@coxe87b you don't need to --install daemon manually, this package contains systemd service already. instead, you need to start and enable service using: systemctl enable --now auto-cpufreq.service

@grandchild that's from upstream, I'll try fixing it at some point

Hi, the post-upgrade message telling me to reload the systemd unit and restarting it is unnecessary: every package with a service is like that, this is not something that warrants a message.

The same goes for the the post-install message:

  • don't say that it's been installed

  • don't say that you need to enable the service (if every package did that...)

  • don't give usage info (again, if every package...)

  • don't tell me about the Gnome Power Profiles Daemon conflict, build it in. Add this to the service file, to actually conflict with it:

there's an issue with the update check in win.handle_update() in auto-cpufreq-gtk. For now i've commented the check and the program launches. It seems like it has already been fixed upstream though:

It is fine with CLI, but when it comes to GUI:


The error occurs:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/auto-cpufreq-gtk", line 8, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/auto_cpufreq/bin/", line 18, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/auto_cpufreq/gui/", line 84, in handle_update
    is_new_update = check_for_update()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/auto_cpufreq/", line 183, in check_for_update
    latest_version =  latest_release["tag_name"]
KeyError: 'tag_name'

How to fix this?

@MusicalArtist12 Ran the command sudo mkdir /opt/auto-cpufreq/ but nothing; same result.

I keep getting an error related to some python libraries:

==> Starting build()...
/home/jesper/.asdf/installs/python/3.12.0/bin/python: No module named build
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error: failed to build 'auto-cpufreq-2.1.0-4':
error: packages failed to build: auto-cpufreq-2.1.0-4

Tried all sorts of hacks and googling, to no avail.

@Hkntai I already pushed an update for that, thanks for the update though. glad that worked.

Hkntai commented on 2023-12-10 22:09 (UTC)

indeed sudo mkdir /opt/auto-cpufreq/ works. Maybe create that folder at installation?

MusicalArtist12 commented on 2023-12-10 20:33 (UTC)

@Hkntaim, run sudo mkdir /opt/auto-cpufreq/... i did a little digging, override.pickle is a runttime file...
