Thumbnailer In Gnome Config?

Sep 30, 2010

I try to implement thumbnails for files from a Wine program in order to integrate it better in Ubuntu. The Program is Sketchup which creates *.skp files in a binary format, but I found a ruby script that can extract the thumbnail (*.png). Now I wanted to register it in the gnome configuration according to the following instruction:[URL].. It works perfect if I execute the script manually (package ruby installed, script is executable):

ruby ~/.wine/skp-thumbnailer.rb /home/user/test.skp /home/user/test.png Creates successfully a thumbnail test.png from the file test.skp. With the following commands, I registered the script, but it doesn't create thumbnails automatically:
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application@wine-extension-skp/enable --type=bool true
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/thumbnailers/application@wine-extension-skp/command --type=string "ruby ~/.wine/skp-thumbnailer.rb %i %o"

Now my question is how to find the mistake. Do I need to copy the script into /usr/bin ? Apart from that, would it be possible to create it as a shell script (without ruby requirement)? If I knew how to translate it into .sh, I would prefer that.

Ubuntu :: No Login To Gnome - Power Manager Failed

Jul 26, 2010

System: Ubuntu 9.10, upgraded from previous versions
Architecture:64 bit

Occurance of the problem: After using GParted to move unallocated space to a ntfs-filesystem. Yep. I did it again. No oops this time, for I have no clue why this error appeared and why I cant get to my desktop. No recent updates that couldve borked the system.Lately I have had to work quite a bit with some Windows-only programs, and I found myself out of harddisk space pretty soon, as for the last year or two, I worked almost exclusively with Ubuntu and only had a minimally sized partition set up for Windows. I needed room. No problem, I thought, I will start up GParted, move some of the unallocated space to the NTFS partition and be done with it. I have performed tasks like that before, so no problem should occur.

After rebooting I got to the grub menu. All options were there. Looks nice. Except for the fact that Windows did not want to start, some MSDK (sorry, did not write down the name) file or whatever was missing. (I heard this is a Vista problem and the file connected to the error does not even exist on any XP system). Worse than XP not starting was the error message I got from my login screen.

"The configuration defaults for gnome-power-manager have not been loaded. Please contact your administrator."

So I did. I talked to myself and had to admit to the user that I did not have a solution at hand. User upset, administrator too. (They are no longer talking to each other.) Login is accepted, but after that nothing. Just a black screen with a mouse-pointer that can be moved around. Nada mas. Before getting to the login screen, there was something else that drew my attention, but again, I did not know what it meant. The error-message:

fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16 is udevd [527]: NAME: "%k" is superfluous and breaks kernel supplied names, please move it from /etc/udev/rules.d/51-hso-udev.rules:124
* stopping the Firestarter firewall...
9.10: clean, 467963/3055616 files, 8323370/12205383 blocks


SuperGrub. It allowed me to boot, but thats it. No further steps taken, if only because SuperGrub does not support the EXT4 filesystem (yet?).I have heard people were able to get to their desktop after receiving this error by using a root account they had previously created. I dont have one, so that would not work.So, I did the three finger salute, stopped the gdm from the terminal, moved gconfd to somewhere else, hoping a new file would be created and the problem would be solved with that, but no. Restarted gdm, it worked but the problem remained.

Ok. Perhaps a reinstall of the GDM might work, I thought. Well, it might, but the problem is I have no internet connection and the usual way I connect my laptop is through phone-tethering. Not having a desktop will not allow me to make a connection.So, sudo apt-get --reinstall install gnome-power-manager did not work as an active connection is required. Also I dont know if that is going to solve the problem.So now I am in the dark. I have booted up a live CD, mounted my HD partition in order to check my /root/.Xauthority, but I could not even find the file.

I refuse to believe there is a serious problem with my Ubuntu install. As far as I can see, there is a problem with some config-files but the system itself looks OK. Reinstalling is preferably not an option, as I love my install and have been working with it for a long time now, with lots of user data on it as well. Also, I have not seperated /HOME, which makes a reinstall a bit of a drag. I am certain there is an easy fix somewhere, someway, but I would need some advice from someone more knowledgable than I am. The only thing I could think of is to find a way to reinstall gnome-power-manager without an active connection. I can download the .deb file with some other device than my laptop but I would not know how to add that to /etc/apt/sources.list. Also, I kind of doubt that the problem lies within a faulty power-manager.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Gnome-power-manager Brightness Without Hal?

Sep 5, 2010

I'm running 2.6.35 on a macbook Air. Since Hal is being deprecated I got rid of it but now I cannot control brightness with the keyboard.Looking at the code on gnome-power-manager, if it doesn't find hal it defaults to xrandr, but I couldn't find a way of controlling brightness with xrandr. Also, I don't see any keybindings on XF86MonBrightness{Down,UP} with gnome-keybindings-properties.I'm loading mactel's nvidia_bl module which creates /sys/class/backlight/nvidia_backlight and from there I can just adjust brightness by editing the corresponding file.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Settings Per Monitor Config?

Mar 31, 2011

I have a maverick box plugged into two monitors, using the open source radeon driver and randr. Each monitor has a top and bottom gnome panel, with various widgets in each. There is no /etc/xorg.conf. The Problem: If I 1) remove both monitors to plug the box into my HDTV, or 2) connect to the X server remotely from a laptop, the panels all get shoved onto the one display. Do you have any advice on how I might specify different gnome panel 'profiles' for the different uses of this computer?

Fedora :: Possible Leftover Gnome Config From 14?

May 25, 2011

I just installed Fedora 15 while keeping my old /home partition from F14, all other partitions were formated When I had firefox 4 installed on fedora 14 I needed to change the default application for my browser from
firefox %s to firefox4 %s to be able to open URL from emails because I had two instances of firefox. Now in fedora 15 I cannot open Email links again. I think it may be because for some reason gnome still knows about the "firefox4" I had installed earlier because I have the option to open files with it when I select "open with another application" when I right click on one.I do get an error that it can not find that application though when I try.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-power-manager Patch 9.10 On Dell Mini 10v?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm running Karmic on a Dell Mini 10v (Intel Atom) netbook, generally with very few problems and I've been happy with it. Recently I've had problems with suspend and wake when I close / open the lid - wicd no longer finding any networks, password prompt no longer appears, that sort of thing. A few days ago an icon popped up in the panel which appeared to do nothing, but mousing over it provided the following message:

"Session active, not inhibited, screen idle. If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor. [URL]..Following the link, the blog of Richard Hughes appears to quite carefully describe the issue and then provides a patch (or two). However, being rather a n00b I have no idea what to do with either of the blocks of code he supplies - "man patch" in my terminal brings up "no manual entry for patch".
