coderus's picture

what wrong with you, dude?

Bocephus's picture

Works on Sailfish X now? What does enabling powersave do exactly?

coderus's picture

nobody know actually. this is the strangest thing i ever seen in my life.

Ha ha ha ha, the most subtle answer I have seen in a long time.

It is good to have you back man!

Bocephus's picture

Ok, then I guess there's no reason to install it.

Thank you dev, working fine now! I added translations to pt_BR at transifex project page.

What a nice surprise!

Seeing as how the last update was over a year before Sailfish X was released, a valid question would be if this package works on the Xperia X. Also, after 3 years the question about what enabling powersave mode actually does has still not been answered.

I see the icon in settings in "system" section instead of "info" section like your screenshots.

It's not a big deal to be reported. And i'm so lazy to update screenshots, because it doesnt matter .

I did not have icons on the left of the menu "Powersave" in Settings.

After some investiggations I have found that the icons of Powersave were in Folder "/opt/alien/usr/share/themes/jolla-ambient/meegotouch/icons/" but all others icons are in Folder "/opt/alien/usr/share/themes/sailfish-default/meegotouch/z1.0/icons/".

This command (as root) solved the problem:

# mv /opt/alien/usr/share/themes/jolla-ambient/meegotouch/icons/*.png /opt/alien/usr/share/themes/sailfish-default/meegotouch/z1.0/icons/

Or you can do this with File Browser and FBRoot, if not so confident with command line.
edit: no root needed.

And the two icons disappeared again from the options page after the latest update. Doesn't matter, great tweak!

My icons never appeared after a Reboot :'(

Im going to try a Reinstall

Andrey, can you update it for Tablet, please.

coderus's picture

sorry i have reflashed my tablet to android, but i can try to remove dependency on psmdbus, i hope system dbus module contains fixies for my problem.

Schturman's picture

Yes, please, try to create without dependencies. Thanks.

codeandcreate's picture

No, doesn't work if i force installation. The settings just doesn't open. :(

coderus's picture

what no? i didn't asked to force install package, because it wont work this way :)

codeandcreate's picture

Hm, ok i thought it doesn't matter if i install with --nodeps or if i alter the package... could you maybe remove dependency? ^^ 

Skillmon's picture

For me the patch is working on SFOS but for a battery threshold >25% it's always on powersaving mode.

Will this work on Sailfish 2.0.10 ?

Do you know what settings the jolla powersave mode should change? I have installed this and set it to be very conservative however I could not find any change at all. For example when I checked the CPU governor it still was ramped up to max. I had to change it manually in order to powersave. :/

coderus's picture

It just enabling system "powersave" option, which is not yet bind to any UI elements. And how it works internally i don't know.

kanakodavis's picture

Thank you very much for clarification. I try to dig into it and find out what it does.

forgrimm's picture

Yeah, I mean, how does it save power? Limiting processing power, cutting data connections or reducing wake up ticks?

coderus's picture

You need to ask Jolla about it, not me :)
