Default xfce4-power-manager

I'm trying to get xfce4-power-manager to work in 5.4, but it is not. Can't get it onto the xfce panel, either.

My dmesg is here:

Anyone else use this/have it working? I'm open to other power manager solutions, as well.

I don't run Xfce4 any more but I can suggest some things to look at. OpenPorts.se can provide some specific information on the port. In particular

Revision 1.1.1.1 (vendor branch): download - view: text, markup, annotated - select for diffs
Mon May 23 19:18:15 2011 UTC (2 years, 8 months ago) by landry
Branches: landry
CVS tags: landry_20110523, OPENBSD_5_0_BASE, OPENBSD_5_0
Diff to: previous 1.1: preferred, coloured
Changes since revision 1.1: +0 -0 lines
Import xfce4-power-manager 1.0.10:

This software is a power manager for the Xfce desktop, and relies on
UPower to gather the power sources on the computer. In addition,
xfce4-power-manager provides a set of freedesktop-compliant DBus
interfaces to inform other applications about current power level so
that they can adjust their power consumption.

ok ajacoutot@
Upower and dbus are necessary and I do know that dbus has some setup info in
/usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes/.

The ports "PLIST" (package list) also provides 3 bin commands
Quote:
@comment $OpenBSD: PLIST,v 1.4 2012/06/15 08:30:25 ajacoutot Exp $
@bin bin/xfce4-power-information
@bin bin/xfce4-power-manager
@bin bin/xfce4-power-manager-settings
Running these commands in the xfce terminal should generate error messages.

Also pertinent would be acpi(4), acpithinkpad(4), apm(4) and apmctl(4)

Excellent, thank you! I will look into this closer when I get home this evening.

After some research, I'm ditching xfce4-power-manager. I did some reading up on the suspend/resume features/functions, and I'm utilizing those instead. Much better solution! Now, to read up on battery monitoring.
