View Full Version : After F9 to F10 problems with gnome-powermanager

27th November 2008, 01:29 PM

yesterday I upgraded from F9 to F10 on my Laptop Aspire 5920G. After solving some expected problems with Xorg (input devices, nvidia-drivers) everythings seems o.k., except for the gnome-powermanager :confused:.

There is no change of the power scheme (ondemand, powersaving) if I go from AC power to Battery. In the preferences I can't even set a default scheme anymore. Also I get no notifications if the defined thresholds for low/critical power are reached.

The only thing that works is change the power scheme via cpu-frequency applet. So
theoretically the schemes are available.

So are they any big changes for the power settings made in F10? (Under F9 everything worked fine :))

Thx in advance,

I checked the Keys in the Configuration Editor:

For all the keys under "/apps/gnome-power-manager/cpufreq"

/apps/gnome-power-manager/cpufreq/policy_ac (ondemand)
/apps/gnome-power-manager/cpufreq/policy_battery (powersave)

it states "This key has no schema" and there are no long or short descriptions available as
for the other keys.

Executing "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors
" show all my wanted governors "powersave ondemand userspace performance "

Very strange :mad:

Last update :confused::

In the Ubuntu for their lastes release (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=971578) I found
maybe the solution. This setting (CPU Speed Policy) is gone with newer gnome-power-manager. Although it is still present in the help pages of the powermanager ....
