My bad. I have now pushed @jgjhodd's change.

Stile get:

"==> Starting build()... sed: can't read data/ No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... -> error making: cpupower-gui"

Changing line 23 of PKGBUILD to: sed -i '15d' "$srcdir/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/data/" didn't help.

Yes, it seems that fix is still needed. Thank you for your efforts, jghodd and vagnum08! The last fix which is not yet applied as of right now will help everyone.

@jghodd I can confirm that change worked for me as well.

@iestynapmwg change line 23 of PKGBUILD to: sed -i '15d' "$srcdir/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/data/"

Might not be exactly the change needed, but it works.

Running 'makepkg -si' gives me an error:

==> Starting build()... sed: can't read data/ No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

vagnum08 commented on 2022-01-18 17:56 (UTC)

Patched the offending file in the PKGBUILD

same, cannot build: cpupower-gui-1.0.0/data/ ERROR: Function does not take positional arguments.

Can't build cpupower-gui (and also cpupower-gui-git) with cpupower-gui/data/ ERROR: Function does not take positional arguments.

When I have this installed my system is unable to set correct governor at boot. Finally I was able to change default governor by removing cpupower-gui and adding it to kernel line.

vagnum08 commented on 2021-01-21 09:13 (UTC)

This is due to an update of python. The solution is to rebuild the package.

I will change the version in PKGBUILD so other will see it as update to force rebuild.

Thanks for letting me know.

It fails to start up for me -- failing to find pyhon module cpupower_gui:

aceback (most recent call last):

vivaeltopo commented on 2020-11-09 15:22 (UTC)

yeah works now

vagnum08 commented on 2020-11-09 12:03 (UTC) (edited on 2020-11-09 12:42 (UTC) by vagnum08)

There is an issue with the systemd alias.

I have added a install script to enable the service. Give it a try, it should work. (Maybe remove the old one first.)

The latest (1.0.0) update does not work.

This only compiled successfully for me with appstream-glib installed.

Hoek commented on 2020-10-17 16:39 (UTC)

@vagnum08: the package 'pyxdg' got split into 'python-pyxdg' and 'python2-pyxdg'. Currently installing cpupower-gui pulls in python2. Renaming the dependency 'pyxdg' to 'python-pyxdg' works with my python3 installation and builds fine.

vagnum08 commented on 2019-11-22 14:40 (UTC)

After the last update dbus-python was returning an object instead of an int. I have patched it and it is working now.

chorriwuarri commented on 2019-11-22 11:18 (UTC)

Since the last python update it doesn't work for me. I recompile it and now it starts but when it asks for my password it tells me I don't have permission.

other programs like gufw or pamac, ask me for the password and it works

ector commented on 2019-11-08 15:13 (UTC)

yes,today working. Thank

vagnum08 commented on 2019-11-07 19:28 (UTC)

Hi ector,

I have updated the package to the latest version (0.7.0). Could you give it a try and see if you get the same error?

ector commented on 2019-11-06 12:44 (UTC) (edited on 2019-11-06 12:44 (UTC) by ector)

vagnum08 commented on 2019-09-09 16:49 (UTC)

Removed "git" from makedepends. Thanks for pointing out.

uffe commented on 2019-09-03 09:18 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD does not need "git" as a makedepend - could you please remove "git" from makedepend ? Thanks :-)
