Decky store Custom store GitHub package.json version

Liberapay GitHub GitHub package.json dependency version (local)


Steam Deck power tweaks for power users.

This is generated from the template plugin for the Decky Plugin Loader. You will need that installed for this plugin to work.

What does it do?

  • Enable & disable CPU threads & SMT
  • Set CPU frequencies
  • Set GPU frequencies and power (fastPPT & slowPPT)
  • Cap battery charge level
  • Display supplementary battery info
  • Keep settings between restarts (stored in ~/homebrew/settings/PowerTools/<appId>.ron)

This plugin is tested on Steam Deck LCD/OLED, but is designed to work on other Linux devices as well. Unfortunately I am currently unable to test on most other devices.


Please use Decky's built-in store to install official releases. If you want to test unstable versions, use my custom store. If you would like to use an in-development version, feel free to build PowerTools yourself.


  1. Requirements: a functioning Rust toolchain for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu (or -musl), pnpm, and some tech literacy
  2. In a terminal, navigate to the backend directory of this project and run ./build.sh
  3. In the root of this project, run pnpm run build
  4. Transfer the project (especially dist/ and bin/) to a folder in your Steam Deck's ~/homebrew/plugins directory
  5. Restart Decky with sudo systemctl restart plugin_loader.service

All contributions are welcome! Anything from a comment on an issue to a new feature pull request will be appreciated by PowerTools's crack team of one (NGnius).


Adding new languages and keeping existing language files up to date makes PowerTools more accessible to the majority of the world which doesn't speak English. Take a look at this comment (and the rest of that issue) to get started.
