@Stunts did you ever pick up that amd GPU? :P

The "default" version of this git package will build the "master" branch, which is outdated. It is still using the old power management method, which has been deprecated for about a year.
You can try to build the DPM branch ( which uses the current dynpm power management method, but keep in mind it is not as tested as I would like. I have not updated this package since my last machine with an AMD GPU went bust.
I might pick development of radeon-tray back up (who am I kidding, I *will* pick it up) when I get myself another system with an AMD GPU.

It's not working. It build ok, but... when I want to run it, nothing happens. What should I do?

Good point.
Thanks for the feedback.

I have DPM disabled since it's buggy on my card and crashes the system, hence the need to use this program. I'll update if I find any workaround.

UPDATE: I installed the DRM branch and the same issue persists. It seems to be an issue with the server script, launched by systemd. If I just launch the client as root, it works. I'll just start it as "kdesudo radeontray" from now on.

It's been a while since I used this package (my laptop with a radeon card died a few year ago).
However, currently radeon cards use the DPM method, which might explain the permission problem, as this program is for the old "manual" method.
Try using the "DPM" branch from git ( and let me know if it solves the problem for you.

Trying to use the program throws a permission error, but it's not very descriptive. Anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks for the heads up!

Bumped PKGREL to force a rebuild due to python updates.

Hey again. Last python update broke it, reinstalling fixes the issue.

Thanks for all the feedback.
I have bumped the PKGREL to force a reinstall for everyone.
