What is CPU Frequency?
CPU Frequency is a GNOME Shell extension that adds an applet to the main panel, which shows current CPU(s) frequency.
What it looks like?
Everybody loves screenshots, right?
As I couldn't find any real documentation for writing gnome-shell extensions, I based my code on better or worse snippets and tutorials found on internet. Some of the sources are mentioned below:
How it works?
The extension scans /sys/devices/system/cpu[0-9]+/cpufreq directories to find information about available and current CPU frequencies and presents it graphically.
The firstname.lastname@example.org directory should be copied to /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions or ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/:
# cp cpufreq\@zdyb.tk /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions
$ cp cpufreq\@zdyb.tk ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
Please do not forget to enable the newly installed extension using for example gnome-tweak-tool.
If you don't want icons to be desaturated, you can edit email@example.com/extension.js file and change DESATURATE to false:
const DESATURATE = false;
The cpu icons are borrowed from GNOME 2.x applet named cpufreq. The icons are included in GNOME repository, so I assume the original author has nothing against using them in this project. If it's not true, please someone let me know.
