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This page will be no longer updated, just like 4.1 backports, now that 4.2 is out.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

I have released a new tarball, since last one had a major bug that caused crash on startup.

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.
