Change CPU Frequence without admin password

Postby stef70 on Sat Dec 22, 2012 8:31 am

The CPU Frequency Scaling applet of Mate requires the admin password to change the frequency or governor

The problem is in the file
where the org.gnome services should be renamed org.mate

Modifying the file should work but the changes will be lost after the next update of the package policykit-desktop-privileges

A better solution is to add a new file (with the .pkla extension) in the same directory:

Code: Select all
[Change CPU Frequency scaling]

[Setting the clock]

The second part allows the desktop user to change the system date & time from the clock applet preferences.
