I'm a new Linux user and I'm having a bad time trying to make "indicator-cpufreq" work. It just doesn't show up on my bar, what am I doing wrong? I want to use it to set my CPU to maximum performance. Is there any other software I can use or should I fix this one? Thanks

I'm running the last version of Ubuntu ( 15 ). It is up to date

Ubuntu adjusts the clock rate automatically as per the requirement. If any of your process needs higher clock rate to run optimally , it will be achieved. You can monitor the performance using the tool call Psensor.

The installation procedure is thus:

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors hddtemp
sudo sensors-detect
sudo service kmod start
sudo apt-get install psensor
