comment How can I put my HDMI display into (and out of) power save mode?
At the bottom it says DPMS is disabled. Turn it on: xset +dpms then your commands should work...

Okay. Can you edit your question with the output of xset q?

Do you get an error from xset or does nothing happen? Also what distro? If it doesn't work I would guess ACPI is not compiled into the kernel. As a diagnostic, please post the output of xset q. Thanks.

Hi there. Since this is generic Debian, would you mind if I moved this to Ask Ubuntu or Unix & Linux?

We actually managed to get it working using --root, which I'd somehow overlooked. I'll mark this as the answer, thanks.

PLEASE make sure that the ~/.ssh directory has 700 permissions! Otherwise your security is worthless.

Why would I want to install a package manually if I could just use pacman? Nevertheless, I understand your comment and will amend the question.

I'm guessing there's a database entry somewhere, but I can't seem to find the information that I want.

I thought I had made it pretty obvious that using pacman wasn't viable. Otherwise I would have just used pacman.

comment Can I make pacman aware of packages installed manually?
The reason I can't do this is that I'm attempting to install packages in a mounted Arch image of a different architecture without emulating it. Thus I cannot use pacman.

Qemu static packages don't appear to be in the Arch repositories.

I know how to use Qemu for emulation. Apparently you can use it with chroot, although clearly I cannot work out how.

@finnw In fact all you need to do is type openbox --reconfigure
