I’ve installed Debian with Gnome on my new Asus EeePC 1000H, and for some reason the Gnome Power Manager preferences wouldn’t let me decide on what cpu frequency scaling governor I wanted to use.
I’m trying to squeeze as much time as I can out of the battery, so I wanted it to be “powersave” when on battery.
The options weren’t there.
After a bit of digging I fould a gconf key,
which, when set, causes the options to be shown.
It’s a bit annoying with all these hidden preferences but at least we have gconf-editor 🙂
