I'm trying to script changes in a config file (
/var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla), which boils down to:
[Update already installed software] Identity=unix-group:admin;unix-group:sudo Action=org.debian.apt.upgrade-packages ResultActive=yes [Printer administration] Identity=unix-group:lpadmin;unix-group:admin;unix-group:sudo Action=org.opensuse.cupspkhelper.mechanism.* ResultActive=yes [Disable hibernate by default in upower] Identity=unix-user:* Action=org.freedesktop.upower.hibernate ResultActive=no
I'm trying to set
ResultActive=yes for all blocks that start with
[Disable hibernate. Using sed and regex groups I came up with:
sed -i 's/\(Disable hibernate.*\n.*\n.*\nResultActive\=\)no/\1yes/' /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla
How can I fix my
sed command, to change the appropriate line for the hibernate config blocks?
edit: It seems like I cant get
sed groups with newlines not to work at all.
