How to install TLP for battery managment (Thinkpad T470)

Hey, what is the repository I need to add to install tlp or other good battery management tool?
according to tlp website those 2

dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm dnf install https://repo.linrunner.de/fedora/tlp/repos/releases/tlp-release.fc(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Still don’t find tlp in Software.

Hi,

Have you tried:

sudo dnf install tlp

?

Assuming this means Gnome Software, can’t find any results here either; but works with dnf

Thanks Tom

Hey Tom thank you for the answer and use this command installed it, but I can’t find the icon to the software. :thinking:

I did

sudo tlp start

and got tlp

TLP started in AC mode (auto).

but where is the interface?

tlp is working in background based on config files, here’s documentation: https://linrunner.de/tlp/usage/index.html
Another similar tool is tuned, also available in Fedora https://tuned-project.org/
tuned-gtk is a GUI for it.

OK thank you, it seems to work. slightly_smiling_face:

Maybe you should enable tlp’s systemd unit file if it’s not started automagically. sudo tlp start looks deprecated or at least very manual to me. As far as I know it’s started directly after installation.
