I am having an issue in regard to battery charging on linux. when I bought my Lenovo laptop I was on windows so I installed a binary on my system that allowed me to set the battery charging into “Conservation mode” so that i only charges and uncharges to keep the battery charge in a certain range and othewise uses AC instead of battery. This settings persisted over when I switched to linux because I suppose it wrote it into BIOS /EFI . But now suddenly today it stopped to work for some reason, I did a little search and found maybe “tlp” can do the same thing, but when I try to install it it says there is a conflict and I am not sure If I want to remove that program as I don’t know what it does, Any suggestions on what to do? I suppose there should be a option If I can boot into BIOS, right? I also can attach the windows I have installed in a External HDD for this laptop which had Windows on it, boot into it, install that binary and set it up again and hope that the settings persist again.
here is the conflict I get when trying to install tlp:
looking for conflicting packages...
:: tlp and power-profiles-daemon are in conflict. Remove power-profiles-daemon? [y/N] N
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: tlp and power-profiles-daemon are in conflict
Thank you, it is very interesting to learn how to make a custom job for systemd, but for the issue I figured out that the description in config file was misleading and for non-ThinkPad Lenovos the value should set to “1” so that it enabled to default 60% value.
