xfce4-power-manager-settings - Settings dialog for the Xfce 4 Power manager


xfce4-power-manager-settings [options]


xfce4-power-manager-settings is a utility that comes with the Xfce4 power manager to access/change its configuration. It is a separate program that uses xfconf to load/save settings according to the user’s choices. xfce4-power-manager-settings requires the Xfce4 power manager to be running because it connects to it via DBus and gets information about which settings should and should not be displayed; for example, the xfce4-power-manager-settings utility will not show the LCD brightness settings if no device was detected by the running instance of the Xfce4 power manager.
You can run xfce4-power-manager-settings from the command line without specifying any extra arguments.



Have the power manager print debug messages to the console; useful if you have to send in a bug report.

--socket-id=SOCKET ID

Settings manager socket, used when xfce4-power-manager-settings is embedded in the settings manager.

--device-id=UpDevice object path
