Solve Overheating Issue In Ubuntu 12.10

Care to Share?

Think your laptop running on Ubuntu 12.10 is burning your balls off? Cool down. We have a nice little app, Jupiter, that could help reducing the temperature of your notebook.

Install Jupiter in Ubuntu 12.10:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jupiter

How To Use Jupiter To Solve Over Heating Issue:

Once you have installed Jupiter, go and search for it in Unity dash:

Then from the top menu, choose Performance->Power Saving:

And then you need to do nothing. After some time you should notice an improvement in performance and your laptop less heated than before.

Jupiter has officially stopped the development. However you can still install Jupiter in Ubuntu 13.04 through unofficial PPA. Though I’ll recommend to install cpufreq or TLP in Ubuntu 13.04 and higher version to solve overheating of laptops.

    does this app doesnt have any tradeoffs in the performance?

    • Abhishek Prakash

      Not that I notice any.. except that it notifies “Resolution changed” when you log in to Ubuntu. Its a bug and has no effect on performance whatsoever.

    This helps yes, I’m running between 60/70 , which is still hot as hell.
    Also have a Kworker CPU problem that only goes away when I boot the kernel with acpi=off

      @google-19661c3cce00948216629a1682ce18d8:disqus I can understand that this app does not necessarily cools down your computer completely but it reduces it for sure.
