Both ubuntustudio-look and ubuntustudio-default-settings need to be 
released by someone who has access.

Ross was the one I was hoping would release the two above packages... need 
to find someone else.

-controls has reached a dividing point for it's cpu governor stuff. What 
works on 16.04 does not work on 18.04. I do not know which release/cycle 
made the change. If someone happens to have 17.10 or 17.04 could they 
please check for the existance of /etc/init.d/ondemand or similar. 16.04 
has it, 18.04 does not. (18.04 uses systemd)

Bug in 18.04 cpufrequilts - rc script runs before the required kernel 
modules are loaded :) and needs to be systemd-ified to work well with the 
normal ondemand hack. By the way for those of you interested, powersave 
does, ondemand does not. Ondemand actually uses more power/hattery/gets 
hotter than performance. powersave runs completely in the cpu and so 
works, but ondemand is software based and so if the cpu is idle it keeps 
getting woke up to see if it is busy. performance does not do that.

This probably means our current -controls is broken but not in a crashy 
way, just cpu governor settings will not carry over from session to 
session, the rt part is still fine.
