I'm using 12.04 and I want to add "indicator-cpufreq" to my panel. It's installed and I try to launch it manually through Alt+F2. It just doesn't show up. Does anyone know why?

Good information, thank you! Guess I just have to wait then. – jesurun Sep 16 '12 at 20:17

@ green7 is right, that is a bug. And the bug is same thing wrong with the icon theme, so the indicator doesn't appear. You can try too switch some other icon theme. See #5 floor.
