I installed cpufreq indicator from the ppa:artfwo/ppa repository. The cpufreq started and I see it by system monitor but I can't see him in system tray. What can I do to fix it?

Do you mean in the indicator area - or are you talking about the gnome-shell system tray? – fossfreedom Dec 1 '11 at 13:01
@fossfreedom Yes. I mean the indicator area. Sorry. – falcon Dec 4 '11 at 10:01
Can you confirm that you actually installed the correct package? sudo apt-get install indicator-cpufreq - what errors if any do you get if you run indicator-cpufreq from the command line? – fossfreedom Dec 4 '11 at 19:01
Thank you. I solved this problem. This was a bug with the Faenza icon theme. – falcon Dec 5 '11 at 12:22
This is a bug as @falcon stated. – James Jan 25 '12 at 2:07

An example from my machine, you can add/remove things from or to it. Terminal: gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'parcellite', 'Skype', 'hp-systray']"

This is dangerous! If the user just picks up this command and types it to a terminal he might loose what configurations he has at the moment. You should make an answer to specifically to his request, in his case he wants cpufreq white-listed but that does not mean that your config will work on his system. There is room for improving this but its on the right path, try to make it better. – Bruno Pereira Dec 1 '11 at 14:08
I have tried it (add 'indicator-cpufreq' or 'cpufreq') but it doesn't work. – falcon Dec 4 '11 at 10:27
afaik you have to start nautilus again, with:nautilus -q and nautilus via the terminal. Did you try that? – leoquant Dec 4 '11 at 10:43
@leoquant I did reboot. – falcon Dec 4 '11 at 10:57
try this thread on ubuntuforums: if you have further questions please let me know. – leoquant Dec 4 '11 at 12:37
