[SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

I had forgotten about this little problem I have but was reminded of it through a different problem (which is now solved, I hope). I am posting it here as it is a separate problem (I think so, at least).

As the subject line states, I have no access to the power manager. It usually should be in the Mate Control center, but it's not. I have upower installed. I thought maybe if I installed mate-power-manager-common then the power manager link would show up in the control center, but it did not. Another thing is after installing this, an error message popped up which unfortunately I did not write down. But it is installed according to Synaptic, along with upower.

Is there a way to check which one is running? Or if any? Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

Ron, what happens if you open the terminal and enter...

mate-power-manager

I hope that's right since I'm unfamiliar with Mate still...

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

I get bash: mate-power-manager: command not found

If I put sudo in front I get: sudo: mate-power-manager: command not found

It doesn't help if I put in mate-power-manager-common either.

EDIT:
I also tried to reinstall it in hopes the same error message would pop up again, but it did not.

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

That means it's not installed.  I have mate-power-manager-common available in jessie.  Should be the same in ASCII.

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

Looks like systemd is a dependency of mate-power-manager. Perhaps that's the issue?

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

I don't see that in Synaptic in the list of dependencies. But then, why wouldn't I see upower's Power Manager in Mate's control center? I know it would show Xfce's power manager if it were installed.

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

In looking at Debian's page, mate-power-manager is a separate package apart from mate-power-manager-common, and it appears to not be available in ASCII.

As mlsmith said, it also shows systemd as a dependency...or consolekit. This is just a guess, but perhaps the Devuan developers are still working on the actual mate-power-manager (?)...I don't know. Sorry Ron.

Here's the answermate-power-manager is banned in ASCII.

AntoFox maintains Mate for Devuan.  He posted this last month.

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

So should I install Xfce's power manager? Or something else?

Another more disturbing question: if Mate's power manager has systemd as a dependency, will the whole Mate desktop one day have it as a dependency?

Re: [SOLVED] [Miyo] Power Manager is missing in my setup

Ron, the xfce4 power manager works on my "miyo mate". If you previously removed it, and if you don't want to install the xfce4-panel along with it...install it with this command...

sudo apt-get install xfce4-power-manager --no-install-recommends

I can't answer your second question. That's a question for AntoFox...the Mate maintainer for Devuan. smile
