Power management issues with Trisquel Mini 5.5
I use Trisquel on a low-end netbook. The Gnome edition works fine, although it is a bit slow. The Trisquel Mini edition is significantly faster, but power management is an issue : the LXDE battery indicator gives wrong numbers, and the battery discharges itself completely when suspending the netbook for a while.
I have tried to use gnome-power-manager. The package is indeed installed, but /usr/bin/gnome-power-manager, which I would have liked to launch at startup, does not exist.
I can manually launch xfce4-power-manager, and then a seemingly functioning battery indicator is added to the tray, but I am unable to launch it automatically at startup, by adding @xfce4-power-manager in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart.
Any ideas? Thanks!
Got the gist of it, surprisingly as I don't speak or understand the Spanish language. I guess French and Spanish are close enough so that I can make some sense of what I read :). Thanks!

Replace gnome-power-manager with xfce4-power-manager and your power
management should work. Maybe:
sudo apt-get remove gnome-power-manager
sudo apt-get install xfce-power-manager
Be careful, if the first command proposes to remove half the OS
including X... proceed with caution!

Have you tried using the "~/.config/autostart/" folder ?
Will try tonight. Thanks - will let you know how it goes!
Problem solved :) !
Adding a .desktop file in .config/autostart with the following content does the trick:
Exec=lxterminal --command "xfce4-power-manager"
