Source: gnome-power-manager
Version: 2.32.0-2
Severity: minor


Here is what I get when using `reportbug gnome-power-manager':

Gathering additional data, this may take a while...
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 53: lshal: not found
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 63: hal-find-by-capability: not found
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 66: hal-find-by-capability: not found
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 69: hal-find-by-capability: not found
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 72: hal-find-by-capability: not found
/usr/share/gnome-power-manager/gnome-power-bugreport: 75: lshal: not found
The package bug script /usr/share/bug/gnome-power-manager/script exited with an error status (return code = 256). Do you still want to file a report? [y|N|q|?]?

While it doesn't prevent the bug to be reported correctly, it might mislead
users who don't have hal installed.

Making g-p-m depend on hal is not a solution, I guess the script should
simply be modified to not raise error when hal isn't installed.
