I'm trying to write a script that will toggle power manager settings as mentioned above. What I think should work is
xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /dpms-enabled -T
but this just returns
Property "/dpms-enabled" does not exist on channel "xfce4-power-manager".
even though running
xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -l -v
/xfce4-power-manager/dpms-enabled true /xfce4-power-manager/dpms-on-ac-off 25 /xfce4-power-manager/dpms-on-ac-sleep 20 /xfce4-power-manager/general-notification false /xfce4-power-manager/inactivity-on-ac 40 /xfce4-power-manager/lock-screen-suspend-hibernate false /xfce4-power-manager/power-button-action 3 /xfce4-power-manager/show-tray-icon 3 /xfce4-power-manager/spin-down-on-ac true
It seems that
xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -p /xfce4-power-manager/dpms-enabled -T
works, though properties for other channels do not require that longer path. Possible bug? I'll mark this as solved.
