I've partially rewritten the throttle script. Most importantly, configuration will now be stored in /etc/throttle.d/{powersave,performance}, and new versions will install with .pacnew appended.

I've also expand the syntax, and added more options. In particular, I've tried to mimic systemd controller syntax, such that start means "begin to throttle" (save power) and stop means "cease to throttle" (improve performance). Also added check options to each minor throttle.

The old syntax still works too.

For example, to set the cpu governor, select from:

$ throttle {gov,cpu} {{full,performance,stop},{cut,powersave,start},{check,status}}

Use whichever wording you prefer:

cut == powersave == start (save power)

full == performance == stop (improve performance)

check == status (output current settings)

Added bzr to makedepends()! Sorry I hadn't noticed it.

bzr needs to be added as a makedepends. @mozo, meanwhile you can simply install it yourself in advance.

It gives me an error: Cannot find the bzr package needed to handle bzr sources.

Minor update: changed the source of minimum/maximum cpu frequency used for the icon to cpuinfo (still via sysfs). This represents the relative system load more appropriately in my opinion (current frequency compared to hardware extremes rather than current scaling governor limitations).

Yes, got it! Sorry ;)

That is not the main program's executable.

You should execute /usr/bin/indicator-cpufreq to initiate the indicator.

Wow.Your indicator-powersave compared to Ubuntu version and others is advanced.
