Name: Tame My CPU
Version: 0.2
Type: KDE Kommander Script
Depend: Kommander
License: GPL
More Info:

 well... i was lazy (aren't we all :-)
so i put down together an interface for
cpufreq-set and cpulimit cli applications. one is
for setting the cpu frequency (if your hardware
supports it) and the other is for setting a limit
- in percentage, for applications currently
running on the system. both are use to help the
cpu live longer and not heat it self to death :-)

i use debian so i got them with "apt-get install
cpulimit cpufrequtil"

now, to use the kommander script just make a
.desktop file that have "kmdr-executor
tameMyCPU.kmdr" in it and your set to go :-)

ok, so we are finally made it work and the
kommander interface is up. what now...
to make it work you can either click the "set cpu
freq" after you choose a frequency from the list 
you can click the "set cpu limit" after you choose
an application and a cpu percentage from the
(cpu freq and cpu limit work independently !)

after you set cpu frequency or cpu
percentage-limit to an application you can close
the kommander interface  safely.

feel free to change, immprove and adapt to your
own needs.

enjoy :-)

first release.
the entire application is a bug ;-)

* add support to kosd (great application)
* added slider control for cpu percentage
* added free input text field for applications
that are not on the list
* added .desktop file (please change it after you
relocate the .kmdr file)
* added icon (png file)
* UI changed.
* added button "reset ulimit" in case it is left
running in system's memory after main application
is closed. (and "just in case" you need to kill it
