MX 15/16 Repository: The TLP and TLPUI Thread


Post by Stevo » Thu May 09, 2019 4:32 pm

TLP is an advanced power management tool for optimizing battery life on laptops running Linux. Its default configuration is usually enough to to see an improvement in battery life, however, TLP offers a wide range of configuration options which can be changed by editing its configuration file.
We also have a GUI for configuring it in the test repos called tlpui.


We now have the latest tlp 1.2.2 in the test repo, as well as a newer git pull of tlpui there that is compatible with 1.2.2's new settings.

Please let us know how they install and perform if you give them a try. You may need to reboot before any changes take hold, though. Changes from the 1.1 release:
