Medion Laptop (really a netbook) E2213 MD60193
« on: July 02, 2019, 03:18:06 pm »
Long time lurker, first time poster. I was convinced to retry Peppermint OS via Zeb on Destination Linux, and I'm glad I did - I absolutely love it.

I have no issues on this little laptop - low resource usage and snappy performance are making me very happy. I'd love to see something like TLP (and potentially ananicy) come out of the box. Other than that - keep up the amazing work peppermint team! Thank you so much!

Does TLP still actually make a difference ? .. I thought most of what it did was pulled into the kernel ages ago (?)

Thank you both for the welcome!  ;D

@PCNetSpec - It... seems to? Battery life seems to improve when it's active. This little laptop tends to go from 8 to around 11 hours battery life on light usage (little browser usage). Anecdotal evidence only, I'm afraid, unless someone shows me how to get stats for that.  :)

No... Thank YOU  :)

I haven't thought about TLP, in years. I'm going to install this GUI, in my Eee PC, when I get back to the abode.

I'll see if I can do some real world tests .. it's still gonna be anecdotal, but can't hurt to try it on my hardware too :)

Nice to see there's also a GUI front end for it now too .. thanks VinDSL :)

Glad to have been of even minimal service here. Peppermint is really amazing, so if I've helped make it a little better it's to my great pleasure!  :)

I don't know enough about it to start using the gui - I usually just install it using the ppa following the instructions here:

https://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html

...and then just let it do its thing. :)

That looks awesome and fairly user friendly. I'll check it out as well.   :D

...fairly user friendly...

A couple of possible naggles...

I use ZSH as my shell 99.9% of the time, not BASH, so cloning the git and building the .deb was simple.

I use 'Oh My Zsh' for the framework: https://ohmyz.sh/

And, TLPUI doesn't auto-add itself to the menu.

I wanted it on the panel anyway, so I added it there. You can see its launcher on the panel, to the right of my clock.

I'm NOT suggesting that you need to take any of these extra steps - just saying...  :)
