How to make auto-freqcpu run on Garuda

Hi, I have been using Garuda Linux for the last week and I really like this distribution. However, I have encountered a problem and that is that the CPU governor is always in performance and on my laptop the heat becomes unbearable. So, I "Googled" a little to know how I could solve this problem and I found a CLI called auto-cpufreq but I can't get it to work. I don't know if anyone here knows how to use auto-cpufreq? I'm new to Linux so I'm a bit lost.

When I run, this is what the console shows me:

sudo auto-cpufreq --install

--------------------- Deploying auto-cpufreq as a daemon ----------------------

* Turn off bluetooth on boot

* Deploy auto-cpufreq install script
Traceback (most recent call last):

After enabling check if its running correctly:

sudo auto-cpufreq --stats

So, if I turn those settings the heat probleam dissapears? I was readig this forum topic about it: [GUIDE] Configuring Garuda Linux for Laptop - #3 by perewa

Why would it be added as a reply to your post if it wasn't relevant to your problem? :thinking:


I asked because I'm pretty new to Linux and I don't want to break my PC. Forgive me for ask.

New problem, new topic.

We are not psychics to see what problems you have.
