I just tried getXuser() and getXconsole() from acpi-support's power-funcs and
both work without any problem if the X session was started with startx. There
is is special logic in there to cope with this case. Also I don't really
understand what you mean with "when the system is not running an X session".
What does not work then? I thought you were talking about some acpi-support
failures but cannot find any, so please give details. It does not matter
whether or not consolekit works then because it is only used to find the X
