Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the Atareao team has created an app called Power Commands, that enables the users to easily turn off, reboot, suspend, hibernate, log out and block, via the Unity Dash. The latest version available is Power Commands 1.6, which has been recently released. While it was initially available only for Ubuntu 14.04, it received support for Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 also.
In this article I will show you how to install Power Commands 1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Power Commands 0.1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the power-commands package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install power-commands
Optional, to remove power-commands, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove power-commands
Or, if you want to uninstall power-commands, disable the recently added PPA and downgrade all the packages that got updated via the PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:atareao/atareao
