With the KDE livecd, I'm ending up with two power icons in the systray; it looks
like one is klaptop and the other is kpowersave. This is probably not what we
Ah. Thanks for mention it (don't own a laptop). kpowersave is set as "default"
in extra's comps.xml. We could manually exclude kpowersave on the livecd. But
maybe it should be set as "optional" in comps.xml.
kpowersave is what we want, and needs to stay.
klaptop will be gone asap as soon as kde is moved to Extras... hint, hint.
In the meantime, than is working on that.
Ah, Ok. Chtilesh also mentioned this but I wasn't shure because klaptop is not

What would you suggest until split is done: Leave klaptop and kpowersave on
the livecd (to test kpowersave) or exclude kpowersave for test4?

Hopefully the test4 spin is done (my fingers are crossed...). We definitely
want it cleaned up for final, but it doesn't really qualify as a test4 blocker
ooops, klaptop isn't on the wiki (my bad), but we did discuss it in several KDE
SIG irc meetings.
As I said, kpowersave needs to stay. omitting it isn't(shouldn't) be an option.
We should stay with the upstream and more tested klaptop and then change over
with KDE4 to newer/other versions if appropriate.

I have no opinion in this point because I don't own a laptop to compare these
two. So not including kpowersave would also be fine for me.
klaptop decreases battery life by as much as 50% (due to it's polling
of /proc/...), kpowersave doesn't and is dbus-aware to boot. It is (should be)
a no-brainer to go with kpowersave.
We've discussed this topic in several KDE SIG meetings already.
Next rawhide push will split klaptop into kdeuitls-extras. So on the livecd only
kpowersave will remain.
kdeutils is tagged as "f7-final", so I close this bug.
