UPower command line tool

Examples (TL;DR)


upower [--dump] [--enumerate] [--monitor-detail] [--monitor] [--show-info] [--version] [--help]


upower is a simple command line client for the UPower(7) daemon. TODO: not fully documented.



Connect to the UPower daemon and print a line every time a power source is added, removed or changed.


Like --monitor but prints the full details of the power source whenever an event happens.
