osdcpufreq displays an OSD-like window with information about the CPU current status, including frequency, driver, etc.
osdcpufreq displays an OSD-like window (similar effect as a television's on-screen volume control) with information about the CPU current status, including frequency, driver, governor, etc.

It is very useful for laptops equipped with mobile technology processors (like the Intel Centrino), which can change the speed on the fly.

Here are some key features of "osdcpufreq":

· Highly customizable interface. You can easily change the colour, the bar length, the font, the font size, the position, the shadow, etc. of the OSD window.
· Highly customizable behaviour. You can set the number of seconds the OSD window is on the screen, or if you want it to stay always on top.
· Desktop environment independent. It works with any desktop environment or window manager, like KDE, GNOME, XFCE, WindowMaker, IceWm, etc.
· Easily configurable. Every setting can be easily changed editing the well commented $HOME/.osdcpufreq.conf file.
