Isadora not honoring gnome-power-manager

Postby Kaye on Fri May 21, 2010 11:44 am

Hey everyone,

After uninstalling flashplugin-nonfree, Mint also took out gnome-power-manager (not sure why they would be bound, but w/e). Not a problem I thought, I'll just reinstall. So I reinstalled with no problems, but now the settings in GPM aren't being honored by Mint. No matter how I change the settings it always puts the computer to sleep after ~3 minutes of inactivity rather than the 30 I have it set for (additionally I only have it set to sleep the monitor and not the system, but that's ignored as well).

Anyone know what could cause this or how I can fix it?

Thanks,
Kaye

Strange, uninstalling flashplugin doesn't remove power manager here (isadora i386), so not sure what's going on there kaye. Have you tried making the settings default on the power manager dialog, or changing the values in gconf-editor? Maybe a bug?

It seemed very strange to me when it happened as well. I've tried every tweak possible using GPM, but I haven't tried gconf yet. I'll give that a go and report back.

EDIT: Sorry! It wasn't removing flash that removed GPM, it was removing notify-osd (I like to apply a workaround to move the bubble).
