      [ Troy Sankey ]
      *, events/asus-keyboard-backlight-{up,down}:

  • 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 (0.138) natty; urgency=low
      * drop sony-* event handlers, which are also now superseded by a kernel
        input device; and drop the sound button action scripts, of which the sony
        events were the last users.  LP: #676685.
