I have decided to replace Xfce4-power-manager with gnome-power-manager in Lubuntu 12.04 (didn't knew how to disable the tray icon in fact), which I did using synaptic, and now it shows:

enter image description here

But gnome-power-manager is nowhere to be found. Searching for the file, I only see this:

enter image description here

There is only /usr/bin/gnome-power-statistics

Shouldn't be a gnome-power-manager executable and with options that should look like in this question?

gnome-power-manager was a daemon and an executable on gdm. The gnome-power-manager binary is gone and the functionality was moved into gnome-settings-daemon.

Edit since I found a source here.

thnx, tried gnome-settings-daemon it would not work properly in lxde, opening it provided only keyboard layout settings and massed up my lxpanel, so i'm back to xfce4-power-manager – cipricus Nov 23 '12 at 11:52
The only thing I know is that Lubuntu use the xfce4-power-manager, for some reason there is not one for LXDE. – Zignd Nov 23 '12 at 12:20
