Improve battery life and reduce overheating in Ubuntu/Debian

Feeling the heat from your laptop? Overheating and reduced battery life is common ‘phenomenon’ in Linux Mint. Jupiter was the best tool to reduce overheating in Linux desktop but since its development has stopped, you can use TLP or CPUFREQ instead of Jupiter. Install TLP using the following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
sudo tlp start

No configuration required for using TLP. Install it and forget about it. If you want to use CPUFREQ, read this article how to use CPUFREQ to reduce overheating in Ubuntu.
