For everyone interested in DDC/CI brightness control, I have created a package with the ddcutil flag enabled: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/powerdevil-ddcutil/

It is based on the official package and follows the stable plasma releases.

Yes, indeed! As a matter of fact I found out about the revert-reverted change just about yesterday!

Thank you a lot

Regarding DDC/CI, please note that since version 5.27.6-2 the official package "powerdevil" includes ddcutil support as a hard dependency.

I saw that you deleted the powerdevil-ddcutil package. I suppose because with release 5.27.5-2 the official maintainers added support to ddcutil.

However in the following release they decided to revert the change. No idea why...

Do you think we can have powerdevil-ddcutil back in the meantime? ^^

I was going to look into this when @cirlo suggested it, but I ended up completely forgetting about it :(

I try to keep these PKGBUILDs as close as possible to the official ones, but I see no reason why we couldn't add this, to be honest

Oh well, I apologize for my bad memory, I guess I'll just pin @Jake's comment now. Thank you!

Is there any reason not to compile with -DHAVE_DDCUTIL=On flag? My two monitors do not support Xrandr in order to change brightness, so I have to use DDC/CI (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Backlight#External_monitors).

For the past 1+ year I have compiled powerdevil with the above-mentioned flag and everything went smoothly!

The only downside I can see is that if someone does not configure ddcutil properly, no brightness slider is shown. But that's what is already happening for many people, so... no downside?

Apparently powerdevil doesn't work correctly when installed in /opt/kf5, it causes kded5 to go in a loop and uses a lot of CPU (it's always using 50% CPU on my computer), see here: http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/499607-KDE5?p=2654741#post2654741 and https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=337674

@arojas I builded from zero all kf5 git version (complete uninstall, deleted dir /opt/kf5 and my build kf5's directory) and the problem is still there :( I have this message when I build solid-git (I posted there too): -- The following features have been disabled: * Solid::Job , WIP: Base class for Solid Asynchronous apis * Solid::PowerManagement , WIP: Asynchronous API for power management -- Configuring done
