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.
