Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

In Jaunty and previous releases, when you activated the Power Manager plugin in Rhythmbox it wouldn't suspend while listening to music as expected.

In Karmic, this is not happening anymore

Seems similar to the issue described here:


The output available is this:

(rhythmbox:8025): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Failed to invoke org.gnome.PowerManager.Inhibit: Method "Inhibit" with signature "ss" on interface "org.gnome.PowerManager" doesn't exist

Upstream gnome has a patch for this, but they seem unsure about applying it. Maybe Ubuntu can help here, either by refining the patch so that it satisfies upstream, or by servicing the ubuntu user base by applying the patch to the ubuntu packages, so that there are no "bad surprises" when Karmic final is released.

I would really hate to loose this feature, I depend on this to use my laptop as a music player in the public transit.
