acpi-support 0.142 source package in Ubuntu


acpi-support (0.142) saucy; urgency=low

  * Drop events/lidbtn, Handled by logind now.
  * Drop events/asus-rotate and, this has been handled by
    gnome-settings-daemon and friends for ages.
  * Drop events/sleepbtn,,, also handled by g-s-d and
  * Drop events/panasonic-lockbtn,, lib/screenblank: This only
    applies to xscreensaver and radeontool (dcop has ceased to exist a long
    time ago), and only for a few machines.
  * Drop,, and events using it:
    Handled by desktop.
  * lib/power-funcs: Drop getXuser() and getXconsole(): No remaining users,
    and these used ConsoleKit. Drop consolekit dependency.
  * Drop and events/{battery,ac}: upower has done this for a long
    time, and we don't support anything else.
  * Drop events/tosh-hibernate and Handled by desktops. Drop
    pm-utils dependency.
  * Drop acpi_fakekey, associated build system, and scripts/events that use
    it. This is supposed to work with proper kernel drivers or udev keymap
    overrides, most of it is probably obsolete, and the rest should be fixed
  * Drop lib/{device,policy}-funcs, not used by anything any more.
  * Drop debian/init.d, upower automatically does that. Drop lib/power-funcs,
    init script was the last consumer.
  * Drop obsolete dependencies: x11-xserver-utils, hdparm, lsb-base,
    powermgmt-base, laptop-detect, dmidecode.
  * debian/{pre,post}inst: Remove transitional code for versions before 140,
    i. e. the last LTS.
  * debian/preinst: Clean up the gazillion obsolete conffiles which were
    removed above.

acpi-support: scripts for handling many ACPI events

 This package contains scripts to react to various ACPI events. It only
 includes scripts for events that can be supported with some level of
 safety cross platform.
 It is able to:
  * Detect loss and gain of AC power, lid closure, and the press of a
    number of specific buttons (on Asus, IBM, Lenovo, Panasonic, Sony
    and Toshiba laptops).
  * Suspend, hibernate and resume the computer, with workarounds for
    hardware that needs it.
  * On some laptops, set screen brightness.
