Before upgrading to utopic everything was working quite well just by starting gnome-settings-daemon.

After this upgrade, it turns out you need to start unity-settings-daemon instead.

But unity settings daemon does not fix everything gnome-settings-daemon fixed, for example:

  • Brightness adjustment with libnotify notifications
  • suspend on low power
  • low power warnings

And a few more things.

What do you use with i3 and utopic instead of gnome-settings-daemon?

I installed i3 on a fresh 14.10 just a few days ago and I'm pretty sure I ran `gnome-settings-daemon`, though I remember having some initial trouble. I'll be reinstalling soon, so I'll run into it again. I'll let you know if you don't know more by then already anyway.
