It has to do with auto start. If I manually type in command
(apcupsd)from command line. Then click on the icon (gapcmon) it
starts.It also works(Auto starts) when I boot 12.2 instead of 12.3.
I know the ups works as I just experiences a power drop that reset
some of my external digital clocks, but not my computer.
Here what happens when I type commands in your write up.
After getting other errors I decided to reboot my system. On reboot
the APCUPSD started automatically and then the GUI. I will see what
happens tommorrow after I shutdown and restart in AM. If it does not
start I will do the desktop steps.
