Power Management not working

Post by dlindyds » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:54 pm

The last time I installed updates through update manager, Cinnamon updated and after it finished the power management in the settings doesn't work. When you click the icon nothing happens.

Same problem with my laptop. I installed the mate power management app and now I have back my power management at least until the developers will solve the problem.

Please try to open it from the terminal via the command cinnamon-settings power to see what error if any is produced.

Also report back output of inxi -Fxz

A hunch this will fix it (possibly needing a log off and log back on afterwards - sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME

Also for me it doesn't work. My cinnamon-settings power output is:

Re: Power Management not working

Thanks,

I've just fired up LMDE in a virtualbox install and I can reproduce the issue there having updated to Cinnamon 4.0.9 - I note the power applet can't get the device status either. It wasn't an issue prior to the update and interestingly it's not an issue in Mint 19.1 with the same Cinnamon version in another virtualbox.

It looks like the version of upower in LMDE (which is different to the version in main edition) is returning a number for the device state when the code in the 4.0.9 power settings module is expecting a string - something like 'charging'. The mismatch is causing a crash.

Could you both post the output of these commands? I'll raise a bug report and link it back to this thread.

Code: Select all

upower -e

Code: Select all

upower -d

Thanks.

Not knowing how long this will take for a fix to roll-out if you need to review settings that you would normally access via the Power settings module and don't want to install the mate power management app you can access the settings using the gui app dconf-editor.

apt install dconf-editor

Got the same thing here. For alternative, I just used XFCE4 Power Manager. But is it safe to remove the cinnamon-power-settings?
5 years using Linux Mint, it's feels like my own neighbourhood.

Confirmed that works in the vbox environment as-well.

I also needed the updated upower for the power applet to provide a battery state in it's pop-up menu

...UPower 0.99.4 specifically has another extra annoying issue when ran with kernels 4.11+...
I stumbled upon such under Mint 18.x Mate, but that shouldn't really matter.
The result of such is going in a loop consuming all cpu's resources as soon someone tries to peek in to Processor's statistics,
although i think some desktops got patched to...simply report nothing instead.
From inxis above & smurphos's log, i see LMDE currently comes with 4.9.x, thought it worths mentioning though,
in case someone with LMDE updates his/her kernel to a newer revision at some point.

I have an older desk top computer with LDME 3 Mint Cinnamon that I just upgraded from LDME 2
Installing the first package, libupower-glib3, fixed the Power Management issue I had. Thank you very much!
The second package mentioned, gir1.2-upowerglib-1.0, was already installed on my system.

I was trying to adjust my power setting because my desktop cannot wake up with mouse or key board after I am away for a while.
I had sleep and hibernate settings disabled but that did not prevent the issue.
I will see if adjusting the power settings helps. I am just happy to get the Power Management functioning again.
Thanks.
Edit: As a side note since I upgraded the libupower-glib3 package the issue I was having with the boot process stalling
before it would get to the login splash screen has gone away also. Boot process is back to normal.

Same here, guys.

This is results of "cinnamon-settings power" command:

Code: Select all

$ cinnamon-settings power
True
Using pam module (python3-pampy)
Loading Power module
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.py", line 619, in <module>

    details = UPowerGlib.Device.state_to_string(state)
TypeError: Expected a UPowerGlib.DeviceState, but got int

Because of that, I can't change the time to turn off the display, of time to sleep/hibernate. No power control.

And this is my system details - nothing changed in last 3 or 4 years, still the same laptop with exactly the same hardware. Working perfectly.

Nope. Still broke. Does not bode well for LMDE that this bug has not been fixed in Months.

hmmm. i did not catch that when i ran lmde3. maybe i am glad i went to debian 9.8. no issues so far at all. i still am hopeful that mint can have a really nice stable lmde version. i am most hopeful. this is my preferred mint at this time.
