Installing NUT for the OpenUPS

$sudo aptitude install nut Add the following to /etc/nut/ups.conf: [openups] driver = usbhid-ups port = auto desc = "OpenUPS" And comment out the line maxretry = 3. Try if it works: $ sudo upsdrvctl start

Then, edit /etc/nut/nut.conf such that the last line reads

MODE=standalone

Finally reboot and run

\$ sudo upsc openups@localhost

This should display information about the connected UPS. Check the device.model parameter and make sure that it is OPEN-UPS
