18 Programs/Tools interacting with the Powersave Daemon
Currently I know of four clients that make
use of or are based on the powersave daemon functionalities:
It supports switching between schemes, triggering suspend,
shows the current battery level and warns if the battery runs low.
It also offers configuration of X-based power functions such as
DPMS and screensaver and some more.
- The graphical KDE front-end to powersave.
- Works reliable and stable and got extensive testing.
- Perfect for end-users.
KPowersave is currently maintained by Danny Kukawka
A WindowMaker applet that provides basic functionality
such as displaying and switching schemes, cpufreq policy
and issuing suspend requests.
The WMpowersave client is currently maintained by Holger Macht,
- YaST2 Powermanagement Module
Provides configuration of most of the variables in
Only on SUSE right now.
- GKrellm Plugin
A small hack from Stefan Seyfried designed to replace gkrellm's
builtin battery monitor and set / display the cpufreq policy. Can
also set the brightness on supported machines.
