KDE System Tool

Score 90%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5326
Submitted:  Jul 12 2008
Updated:  Feb 1 2009



This page will be no longer updated, just like 4.1 backports, now that 4.2 is out.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!

-- Changelog for the 4.1 branch --

* Another round of critical fixes. Packagers, again, please update as soon as possible.

* Fixes 2 critical bugs in 1.4.0. It's a critical upgrade, packagers, please upgrade as soon as possible

* Yet another backport from trunk

** Now PowerDevil is hosted on KDE FTP **
* Fixed a lot of bugs

 cannot find it after install

 by ademmer1977 on: Aug 30 2008

I compiled it successfully and made an RPM with checkinstall. But after installing the RPM, there is neither an icon in systemsettings, nor a service in services module of systemsettings.

I ran kcminit and even restarted KDE 4.1, but this did change nothing.

What I am supposed to do now?

After the installation everything should work out of the box, so you eventually have a problem in the installation on in your paths. Consider that the only noticeable change you'll see it's a new KCModule in the Advanced tab.

 two requests

i love it

two things are missing:
- when I go over the plasmoid with my mouse I woud like to see current CPU speed

- with right-clicking plasmoid it would be great if there would be an option to select CPU policy/profile

The plasmoid is being discussed on the lists by the time we speak and it's still not ready, though your requests are already planned :)

 Layout issues and a question

 by lbbros on: Sep 2 2008
Score 50%

First of all, thanks for this application! I have been waiting for a KDE4 powermanagement tool.

The "layout issues" I am mentioning in the subject refer to the dialog size of the KCM module, which, when not embedded in systemsettings, is way too large for small screens such as the one of the Eee PC 900 (1024x600) I tested it on.

Also, a question: does Powerdevil obtain information on supported capabilities of the hardware with interaction through Solid alone? If so I have to see why it's not picking up the suspend modes for my Eee.

I'll try my best to reduce its size. Powerdevil does everything through solid, though solid can't recognize your suspend methods, you can verify this by using "solid-powermanagement" shell.

And yes, it's meant to replace kpowersave, its inclusion in kde is being discussed these days.

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.
