8.4 Configuring Notifications

KPowersave provides various types of feedback upon certain events. To open the notification configuration dialog, either right-click the panel icon and select Configure Notifications or select Configure KPowersave > General Settings > Configure Notifications.

Figure 8-2 Configuring KPowersave Notifications

KPowersave supports several different types of notifications that can be associated with different events. The most prominent of them are:


Select one of the KDE system sounds to be played.


Specify the full path to a file where KPowersave should log to.

Program Execution

Specify the full command for a program that should be executed.

Message Windows

Have KPowersave throw a pop-up window.

Passive Windows

Have KPowersave throw a passive window that does not pull focus.

Basically, there are two different ways to configure KPowersave notifications. Either use the Quick Controls to toggle the notification status of multiple events at once or use the Actions settings to configure them one by one.
