updated libappindicator dependency to libappindicator3 (libappindicator-gtk3), available in AUR

quequotion commented on 2014-12-27 16:54

gtk3-ubuntu is likely to be built with an older version of gtk3 than the arch repo default, since the ubuntu patches are applied to a specific version (the one imported from debian at the time the last ubuntu release was in development).

that shouldn't be a serious problem, unless there are packages installed that explicitly depend on the newer version of gtk3.

there are (literally) cosmetic differences between the two.

Thanks! I am still hesitating to install libindicator-bzr given its requirement for gtk3-ubuntu which conflicts with gtk3:

:: gtk3-ubuntu and gtk3 are in conflict (gtk3). Remove gtk3? [y/N] N

I don't know whether there will be any negative side effects of replacing gtk3 with the ubuntu version.

New indicator-powersave version!

Now with nested menus and an additional switch for hyperthreads!

New throttle version!

Now can additionally toggle hyperthreads and turbo! Also enabled /proc/sys/vm and hdd powersaving settings!

libappindicator is available in the Unity-for-Arch repo:

libappindicator-bzr is also available in AUR, and I have it installed, but this may be overkill.

libappindicator can be found either in the Unity for Arch repository:

Also, libappindicator-bzr from the AUR provides() this package.

I have libappindicator-bzr.

The dependency 'libappindicator' cannot be found.

Note, the "throttle" script included here has some options disabled:

It does not set the cpu governor; use the included indicator-cpufreq functionality for this or uncomment this option at your own discretion.

It does not set /proc/sys/vm/ settings; uncomment these options at your own discretion.

It does not set hdparm settings; uncomment this options at your own discretion.

Just a few patches on cpufreq-indicator-bzr that add two more switches: "full" and "cut". Not very pretty (yet) but fully functional.

These switches call the "throttle" script to change several powersaving options.
