thermald provides a thermald_set_pref.sh and a thermal monitor application in the tools folder. Should a USE flag be added to install these optionally?
sounds a good suggestion ^_^
it's fairly easy to add the script thermald_set_pref.sh, but the monitor application require some QT dependency (haven't really look into them deeply)
btw, I'd really appreciate if you could come up with a patch for this, then I could more than happy to merge it..
Besides the QT requirement, the monitor application seems to require configuration of a "power" group. Just starting it will yield
> Make sure that thermal daemon started with --dbus-enable option

Creating a group "sudo groupadd power" and adding my user to it "sudo usermod -aG power leonard" does not help. (After logging out and back in again, as well as restarting the thermald).
thermald_set_pref.sh did not help on my system.
So I suggest to keep this open for now until a person with more immediate use for the tools can contribute a patch.
