Confirm, change line 173 in .local/share/cinnamon/applets/cpufreq@mtwebster/applet.js to this.cur_changed_id = this._parent.connect('cur-changed', Lang.bind(this, this._onChange)); to fix redraws.

I had problem with the redraw of the values. The following change fixes it for me: - this.cur_changed_id = this._parent.connect('cur-changed', () => this._onChange); + this.cur_changed_id = this._parent.connect('cur-changed', Lang.bind(this, this._onChange)); regards.

I'm not sure what I'm missing or if I misunderstood how this applet is supposed to work. So, my laptop is on battery right now. So it won't change the frequency, which is set to the lowest (798Mhz). FYI It's an AMD APU. So does that mean I'm not supposed to change the frequency of my laptop APU when it's on battery or is that a bug and I should be able to change the frequency whether it's on battery or not?

Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit with all latest updates (6 april 2018): the applet doesn't show a tray icon in the panel. The panel just blinks when the applet is activated and no icon is shown! Please revise the applet, it is very useful because my notebook is very hot and noisy at 2.2Ghz and I want to reduce CPU freq sometimes to cool it. In case if the applet is abandoned and people look for another solution, I also found Indicator-Cpufreq in software manager, it works but it doesn't seem to have any settings.

Applet is not working on Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 3.4: it does display graphics but does not change the governor. Note: I've installed gnome-applets (# apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-applets)

It works bad on Linux mint 18 and Cinnamon 3.2.
