Hello everyone! I have a problem with my UPS (Mustek Powermust 1000) software winpower! I have installed the linux version of winpower and it should look like this. It shows only my computer name but i can`t see the information above. I am using it with the usb cable! Can you please help me to make it work? On windows works fine! Thanks!
You need to add more detail for anyone to assist you to get it running.
You should also read http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/UPS-HOWTO/
and Linux.com :: Adding a UPS to a desktop Linux machine and do a gogle search for others.
I have looked at your vendors s/w, if your running it correctly (assuming it does indeed work) there should be a USB associated with the UPS device. Mine looks like this (run "lsusb" to get your details).
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 051d:0002 American Power Conversion Uninterruptable Power Supply.
Also just do "dmesg >/tmp/dmesg-output.txt" and append a copy of /tmp/dmesg-output.txt file - this will assist further.

i`ve tried to configure the NUT:

port = /dev/hiddev0
