PowerDevil

   1.4.2  

KDE System Tool

Score 90%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x

Submitted:  Jul 12 2008

Description:

--- ATTENTION ---

This page will be no longer updated, just like 4.1 backports, now that 4.2 is out. PowerDevil is now in kdebase module, so from 4.2 on there is no need to download/install it as a separate application. Please use bugs.kde.org for bug reports/feature requests/whatsoever. Thanks for testing and trying PowerDevil in 4.1, we have a rock solid powermanager in 4.2 mostly thanks to you!

PowerDevil is an utility for KDE4 for Laptop Powermanagement. It consists of a Daemon (a KDED module), a KCModule to configure it, and will feature a Plasmoid soon.

With PowerDevil you can set up preferences for lid Closing, Brightness, CPU scaling, Idle time, both when connected to AC and when on Battery. It is built upon Solid, and it's very lightweight and won't overkill your system resources. If you missed KLaptop or KPowersave, this might be the tool you were looking for.

PowerDevil is part of kdebase from 4.2 on. This means it's included in kde core releases and you no longer need to compile it as an external application.

Though, I keep a branch and a tarball updated for people on KDE4.1. Enjoy it!

 make error (no rule)

Hi,
I'd tried to compile the lasted PowerDevil's version (1.4.2) and, after runing cmake and make, I have a compilation error :
make[2]: *** Pas de règle pour fabriquer la cible « /usr/local/share/dbus-1/interfaces/org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.xml », nécessaire pour « daemon/screensaver_interface.cpp ». Arrêt.
(no rule to create target /usr/local/share/dbus-1/interfaces/org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.xml)
It's me or there is an error into the generated makefile ?
thanks to answers.

does powerdevil support the UPS as a battery on a desktop?

I am running KDE 4.1.96 and powerdevil is running (in service manager) but there is no battery found. The battery applet says "Battery: not present".

Just wanna mention that upsmon, knutclient and gnome-power-manager do see my battery.

Can someone please help me with this? One strange thing is that although the window, that pops up when I click on the battery icon in panel, says, Battery not present, when I go into capabilities, it says it has two batteries present. The second one is wireless mouse (as shown in gnome-power-manager).

hald seems to be running fine and has no problem finding the UPS.

root 8700 8659 0 21:14 ? 00:00:00 828 264 19 S hald-addon-hid- hald-addon-hid-ups: listening on /dev/usb/hiddev0

What exactly is needed for powerdevil to use my UPS as battery so that I can set some rules for shutdown/suspend in case of power failure?

Thanks,
devsk

I have the same problem as you, with my APC UPS.

GNOME's applet and apcupsd-gui normally see UPS but Battery monitor plasmoid do NOT.
PowerDevil reports battery well.

Only what you can do is to change NUT's or apcupsd's config scripts and put them commands to send d-bus messages to powerdevil.

 some problems

Hi .. I'm using powerdevil from kubuntu interpid.. Powerdevil can't control the screen brightness.. Also there are times where powerdevil detected the battery power level was 'zero percent' than goes back to the original level after several seconds.. these symptom happens even when I was plug-in to the power adapter.

 name of program

> PowerDevil
And what about more neutral name? Why so horrible names? And what is the purpose of giving such names?

Honestly, I'm always embarrassed with these daemons, devils and so on.
Can't you people give normal, neutral names reflecting the real purpose of your soft?

Basically because of lack of culture.
Not much time ago technical names were taken from Greek and Latin words (audiovisual, telephone, cybernetic, microscope, etc, etc); that was the scientific way. Since scientists and technicians don't study rudiments of classic languages applied to their disciplines, and since people don't read real literature, their classical culture sucks and can't create neologisms which make sense and are easily translatable, therefore we have arbitrary names and definitions which are just understood for their inventors.
But don't dare to say anything against this, they will stone you to death, XD.

PowerDevil is just a play on the power-tool brand, afaik.
It's sometimes dangerous to read to much meaning into naming, without knowing enough about the popular culture that one lives in :p

I've just finished emerging kde-4.2 on gentoo. powerdevil plasmoid is ok, I can change monitor brightness.
However when I try to hibernate or suspend - there is no actions at all.
Where can look for errors? What are the logs powerdevil use?
does it uses kded4 daemon?
Thanks in advance

 Daemon does not equal demon.

A daemon has absolutely nothing to do with religion or the occult. It's pronounced "day-mun." Personally I'm embarrassed for anyone who implants loaded meanings into the words they read.

For example: A dust devil has nothing to do with religion. It's a tiny cyclone in the desert dust. And just so everyone knows, I've been going by lesserdevil for 12 years.

Sorry to correct you, but "daemon", "demon", "daimon", whatever you want to transcript "δαιμόν" (daimón) is indeed related to religion/superstition: a deity.
Interestingly it's etymologically related to democracy, and epidemic.

A different matter is its use in computer-related world, of course even those who don't know a word of programming know that it isn't that the forces of Evil Darkness have taken over our computers, XD.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
