I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and add "CPU Frequency scaling" applet to the Panel, to see if my laptop is running at full strength, because I can not find Powernowd during services.
I found out that my laptop is still running at 800MHz, and would like to start at full strength by default, that is 1.9 GHz.
In Ubuntu 8.10 I had to enter Powernowd daemon configuration files and change a line from "Ondemand" to "Performance", but how do I get Ubuntu 9.04 to make it to the Performance as default?
EDIT: I keep an eye on the systemlog and got this error message in "Messages" category as it went down to 800MHz:
First, this is a Ubuntu question, not a "software" one. Thus you should push the "Report" button at the bottom of your post, above, and ask the moderator to move your thread to the Ubuntu forum. (The Ubuntu forum is a sub-forum of the "Distributions" forum.)
That being said, did you do an sudo apt-get install powernowd to install the PowerNow deamon? If not, try that and then see if your applet works.
