I was using simple backup config to backup home to an external drive and it was working fine for the past week or so and today after the backup the computer was restarted and I am unable to log on. I get an error message saying. "the configuration defaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly "
I did some googling and the problem is that / is full. I have been trying for the past three hours to delete some space on / so that I can log on. I used ctr-alt-f1 and I can log on there but whatever command I use to delete the root trash it fails. I get an error message saying /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ is not a file or directory.
delete root trash so I can log onto this computer. I have used every variant of sudo rm -r /root/.local/share/Trash/files/ that I could find including one using Chmod. I have already tried the commands found in this tutorial [URL]

error message says "configuration defaults for GNOME power manager has not been installed correctly";however, my laptop was working fine this morning. Now it does not even let me sign-in. I was attempting to install a back-up software using the "Accessories" button icon and the computer stopped working. Now it won't let me even sign-in.I use Ubuntu 10.04 and had done an update successfully (or so I thought), but what do I do now?
This message is coming to you from my desktop computer while the problem exists on the Dell laptop. Its model number is Inspiron 9300.
My ubuntu isnt working after i write my password and press enter it does nothig but gives a massage ''the configuration defaults for GNOME power manager have not been installed correctly'' the recovery console doesnt work too(same problem) the problem appeared after i installed bittorent client called smth starting with 'd'.
My monitor kept powering down after 20 minutes so I installed Gnome-power-manager by yum so that I could change the settings. After the installation and every time I try to use it I get a message saying:
The configuration defaults for Gnome Power Manager have not installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator
I'm now unable to effect a change in the power settings and the display keeps turning off.
1) Is someone able to post their config file from a working F12 install? I believe it's /etc/dbus-1/system.d/gnome-power-manager.conf but not certain as I don't have one ;-)
2) ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-power-manager/%gconf.xml is empty - is it empty for someone with a working install?
3) how I can change the power settings without the gui - I'm googling on this point and will post the answer as and when I find it.
Code: [ecvej@desktop ~]$ uname -r 22.214.171.124-127.fc12.x86_64 Edit: In case it is relevant, this is the contents of my /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system/%gconf-tree.xml
I'm running 10/11 on a toshiba satellite. i kinda got tired of loosing stuff because i mis-timed the battery discharge, so some months ago i pulled the battery and just ran on the adapter (back ground, i don't know if it's nothing, related to, or caused the problem).
monday morning fired her up - boom got the power "gnome manager not installed correctly"message. tuesday, googled gnome then power then... you get the route, and found Fedoraforum.org, read the stuff, did the yum remove...., did the yum install.... everthing seemed cool. 2nd reboot she stopped at the "f/infinity/balloon" kinda logo.
i went to verbose startup and - all sorts of services were failing; the word deprecate(d, ing, tion) came up a lot "device full..." came up a fair bit as well. when i tried the "yum remove" approach again i got [rpmdb: write: 0x1fd48b0, 8192: No space left on device]. similarily on "yum install" same kinda stuff - deprecation, BaseExpection, deprecated..... kinda long winded. up till now (13 years)
I just tried to start up Ubuntu and got the following error message. "The configuration deaults for gnome power manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator."
I then get a black screen, with the menu bar at the bottom, and a choice of who to log in as. No matter who I choose I get the same error message and then it takes me back to the same screen. It also gives me the choice of what session to use but again, no matter what I choose it just takes me back to the error message and the same screen. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on an Eeepc 901. I have the Netbook version installed, but I was using the desktop session. The last time my computer worked I ran update manager and it updated some Intel driver i think. Sorry I can't remember the exact details. Not sure if this is something to do with it.
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.
I noticed that in Fedora 15 Beta when you choose a minimal install then add ONLY the defaults of the "GNOME Desktop" package, you will get this error: gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 has a required package:
When I look for gnome-desktop3-3.0.1-2.fc15.x86_64 it is not on any installation menu list. I prefer gnome, but installed KDE and that worked. Any ideas of getting gnome to work?
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.
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.
I use Slackware 13.0 with the 126.96.36.199 kernel, and I use GnomeSlackbuild.I tried to get help on their discussion group, but I didn't get any.I'm trying to build gnome-power-manager 2.30, because it uses the new upower interface (so it seems). I have GTK+ 2.18.9.
I've tried to research my issue as best I can before posting here. System is 10.4 32bit on Acer Aspire 5720. Here's the chain of events: First noticed Firefox couldn't create a file under /tmp to download Virtualbox. Hm. Try to reload Firefox, it won't restart; freezes with one tab open, blank with transparent square in top-left, not a chrome loaded if I remember right. Both latest stable and Dev Preview. Maybe a reboot will work...Normal Ubuntu loading screen appears, but before anything else a message box appears near top right of screen: Quote:
Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. contact your computer administrator. Shortly after, an abnormally styled pop-up appears asking me for my default keyring password - seemingly skipping the account login step. When I put in the keyring and click 'Ok', the button stays pressed down and the system hangs. Have to switch off. Boot into recovery mode, root with networking. I read somewhere that "dpkg --configure -a" followed by "apt-get -f install" might help. However, "dpkg --configure -a" fails thusly:
I have upgraded my EeePC from 9.10 to 10.04 and got now a black screen after I can login. On the right upper corner, I find an error message:

On the bottom bar I selected English / USA / GNOME for Language / Keyboard and Session Above is the best I ever could come, but most of the time I only can type in the password, and it stops there, without bottom bar (language/keyboard/session), but with the Error.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 in a virtual box but it has defaulted to Gnome rather than Unity. I've never used Linux before (had to get it for my software paper at uni) so really have no idea what I'm doing. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Ubuntu has been very good for us, fast, small foot print, But just yesterday it decided not to boot up. It gets to the login screen, and shows a warning... "Install problem, the Gnome power management configuration installed incorrectly, contact your administrator" What can I do to free this up?
When trying to open YaST Software Manager, it downloads/refreshes repository information, but then, just when the loading bar indicates that the manager is about to open, a warning window pops up which says: "There was an error in the repository initialization." The program continues to open, but only packages that have already been installed are visible.
Deleted my ati drivers accidently during a botched upgrade. Have been trying to fix the problem from things I read on here, made a thread but can't get online to execute it.Found my install dvd tried running repair and in the process deleted my windows partition(anyway to get that back?) and still no previous ati drivers or gnome installed.
When I boot up i see SUSE LINUX not opensuse... no grub So my question is how do I install ati drivers from the dvd and how do I install gnome or kde from install dvd? did i royally mess up and basically now just completely reinstall opensuse 11.2 completely? and if so can I recover files from my deleted windows partition and previous opensuse partition?
I downloaded Adobe Air, both the rpm and the .bin versions. First I tried the rpm, it went through the motions of installing but just disappeared. then I tied the .bin, got tot the installer, accepted the license, entered my root password, but it stopped installing with "an error occurred. Adobe AIR could not be installed. Install either Gnome Keyring or KDE KWallet before installing Adobe AIR". I opened Kwallet and tried again, but to no avail. I am running OS11.4 64 bit. What can I do to get this thing working?
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:
I installed the Elegant Gnome theme/package and I uninstalled it after about a week of use. Even after reverting back to the ambiance theme, or other themes, I've noticed that some elements of the Elegant Gnome theme have remained (e.g. the panel color and icons in Chrome or after right clicking and the system font).Is there a way to restore the Gnome defaults or Ubuntu system defaults so that everything is as it should be?

I just installed opensuse 11.4 64 bit. Compiz and everything was working fine on my ati card (mobility 2600) with the default radeon drivers. I added the gnome 3 stable repo, updated fine. But when I rebooted I get booted into the fallback with no 3d effects and it says "gnome 3 failed to load" What gives? The drivers were working fine with full acceleration. I know gnome 3 works on this card, I tested it on the fedora live cd just fine.
I cannot access ubuntu anymore. I have ubuntu 10.04LTS Lucid Lynx. Ubuntu always prompts me to do updates. On the last update, the system wasn't able to find 4 files online. So it aborted the update and reverted to the previous state. On the next startup I could still access ubuntu. But the startup after that I got the inlog-screen (with username and password), and even with the correct username and password that's as far as it goes. In the lower right corner it says:
Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly contact your administrator. What can I do to access ubuntu again? I can, when I reboot, start up in recovery mode (but I have no clue what to do with the prompt). I can also start up older 'kernels': kernel 2.6.32-30-generic, 2.6.32-29-generic, 2.6.32-28-generic, 2.6.32-24-generic. Each of them also has a recovery mode. Not sure if this is useful at all though. Laptop: AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile Technology MT-37, 1.99 GHz, 1,00 GB RAM.
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.
