Ticket #13499 (closed Feature Requests: Committed)
Power Management via logind support

|Component:||Linux specific features||Version:||GIT|
|Severity:||Normal||Keywords:||arch linux systemd logind power shutdown reboot|
Power Management (Reboot, Shutdown, Suspend etc.) currently does not work on Arch Linux systems since Arch Linux recently dropped support for ConsoleKit, which has been unmaintained for quite some time .
ConsoleKit has been dropped in favor of systemd's logind , which btw also provides interfaces to suspend or hibernate the machine, so the upower dependency may not be required anymore for distributions which use logind.
This will become a problem on other distributions as well when they drop ConsoleKit in favor of logind. I already mentioned this problem on the forums .
- Type changed from Bugs to Feature Requests
- Summary changed from Power Management doesn't work on Arch Linux (missing logind support) to Power Management via logind support
