eee-control is an easy to use utility for controlling ASUS Eee PC hardware under Linux. It can toggle hardware (WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) on and off, lets you configure all hardware hotkeys, enables aggressive powersaving, and more.

Main features:

  • ACPI support for hotkeys, LCD brightness control and hardware toggles
  • Toggle hardware (WiFi, Bluetooth, card reader, webcam, touchpad) on and off
  • Easy graphical configuration of hotkey actions
  • Better (finer granularity, more silent) fan control
  • Extended LCD brightness (brighter and darker than the default range)
  • Notifications/OSD (fully configurable)
  • Performance control (adjusts FSB and CPU voltage) for saving power and/or overclocking
  • gnome-power-manager integration for automatic performance adjustment
  • Fine-grained configuration through a configuration file (/etc/eee-control.conf)
  • Monitor for hardware sensors (fan, temperature)
  • Internationalization
  • Clean architecture
  • eee-control-daemon (low level operations, hardware abstraction, runs with root privileges)
  • eee-control-tray (GTK/GNOME GUI, configuration, OSD)
  • D-Bus for communication
