  4. You have to add it to panel… ;)

    Right click the panel and select “Add to Panel”, select it from the list and press “Add”… ;)

    Move it around using right-click and “Move”.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

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

    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…
