[gpm] Notification Area proposed enhancement

Hello,
I use PowerManager 2.24.4 on Fedora 10 and would like to propose
enhancement. In properties of PowerManager under "General" Tab there is
"Notification Area" and wouldn't it be nice to add there "Display an
icon when on battery" ?
Cheers

Isn't "Only display an icon when charging or discharging" fine-grained
enough for you? I don't think we want to clutter the dialog with many
different options.

[gpm] how to control low battery notification


I'm using fedora 10 containing 
  gnome-power-manager.x86_64                  2.24.2-2.fc10
It used to pop up a notification when the battery dropped below 30%
and now no longer does.  I don't know what I did to disable this, but
I'd like to enable it again.
In fact, it would be nice to be able to set several such thresholds
for notification.
I don't see any control for this in the preferences.
The doc seems to suggest (I could be misinterpreting) that editing 
 /root/.gconf/apps/gnome-power-manager/notify/%gconf.xml
is the solution, and I've tried that but so far with no effect.
I notice that editing preferences does change neighboring files,
but when I try strace gnome-power-manager I don't see these files
being read.
Before I get too far into trying to read the source (which seems to
be for a newer version than I have installed), it occurs to me that
I should try just asking...
Can someone tell me the solution?
Thanks.

[gpm] Power manager - problem

Hello,

I'm running Mint Linux 5, XFCE 4.2. The following problem also occurs with Mint Linux 6, XFCE 4.4.2 and Mint Linux 5, Gnome.

When I boot a message states that the computer ACER lptp 4052LMi) is running on battery power although plugged to mains power. This suppresses the disk checks and boots the machine with battery power saving configuration. To restore the status quo I have to unplug and replug the mains power supply.

Can anyone suggest a fix for this?

Thank you.

What's the value of the state file in /sys/class/battery/* -- does the
kernel get the value wrong?

[gpm] ambient light sensor and backlit keyboard visual feedbacks

Hello, I have a laptop with a hardware ambient light sensor, and
backlit keyboards. I would like to know if it's possible to add a
visual feedback to gnome power manager, when I hit the hotkeys to
manage them (I would like a notification like the ones which appear
when using the panel brightness hotkeys)

I currently don't know the keycodes.

If this is not the right mailing list, sorry!
