Let me be more Debian specific.  I have been playing with apcupsd and
on my RedHat box, when the power goes out, the apccontrol script broadcasts a 
message on the KDE desktop using Kwrited.  I can't get this functionality  to 
work on Debian.  Both boxes are using apcupsd 3.8.5.  How can I get Debian to 
do the same?   Not a big deal really....just trying to learn something new....

Thanks,  Andy
