I was wondering if somebody already programmed a GUI for the wonderful TLP power-management application?
From https://github.com/linrunner/TLP/issues/129#issuecomment-98478154, the main author of TLP has recommended TLPUI, which is a GTK GUI written in Python. Do note that this is beta software, so bugs are to be expected.
You first would need to get version 0.9-1 of
tlp via the TLP PPA since the version of
tlp in the offical repos is only 0.8-1 and the GUI app needs at least version 0.9:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tlp
Then, according to the installation instructions at TLPUI's GitHub repo:
Download a zip file of the repo at https://github.com/d4nj1/TLPUI/archive/master.zip
Extract the zip file and run
Alternatively, you can just use
git to clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/d4nj1/TLPUI.git cd TLPUI python3 tlpui.py
git pull or
git fetch followed by
git merge periodically to update your local copy of the repo.
