Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I'm running Slackware64 13.1.
When I change the bright of my screen, xfce power manager show a info bar.
But now it disappear, when I run xfce4-power-manager from a terminal I get this info:
(xfce4-power-manager:8001): xfce4-power-manager-WARNING **: No convenient cpu governors found on the system, cpu frequency control will be disabled
(xfce4-power-manager:8001): xfce4-power-manager-DEBUG: Size Changed 200 icon=xfpm-ac-adapter
(xfce4-power-manager:8001): xfce4-power-manager-WARNING **: could not map keysym 1008ffa8 to keycode
I think I discover the problem, I have a Ati graphic card, and when I press the Fn Keys for brightness and do dmesg, I see output from fglrx, so I think my graphic card drivers are catching the signals.
I cannot get the power-manager to appear.
It shows up on the bar, when you click it a menu appears with power-manager at the top, so I click that, and nothing.
Attempting to start it from the menus does nothing.
What is this thing supposed to do ??
My Sempron appears to not have freq/power levels (according to CPUID)
(I had to insert an extra print stmt into the kernel to find that out),
but you know "Cool n' Quiet", so it may have something else.
Does the power-manager just abandon you when there are no abilities on the CPU ??
I have the governers compiled in to the kernel, but they do not seem to be doing anything that I can actually verify.
