    for Thinkpads

it's a bit confusing which packages to use.

_______________________________
alternative:
    $ powertop --auto-tune #on startup

#fan control program
#needed ?

yes:
    tlp tlp-rdw
    acpi-call-dkms tp-smapi-dkms (batt management)
    linux-tools-common (contains "perf", see https://askubuntu.com/questions/600609/what-is-linux-tools-package-is-it-needed-for-average-desktop-user) ... or "linux-tools-generic" or both

nah / ?:
    thinkfan:
        (controls fans ... is that a good idea?)
        i guess yes - if you watch over your temperatures
        ??? how much do fans really use?

    * https://linrunner.de/tlp/faq/powertop.html :
        """Does Powertop achieve better power saving than TLP?
Basically no. TLP’s default configuration is based on the same policy as Powertop’s recommendations. TLP will take care of the majority of settings that powertop --autotune would, and with less trial and error. Refer to the following sections for details and exceptions."""

*** PAD


Display user-installed packages on system

"""
#project #oldie
btw, i REALLY need something that analyzes "history", scripts, and packages, and outputs what is user installed !
"""
CHT🔗truco-packages has the answer !!!



!!! make this executable 

This should:
    A) be cleaned up, to be an executable file
    B) have something that would generate one out of it

I guess B should be easiest with some new syntax.


"ALSO HAS"
:
    * calibre has "ebook-convert"
    * sysstat has "sar" and almost all *stat
