I installed gnome-power-manager from Synaptic, hoping to be able to get my eeePC 701 4G to suspend when I close the lid.
It refuses to start its GUI, and gives the following warnings in the terminal:
[jeff@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost jeff]# gnome-power-manager
TI:09:25:49 TH:0x9197418 FI:gpm-main.c FN:main,230
- This program cannot start until you start the dbus session service.
This is usually started automatically in X or gnome startup when you start a new session.
So, what is this "dbus session service", and how can I get it to auto-start?
EDIT: I checked Synaptic, and dbus and e-dbus are both installed. But not started.
