cpu frequency scaling mate widget doesn't apply settings properly

Project:Trisquel
Version:8.0
Component:Gnome
Category:bug report

Description

Setting it to a named profile like "Conservative" only sets it
for 1 of the 2 cpus. Setting it to 800 MHZ seems to do nothing.

Verify by running cpufreq-info

As far as I know, each instance of this applet is intended to be applied to just one CPU core (configurable in its settings) and there is not a way of applying it to all at once.

Setting the specific frequency step should work, though (but again, just for that core).
