The "Power" settings in the Cinnamon Control Center still crashes due to an incompatibility with the new upower 0.99 API. This is the error:

$ cinnamon-settings power
Python module

Loading Power module
/usr/bin/python2: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/cinnamon-control-center-1/panels/ undefined symbol: up_client_get_can_hibernate

For some reason, it appears that users that are running this applet...">
...are not seeing this bug. But users running the standard applet and users with no power applet at all can't use the Power settings due to this bug.
This task depends upon

Please re-open, because  FS#40193  is for a specific patch, marked as IMPLEMENTED, but more work besides that patch is needed to fix the Cinnamon Control Center.

It's an upstream task, but I'll check this problem. Anyway, Cinnamon's upower support is still broken, because cinnamon-settings-daemon is still not ported to upower-1 yet, and it's not an easy task.

And now we have two bugs open for the same thing.
