sudo apt-get install nut
Then edit the configuration files, first /etc/nut/nut.conf based on your configuration:
Then edit /etc/nut/ups.conf based on your UPS device:
[apc] driver = usbhid-ups port = auto
Start the driver with:
sudo upsdrvctrl start
I received an error that it can’t claim USB device. To fix this, I changed the group of the UPS device to but using the following command after identifying the USB bus and device numbers using lsusb command:
sudo chown root:nut /dev/bus/usb/xxx/yyy
Where xxx is the bus and yyy is the device found with the previous command.
Once that was done, I ran the following and it was working:
sudo upsdrvctrl start sudo apsd
Then running apsc apc shows all the good details.
