Description Leonard Lausen 2018-09-14 09:02:29 UTC
thermald provides a 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, 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..
Comment 3 Leonard Lausen 2018-10-13 15:38:55 UTC
Besides the QT requirement, the monitor application seems to require configuration of a "power" group. Just starting it will yield

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). 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.

I was able to build thermal_monitor successfully by qmake;make, building the binary file "ThermalMonitor".
However I'm no ebuild developer...
