Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

  • Name: GreenWithEnvy ( GWE )
  • Homepage: https://gitlab.com/leinardi/gwe
  • GWE is a GTK system utility designed to provide information, control the fans and overclock your NVIDIA video card and graphics processor. It would be good to have something that you can control your gpu fans with and/or overclock it. Their flatpack does not work with nvidia beta and 415 versions etc. There is no snap for it.
  • It is open source
  • Latest version: https://gitlab.com/leinardi/gwe/-/archive/0.12.3/gwe-0.12.3.tar.gz
  • Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? -> Potentially every gamer that uses nvidia cards and wants to game on Linux / Solus and have control over their gpu.

IMO I think it would be better to include something like tux-clocker which does pretty much the same thing but with the plan to add support for AMD GPU’s.

@Jacalz That does not appear to be as actively developed and it is Qt-based, not GTK3.

Yeah you are right. It seemed to have more momentum behind it a couple months ago when I looked at it...

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
