acpi-support 0.139 source package in Ubuntu


acpi-support (0.139) precise; urgency=low

  * lib/power-funcs: adjust getXuser and getXconsole to use consolekit
    instead of ps/who to identify the "foreground" session and the owner
    of a given X session, since lightdm is currently failing to record this
    information in utmp.  Also, add headers for each of these functions
    documenting how they're supposed to work, since it's completely
    non-obvious and some of the scripts already in acpi-support are using
    them wrong.  Thanks to Ayan George <email address hidden> for the
    preliminary patch.  LP: #933626, #893271.
  * fix wrong use of getXconsole where getXuser is needed.

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.
