    i'm running debian and i'd like to hand lid events. i'm making changes to the configuration files namely i changed the value for:

    POWERSAVE_EVENT_BUTTON_LID_CLOSED

    and i added my custom script to /usr/lib/powersave/scripts but the change doesn't take. in fact the original value was "screensaver" and after changing it, and rebooting is still does a blank screen.

    for all information i find says modify /etc/sysconfig/powersave/events my system lacks /etc/sysconfig and the powersave configurations are in /etc/powersave.

    basically i feel like the daemon has can not read the configuration and therefor sets everything to the default value.

      Please note that if kpowersave is running, it cares about screenlocking.

      If powersaved could not read the configuration, it definitely would complain in /var/log/messages.

      We know that the documentation still contains some hardcoded paths and we are currently working on removing all those occurences. We also currently working on a general documentation cleanup.

      Please try to use the example event script /usr/share/doc/packages/powersave/contrib/example_event_script (or wherever it got installed) as a template in case of a wrong script. If this does not help, please post your custom event script.
