Hi all,

I am looking for a tool that will enable me to adjust my processors power usage/performance and came across the following article : http://itsfoss.com/install-cpufreq-ubuntu-1304/

Has or does anyone here use this tool?

If so, are there any other steps (other than the command listed below) required in order to install it?

sudo apt-get install indicator-cpufreq

Thanks for any help or clarification that can be provided.

I do use this on Ubuntu. And this tool will allow you to do that.

sudo apt-get install indicator-cpufreq

Is all you need to install it.

I normally leave mine set to ondemand.

Great tool, I've been using this one since at least Mint 11, maybe 10. 

 

The only OS that I've has issues with installing on was Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.1. Tried twice, rebooting between attempts, all the more reason why I'll likely stick with MATE, everything works w/out extra work.
