Tripp Lite PowerAlert works in Manjaro


Not surprising, it uses Java.
It’s easy, download the Fedora RPM. Extract it, I right clicked it, and selected Extract to folder, made a new folder.
Then copy everything in the folder to the root of your drive, sudo cp -R * /, run that in the folder you extracted it to.
Then make a service file for systemd.

[Unit]
Description=pald
[Service]
Type=simple
ExecStart=/var/tripplite/poweralert/engine/pald
Restart=on-failure
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

I named it pald.service, and put it in /lib/systemd/, then made a symlink to the /etc/systemd/system folder. And I should of put it in /lib/systemd/system. Command is for if you put it in /lib/systemd/system. It doesn’t really matter where you put it, you can put it in /etc/systemd/system.

sudo ln -s /lib/systemd/system/pald.service /etc/systemd/system

Then reload systemd and enable it.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable --now pald

To run the console, run pal_console.sh.

/var/tripplite/poweralert/console/pal_console.sh

Also, there’s probably open source software that’s better. Linux reads the UPS fine.
Now if only DisplayCAL would load my profile on login.
