2011/06/11 1 komentar
The role of this application is energy management. It provides extended battery life on a single charge by reducing the processor speed. So, Jupiter is an alternative to Super Hybrid Engine-in for Linux.
Jupiter offers three modes of consumption:
- maximum performance
- high performance
- power saver
In addition, there are some additional options:
- Screen Orientation
- Screen Resolution
- WiFi On/Off
- Bluetooth On/Off
- Touchpad On/Off
- Video Displays
How to install Jupiter on Xubuntu 11.04 or 11.10?
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install jupiter
If you use the EeePC install jupiter-eee-support package that is required for SHE (Super Hybrid Engine):
sudo apt-get install jupiter-support-eee
If you use Ubuntu 11.04+ with Unity run Jupiter from menu and then logout and login, otherwise jupiter is not shown in the panel.
Note: Jupiter is not officially supported in Ubuntu and use it at your own risk. Personally I use Jupiter on Ubuntu 10.04 version and never had any problems.
