Re: pbbuttonsd new problems

Having gtkpbbuttons running seemed to be a parameter for me, but were not always true.

BTW the most annoying fact about this pbbuttonsd is that when pbbuttonsd
crashes there's no way to get it up and running again without rebooting
the machine. "/etc/init.d/pbbuttonsd stop" doesn't work and after
manually -9-killing pbbuttonsd there's no way to start it again since it
complaints that another daemong is running even it that's not the case,
are there any hiddent pid/lock files I'm not aware of?

Exactly the same happens to me. Defunct processes that tried to suspend the computer are viewable with ps -A, but have never been able to kill them: I had to reboot.

Another detail, which may be helpful, is that sometimes while shutting
down the machine after the pbbuttonsd crash while trying to put the
machine to sleep, the laptop enter the sleep just before the kernel
"power down" message. Then when I wake up the laptop the shutdown
procedure completes actually switching off the machine.

Again, that also happened to me, but only when rebooting due to a crash. I mean, when halting or rebooting the computer with no bad behaviour from pbbuttonsd, then everything works fine always.

Anyway, I am now running pbbuttonsd 0.6.2-1, and the strange behaviours seem to have disappeared. Still checking, though.
