Under Centos 7,
mate-power-manager (from the EPEL repo) keeps crashing. When run manually from the command line, at the time of the crash it throws the error:
ERROR:gpm-kbd-backlight.c:342:gpm_kbd_backlight_on_dbus_signal: code should not be reached
It has been fixed with version 1.18.1 However, that is not available in EPEL. I've tried building it myself, but keep getting prompted for sudo with
authentication is needed to run mate-power-backlight-helper
I really just want
mate-power-manager to keep running (or automatically restart after a crash) so that I don't miss a critical battery alert.
