> Public bug reported:
> Binary package hint: nut
> Up to date Kubuntu Karmic is in use.
> Recently I have tried to install nut and faced with these problems:
> 1. hal starts  'hald-addon-hid-ups' process which is not compatible with
> nut. To prevent the starting I have added the file:
this is not needed. the call to detach the kernel driver will eject the hal

> 2. I have added nut and ups-monitor services to default runlevels, but
> nothing starts. To force nut be usable I manually start it via:
> $ sudo upsdrvctl start
> $ sudo upsd
read /usr/share/doc/nut/README.Debian.gz
you will see that you have forgotten to edit /etc/nut/nut.conf -> MODE
I've modified the init script to use this, and will push other distros in
this way too.

Only at this point KNutClient is able to connect the service.

just a matter of time.

I'll wait for your ack to close the bug.

FYI, I'm working (will be working) on the NUT Control Center (probably not
the definitive name), which will be a complete config / client UI.
