Solaar failed for me as reported at: github.com/pwr/Solaar/issues/162. Also it is in my PATH so I can do just solaar -V.

comment What is the difference between Multiverse and Partner sources
1. Can multiverse software be closed source? If not, how and why can non free software be open source? 2. What are "licensing requirements"? An example would be great. 3. Closed source does not imply proprietary? 4. How is proprietary different from non free? 5. Partner software gets support from whom? Enterprises which have contracts with Canonical stating they will provide support? Is this what partners are?
