Oh! I needed to install kdesudo through aur. "sudo trayfreq" command gives nothing but error. Now it works, thanks!

@hannibal_l: I updated the package so that you can configure trayfreq to use sudo to run trayfreq-set. Check out 'Autostarting': https://github.com/phillid/trayfreq-archlinux/#autostarting

Does it start when you log in automagically (did you have to put it in your .xinitrc). I'm not familiar with KDE, so can't name a solution outright yet. Try following the quick tip on autostarting at https://github.com/phillid/trayfreq-archlinux/#autostarting

Can someone please help me? How can I run that as root in KDE at the startup without password confirmation?

Hi all, just letting you know there's a new version out with better and cleaner multilingual support. I'd appreciate some feedback from native French speakers; my French is rusty.

Also, if trayfreq refuses to change the governor from the tray, you'll need to run it with sudo permissions. For those of you running trayfreq from your xinitrc, consider reading http://batchbin.ueuo.com/projects/trayfreq-archlinux/#sudo to make it quicker/automated if you're having this issue.

The segfaulting has been fixed in the latest update. I am aware of the reasons for `trayfreq-set` needing root privelleges while the one in trayfreq-fr doesn't. Trayfreq-fr's trayfreq-set has the setuid flag on which means it'll be run as root. This was (frankly) stupid idea as there are fundamental security flaws in trayfreq-set which means on a system where there are potentiall untrusted users, it's only safe to run it through sudo. For now, running trayfreq with `sudo` will work, or simply letting your desktop/window manager run the autostart in `/etc/xdg/autostart/trayfreq.desktop` will run it with the right permisions.

In future, this security flaw will be fixed (there's no harm so long as you run through password protected sudo) and I will reconsider having the setuid flag on by default. In the mean time, if you are hellbent on not having to use sudo and you are sure that those using your system can be fully trusted, you can run `chmod 4755 /usr/bin/trayfreq-set`.

Cheers

I've tested trayfreq-set of both your trayfreq packages. In the archlinux version i'm only able to use it with 'sudo'. With user rights, it crashes with a segmentation fault. Trayfreq-set of the trayfreq-fr packages runs fine with user rights.
So, when i start trayfreq of the trayfreq-archlinux package with superuser rights, it works fine, of course.

That's interesting, it's working fine at my end of things. Are you running trayfreq manually from the command line, or are you using the instance which autostarted? Running manually straight from the command line requires root privelleges and I don't really recommend it. Otherwise, could you please have a prod around with `trayfreq-set -c [core] -g [governor]` while trayfreq is running, observing changes the little bar on the CPU icon in the tray, and report back.

Cheers
