gnome-power-manager problems after installing NetworkManager

Bug #48526 reported by J0Sb31R on 2006-06-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


after installing NetworkManager gnome-power-manager does not seem to work correctly anymore after a clean boot..

The battery status etc works fine, but the actions don't, when closing the lid nothing happens. When i kill and restart gnome-power-manager for 1 or 2 times everything works fine, i'm guessing it has something to do with dbus/hal but i don't have any expertise in this sort of things.

When i uninstall NetworkManager the program just works without killing and restarting it first.

I'm using latest ubuntu 6.06 on an Acer Aspire 1641WLMi laptop.

Thanks :)

I've got the same problem : when I close the laptop it stops fine and when I open it up a moment later, more than one time over two, the network (WiFi) is deactivated.
When I do a sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart, messages tells me the device is currently busy etc.

I have to close / open / close / open until the network is up by itself.

I uninstalled network-manager and now, I don't have this kind of problem after closing the laptop.

Is this still a problem on Hardy?

Can you look at and give us some information??

lshal -m > lshal.log.txt (and attach the file to this bug)
gconftool --recursive-list /apps/gnome-power-manager > gpm.gconf.values.txt

Could you look at and make a capture log?

Which wifi chipset are you using?
