  1. PPA is installed
    Software Center shows it as installed
    —no menu item that I can find

    did a reboot to check, still not found

  2. After following the instructions, the terminal said:
    E: Couldn’t find package indicator-cpufreq
    but it seems to work anyway after adding it to the panel.

  3. Ubuntu Geek – You are a genius – I love you!
    My ppp-daemon kept dying after a few seconds of dialup apparently because of varying CPU frequency but now thanks to Carlos Garcia Campos I can set the speed (any speed except “On demand”) and my dialup works like a charm.
    You have made my day!

  4. I can’t find it anywhere in the add to panel lists. This is one of the most annoying things with Ubuntu installing something then never finding it on any menu.

  5. PS sorry I found it but often I can’t find new programs anywhere and can’t browse to it like programs files on XP as Linux puts programs in several different folders

  6. Sorry, what exactly do I do after I get to “E: Couldn’t find package indicator-cpufreq”? Would somebody please walk me through this?

  7. You can add 2 (or more, 1 per CPU) using ‘add to panel’ as above, and then select each individual CPU in the ‘preferences’

  8. Well, under 12.10 it at least works running indicator-cpufreq in the terminal, after that it is in the autorun-group and should work every time you boot…
