How do I add all missing cpufreq information using gconf-editor in Ubuntu 8.10

Asked by Bruce Hobson

How do I add the missing cpufreq information into gnome-power-manager using the Configuration Editor in Ubuntu 8.10. So, that It works the same as It would in Ubuntu 8.04?

Their seems to be two areas for the gnome-power-manager in gnome-power-manager. One for settings. And one for scheme's. Will we also need any code to make it all work?

I miss being able to set the CPU speed when on AC to full speed. and when on Battery to powersave. And then forgetting the settings until the next version of Ubuntu!!!

Also, how do I delete or-fined keys with Configuration Editor. Sorry, I tried to do this on my own. And now can't figure out how to clean up the extra keys.

I use to add this ability automatically with Ubuntu-Tweak with versions of Ubuntu less then 8.10 like 8.04. But, this no longer work's for 8.10. Even with the latest versions of Ubuntu-Tweak.

When I checked out gnome-power-manager in the Configuration Editor. I noticed missing keys in 8.10. Which is probability why Ubuntu-Tweak can't add this functionality anymore.

So, my question has to do with adding keys myself. Or with some script. So, that I and others can continue to enjoy setting our speed settings once and then forgetting intill the next version of Ubuntu

I also believe this functionality should be a part of the OS. And we should not have to wait for someone else to add it after a new OS is released.

The settings I would like to make are: When plugged into AC power run my Laptop's CPU's at full speed. When on battery's then power saving mode for the CPU's should be used.

Thanks for your time.
