Replacement for gnome-power-cmd script

Asked by Danilo Piazzalunga on 2009-10-15

The gnome-power-cmd script has been removed from gnome-power-manager 2.28. Therefore, it is no longer available on Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala).

Where do I find a replacement for this script, that is, a method to perform logout/reboot/shutdown from the command line?

[re-opening by jeff covey:]

is there no answer for this? my ~/bin/hibernate script suddenly stopped working after upgrading to koala.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

At last, I have found an answer:

* Suspend and Hibernate are handled by DeviceKit-power

** Suspend
dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Power /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Power org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Power.Suspend

** HIbernate
dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Power /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Power org.freedesktop.DeviceKit.Power.Hibernate

* Logout, Reboot and Shutdown are handled by gnome-session

** Logout
dbus-send --session --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.gnome.SessionManager /org/gnome/SessionManager org.gnome.SessionManager.Logout uint32:1

** Reboot
dbus-send --session --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.gnome.SessionManager /org/gnome/SessionManager org.gnome.SessionManager.RequestReboot

** Shutdown
dbus-send --session --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.gnome.SessionManager /org/gnome/SessionManager org.gnome.SessionManager.RequestShutdown

** If some application is inhibiting logout/reboot/shutdown, no action will be performed and gnome-session will show a confirmation dialog.

And now the question is solved.
