Added bzr to makedepends()! Sorry I hadn't noticed it.

bzr needs to be added as a makedepends. @mozo, meanwhile you can simply install it yourself in advance.

It gives me an error: Cannot find the bzr package needed to handle bzr sources.

Minor update: changed the source of minimum/maximum cpu frequency used for the icon to cpuinfo (still via sysfs). This represents the relative system load more appropriately in my opinion (current frequency compared to hardware extremes rather than current scaling governor limitations).

Yes, got it! Sorry ;)

That is not the main program's executable.

You should execute /usr/bin/indicator-cpufreq to initiate the indicator.

indicator-cpufreq-selector fails with:

Wow.Your indicator-powersave compared to Ubuntu version and others is advanced.

All cpu{freq,power} dependent code and the package cpupower from depends() removed! The indicator now sends all requests to throttle and gets all the information it needs from sysfs.
