PowerDevil

   1.4.2  

KDE System Tool

Score 90%
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5219
Submitted:  Jul 12 2008
Updated:  Feb 1 2009

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This page will be no longer updated, just like 4.1 backports, now that 4.2 is out.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

Where can I make a suggestion? I would like to send a "wishlist" for using global keys and profiles.

Thank you.

 Error compiling Powerdevil

Score 50%

When trying to compile powerdevil, i'm having this error :

[ 88%] Building CXX object workspace/ksysguard/gui/CMakeFiles/kdeinit_ksysguard.dir/SensorDisplayLib/SensorLoggerDlg.o
/home/loacoon/Documents/Downloads/SVN/KDE4/KDE/kdebase/workspace/powerdevil/daemon/PowerDevilDaemon.cpp: In member function ‘void PowerDevilDaemon::restoreDefaultProfiles()’:
/home/loacoon/Documents/Downloads/SVN/KDE4/KDE/kdebase/workspace/powerdevil/daemon/PowerDevilDaemon.cpp:1295: error: ‘DATA_DIRECTORY’ was not declared in this scope

It's happening for a long time now so I'm reporting it.

It should not happen, since kdebase compilation happens correctly on the dashboard and for all distros, so maybe your environment is somehow corrupted

That's possible since after erasing everything (sources and compilations), and recompiling from scratch, it worked again.
Sorry to have bothered you.

 PowerTop integration

Another item on the wishlist: Would it be possible to somehow integrate PowerTop into the upcomming Plasmoid? That would be great!

I don't know how this could be done, though if you're keen on it you could open a wishlist ticket on bugs.kde.org

 PowerDevil manual

Hello,

PowerDevil will be the follower of kpowersave, right?

How to use PowerDevil?

Is there a website for PowerDevil?
If not I would start a page for it in Userbase (http://userbase.kde.org/)
What do you think?

There is user documentation for the KCModule, though I will surely write on userbase as soon as I have more time.

Send the docs to me.
I can start the page and I am really curious about PowerDevil :-)

Cheers

 screen off on lid close

 
 by brauliobo on: Nov 30 2008
 
Score 50%

kpowersave did something interesting, in fact, the only thing i miss on powerdevil
when the lid closes, if turned the screen off, maybe running 'xset dpms force off'

maybe also a option to set the cpu frequency policy, independly from the profile.

thank you and congrats for this great applet!

I second that. I just tried to find such an option in PowerDevil but I couldn't. This is really important, as currently locking the screen after closing the lid doesn't do any power reduction at all.

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.
