One of the new features of Fedora 34 and GNOME 40 is power profiles. It lets someone switch between performance, balanced, and battery saver profiles.
When it exists on the system, it’s shown in GNOME Settings and looks like this:
It’s packaged as
power-profiles-daemon and seems to be in Workstation already (as I saw it on my non-Silverblue personal laptop over the weekend and don’t remember installing it), but isn’t in Silverblue.
Simply adding it via
rpm-ostree install power-profiles-daemon seems to work fine. However, this is something that should be there by default.
@walters: Where’s the best place to report packages that should be in Silverblue but aren’t? (Or vice versa for that matter.)
I found Overview - workstation-ostree-config - Pagure.io (which seems like it might be the best place to file this), but can’t log in to Fedora today (I just get “OpenID request was cancelled” in Firefox and Chrome… and an infinite spinner in GNOME Web).
Is the mirror at GitHub - cgwalters/fedora-silverblue-config: Copy of https://pagure.io/workstation-ostree-config/ also appropriate?
