You'll need to put any calls to paramano-set through sudo:

`sudo paramano-set -g powersave -c 1`

but never

`sudo paramano`

`sudo paramano-set -g powersave -c 1`

Paramano will do this automatically, so you do not need to run `sudo parmano`

Hi,

i edited the sudo file already. sudo -l shows:

(ALL) ALL
(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/paramano-set

And when i execute

paramano-set -g powersave -c 1

i get this error:

Warning: running as UID 1000, not 0
FAILED: Couldn't open /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor for writing

I don't see what i'm missing here...

With the rename, trayfreq-set is no longer called, but paramano-set instead. I should've mentioned that /usr/bin/trayfreq and /usr/bin/trayfreq-set are now merely symlinks for backwards compatability. For more up-to-date instructions, please see: https://github.com/phillid/paramano/#changing-the-governorfrequency-doesnt-work

Hi!

I'm starting paramano via my xinitrc, this means that i am not able to change the frequency because of not having the right permissions. In the trayfreq-archlinux comment section you once told me to change the permission of trayfreq-set, now i'd like to do the same to paramano-set, but i can't find the comment anymore. The suggested way of editing the sudoers file didn't help either.

Thank you.

Note that there is a pending request on `trayfreq-archlinux` to be merged into `paramano` due to the software being renamed upstream. Switching to paramano will require manual transfer of your configuration from /etc/trayfreq.conf to /etc/paramano.conf and ~/.trayfreq.conf to ~/.paramano.conf

For the curious, the rename is hapenning for three reasons:

1) trayfreq-archlinux was really only a temporary name
2) The -archlinux suffix implies the software is specific to archlinux
3) Calling this software trayfreq-(anything) isn't right as it has no affiation with trayfreq, except for once having the same source code.

Thanks for your understanding.
Cheers

I've been moving servers and didn't think to re-upload my PKGBUILDs. Fixed now

Package does not compile, Source file is down.

Hum, no I don't want to uninstall the intel_pstate driver. It's certainly a good solution to keep it as it is installed by default for me, arch maintainer take care to this.

I've searched for another solution, so found 2 coupled :

1 automatic, cpufreqd (daemon) with configuration when plug-in battery and plug-off and other automatic features.

1 manual, just made 2 launchers on my desktop with these 2 commands :

'sudo cpupower frequency-set -g performance'
'sudo cpupower frequency-set -g powersave'

And click on "run it in a terminal" then after made it executable, it runs, opens a terminal and just have to enter sudo password.

Perhaps I'll retry your solution in a few months. It was certainly a good software but unfortunately not suitable with a simple install. You'll certainly find a solution to make it run with intel_pstate, most of PC will have it quickly...
