I installed Kpowersave from the AUR.
when I start it as user I get this error:
$ kpowersave 22:07:10:537: kpowersave::kpowersave 22:07:10:540: pDaemon::pdaemon 22:07:10:540: dbusPowersaveConnection::dbusPowersaveConnection 22:07:10:540: dbusPowersaveConnection::initDBUS 22:07:10:564: User is not permitted to connect to daemon 22:07:10:564: ERROR: Can't connect to DBUS
a added the user to the groups dbus,power and daemon, but I still get the same error.
How can I give the user the permission to connect to DBUS?
starting kpowersave as root works fine, but I want to run it as user...
did you restart you session?
groups only get updated after a new session is created
yes, I did.
$groups users abs power dbus daemon slocate
maybe it has something to do with the acpid daemon taking control of the events:
Today I booted into my arch and it works!
The user don't need to be in groups dbus,daemon,power,hal ...
$ groups slocate users michael abs
Maybe the daemons (hal,dbus,powersave) or (some of) the init-scripts had to be restarted after installation of kpowersave?? I don't know...
Anyway, the reboot did it.
good for u
hmm, after another reboot I get the same problem :?
20:28:09:772: User is not permitted to connect to daemon 20:28:09:772: ERROR: Can't connect to DBUS
I've made no changes!
Reooting now doesn't solve it...
I hope I solved it now. The user have to be in the "power" group.
I found the info in
