Honestly, I'm always embarassed with those kind of comments - Feb 01 2009
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 - Nov 17 2008
It should not happen, since kdebase compilation happens correctly on the dashboard and for all distros, so maybe your environment is somehow corrupted - Nov 17 2008
There is user documentation for the KCModule, though I will surely write on userbase as soon as I have more time. - Nov 17 2008
KDE Bugtracker - Oct 12 2008
That file should be part of KDE Cmake modules, but I'll include it in the next package. - Oct 09 2008
The version of KDE you're using belongs to KDE4.2. Hence, you already have PowerDevil installed as part of KDEBase - Oct 06 2008
With 1.3, this and more issues should be fixed. Also, please use the KDE bugtracker from now on to report bugs please. Thanks everyone :) - Oct 05 2008
This issue is probably related to Solid. Could you please try to verify if solid powermanagement shell gives you some weird results? If you need help in finding this out, join #solid or kde-hardware-devel list, thanks - Sep 23 2008
You are right, my mistake :) Thanks, I'll fix this in svn, and release again later in the day. - Sep 17 2008
To everyone: you need development files for libxss, the equivalent of libxss-dev in Debian. - Sep 16 2008
The url is wrong, you got a comment :) - Sep 15 2008
Well, there are still no defaults, you have to create your profiles and assign them. The default profile puts the system in performance mode, so it's quite expected your CPU temperature rises :)
About the crashes, can you please provide backtraces? - Sep 15 2008
I found this guide http://www.heutediewelt.nl/2008/09/switch-to-kde-4-and-compiling-powerdevil/ , obviously the svn address is now outdated, but it should be what you're looking for :) - Sep 15 2008
Looks like you're missing XScreensaver library. Please install it (along with the -dev package, if your distro has it), and retry. - Sep 15 2008
Yeah, that interface is installed by KRunner, so you eventually miss one, check in your distro forums what's missing. - Sep 11 2008
It does work, the plasmoid is still being worked on. Check if PowerDevil service is running under "Services" in systemsettings. Then be assured to configure correctly your profiles, refer to the manual if you're in doubt (svn version) - Sep 08 2008

Looks like you're missing a compiler. Try installing g++ and gcc and retry, ask on your distro forums what packages you need to set up a building environment - Sep 08 2008
Rather simple: it just builds like any other KDE app (cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr && make && make install).
Once done that, relogin. In systemsettings you'll find a new module, configure powerdevil from it, and you're done. - Sep 06 2008
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. - Sep 02 2008
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 :) - Sep 02 2008
I have released a new tarball, since last one had a major bug that caused crash on startup. - Sep 01 2008
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. - Aug 31 2008
PowerDevil has been moved to KDE review - Aug 30 2008
