Hello, thanks, and sorry for the delay in getting back. I am running the 
script and have move the comment from one D= line to the other. I am, 
however, seeing some errors written to the console. They are from line 
64-65 of the script.

Regarding line 64, I have no /usr/sbin/ups* and suspect the proper 
location on my Ubuntu install is /sbin/ups*. Is this possible? Here I 
have upsd and 9 other files.

Regarding line 65, I also have and no /etc/ups/*. I would have expected 
that second location might have been driven by the D variable. Is that 
what it should be instead of hard-coded to /etc/ups which, as you point 
out, is the appropriate location for Ubuntu? this is where nut.conf and 
5 other files are located.

Once I get this straight, I will re-run and post the results.
