Has anyone had success installing Richcomm PowerManager USB UPS
monitoring software? (It's the software that came with my UPS).
The install script assumes a RedHat-type file structure and displays
errors on not finding /etc/rc.d/rc.local in my Linux-Mint system; after
exiting the subsequent configuration script, it then shows "Init Usb
Failed!". This despite the fact that lsusb shows the UPS up as "Bus 002
Device 004: ID 0925:1234 Lakeview Research", and
disconnecting/reconnecting the UPS USB cable shows up in dmesg as:
[ 7764.788092] usb 2-3: USB disconnect, device number 3
[ 7779.004071] usb 2-3: new low-speed USB device number 4 using ohci_hcd
[ 7779.233251] generic-usb 0003:0925:1234.0004: hiddev0,hidraw2: USB HID
v1.00 Device [\xffffffd0\xffffff89\xffffff89 UPS USB MON V1.4] on
[ 7780.006016] usb 2-3: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usbhid while
'richcomm_usb' sets config #1
which all looks OK to my (admittedly untrained) eye.
I'm running LMDE 13 x64 KDE.
I have tried installing NUT, but it's somewhat beyond me, I'm afraid.
Help would be appreciated.
