Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

All you have to do on a debian based system for cpu-freq to work is run 'dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets' or on Ubuntu 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets' then it'll explain why it's not available in the first place, and give you a warning about it running SUID, then once you enable it, just add the CPU Frequency Scaling applet to your panel and it works. At least it does for both my AMD64 Desktop and my Intel Centrino Laptop. I did notice that Fedora 7 has this enabled by default.
