xfce power manager on kubuntu
i have kubuntu on a asus eee pc netbook that is running great except for a little issue. when i shut down or restart, xfce power manager doesn't startup. The wind up is i notice that i don't have a battery icon on the task bar and i go to preferences >power manager and it says "xfce power manager is not running" and then i click run and I'm all good.
how do i get this to auto start, i googled this issue and the few pages i found say to go to session & start up, however i don't have those options. Is there a systemctl command that will force this to startup when the OS boots?
