People that used to use Windows before using Ubuntu may have noticed that Ubuntu consumes battery energy very fast; this is due to the fact that, unlike Windows, Ubuntu doesn’t have any energy manager installed with it. In this post, I will be showing you how to install one called Jupiter.
Jupiter is a tool that changes your laptop configuration into ones that does not consume too much energy, such turning down Wireless when you are not using it and reducing the screen brightness…
But wait a second; all these stuff can be done manually, aren’t they?
Yes of course! but Jupiter does them automatically
To install Jupiter, we’ll use PPA repositories. So we need to run these commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jupiter
Jupiter is a great tool, though there is other methods to use so as to reduce energy consumption; for instance, you can log in using Unity 2D or Gnome Classic with no visual effects instead of Unity. I’ll be covering this in one of my next posts.
