Original question by some guy: CPU Frequency Scaling in Unity?

Followup: I installed the indicator-cpufreq app and ran it, but nothing appears in my indicator are. I can see that the app is running with ps -A|grep cpufreq. I tried running it with sudo as well, but no dice. Trying to run the app with -v for verbose gives no extra output either.

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?

It may be an icon issue. Try running the following:

sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/ubuntu-mono-dark
sudo gtk-update-icon-cache /usr/share/icons/ubuntu-mono-light
