    boot up in terminal (press ctrl+alt+f3 at the blank screen) or press escape when grub loads up so you can boot in safe mode, or boot in terminal.

    If you can manage to get a terminal use:

    sudo apt-get remove powermgmt-base
    sudo apt-get install powermgmt-base

    Make sure that you actually have an internet connection here. so you can get the package again. do this with iwconfig or ping http://www.google.com

    Re: gnome power manager not installed correctly

    I came across your thread while searching for the solution to a similar problem, and thought I would share what I've learned (or at least my theory.)

    The system crashed, and gconf didn't close out properly. It has a function that locks critical files, etc for the use of the individual user. The crash caused them to remain locked, and therefore inaccessible. ctrl-alt-1 brings up a terminal, ctrl-alt-7 brings up a gnome (windowed) session. To remedy this, try typing
    Code:
     mv ~/.gconfd/saved_state saved_state.old
    into your terminal and reboot, or perhaps its only necessary to ctrl-alt-backspace and log in again. It was either this that fixed it, or "dpkg-reconfigure gconf<tab><tab>" and reconfiguring everything that started with gconf. either way, these steps allowed me to log in again.

    best of luck,
    Pete

    Re: gnome power manager not installed correctly

    During a recent update on 10.04, there was an unknown problem and the system did a hard drive check before rebooting correctly. My login (Administrator) worked correctly, but my Son's login came up with the Gnome power manager not installed correctly error leaving just the background and nothing working. Here is the fix.

    Type CTRL-ALT-F1 to get to a prompt.
    login with the user's name and password of the affected account
    Type the following phrase

    mv .gconfd/saved_state saved_state.old

    REBOOT and login to the affected account. Problem should be fixed.

    Re: gnome power manager not installed correctly

    I have the same error and I confirm cigtoxdoc's assessment. I tried the mv solution below, unfortunately I get
    Code:
    mv: cannot stat `.gconfd/saved_state': No such file or directory
    Any suggestions?

    Re: gnome power manager not installed correctly

    Well I tried a few thing and it turns out that my HDD is totally full which is super duper weird as I was running on 5 GB out of 13 GB...

    I did the update from 9.1 to 10.04 a month ago or so.. could this have anything to do with this?

    Same problem here. Except that I know I had 55 GB free, and for some reason the disk was full. This produced the gnome power manager login error.

    To check your disk, login to the terminal and type
    Code:
    df
    I deleted some stuff so I can log in normally now. But I still have no idea what suddenly took all the disk space or how to find it.

    Well, I also did an upgrade to 10.04 and have the Gnomer Power Manager not configured problem. I have tried to boot to CD ROM but it will not recognize it. I tried to use the ESC to get to a recovery and then use the prompt but then the keyboard input only is successful on about 2/3 of the letter inputs.

    It is totally frustrating. I am about to try to go back to a windows environment but that didn't seem be working with the inability to boot from CD. It's been over a month and all I have tried is futile.

    HELP!
