It is a
"battery monitoring and management for laptops using KDE
This package contains utilities to monitor batteries and configure
power management, for laptops, from within KDE."

Hi Jean-Paul and everyone else. I do not want klaptopdaemon. You are right I do not have a laptop but whenever I try "apt-get -f install" as suggested this is what I get.
Here is a session as an example:
#apt-get install apt
Reading package lists...done
building dependency tree...done
apt is already newest version
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kdeutils:Depends:klaptopdaemon (>=4: but is not going to be installed.
E:unmetdependency. Try "apt-get -f install with no packages (or specify a solution)
When I do so I come back to the same message.
Anyway. I managed to do "#tasksel install desktop" and did install a whole bunch of stuff. However when I do "startx" I get:
Skipping "usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_xform.0":No symbol found
Skipping "usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libGLcore.a:m_debug_vertex.0":No symbol found
Skipping "usr/X11R6/lib/modules/fonts/libspeedo.a:spencode.0":No symbol found
(EE)xf86OpenSerial:Cannot open device /dev/input/mice
     No such device
(EE)Configured mouse:Cannot open input device
(EE)PreInit failed for input device "Configured Mouse"
No core pointer

Fatal server error:
failed to initialized core devices
I have tried "xf86conf" I don't know how many times with a little variation here and there. I have "vi /etc/X11/XF86Conf" but I still get the same message whenever I try "startx".
Any clue anyone?

Now you can have a huge leap forward in email: get the new Yahoo! Mail.
