Re: [gpm] power history graph is not available in gnome

That problem solved by copying glib-gettext.m4 to /usr/share/aclocal...=)

I continued to install the latest version of gnome-power-manager via svn and
after installing a lot of *dev packages I run make install. Things went

mahmood magma:~$ gnome-power-manager --version
Version 2.24.2

Is it installed or not? Do you have any idea?:-(
