How to install APM on Debian/KDE system


Hi,
I just installed Debian on my Toshibe Portege A100 laptop, and used KDE as window manager. Everything went fine except these things:

1. When I run out of battery, the system doesn't say antyhing. I can't turn on battery monitor on KDE control center, it says your computer doesn't have Linux APM. It does give me link to a HOWTO page, and it says something about recompiling Kernel which I totally don't understand.

2. The system doesn't turn off by itself, I have to push the power button after I ask it to shut down. It does turn off by itself while I'm running Win XP

Can someone help with this problem, thanks alot

Did you try to load the module? Try typing "modprobe apm" as root in a terminal. See if that helps. At least, it should shutdown your computer, I guess ^_^
