How to Install Jupiter in Linux Mint 15

This simple and brief tutorial is going to show you how to install Jupiter from JoliCloud PPA in Linux Mint 15 Olivia.

As you may know, Jupiter is a powerful and lightweight power and hardware control applet. It has been retired and last supported release is up to Linux Mint 14 Nadia. However, Jupiter is available for Olivia from JoliCloud Desktop Environment PPA.

The webupd8team add the packages to the ppa and it’ll be used as a background program for JoliCloud session. I’ve installed it on my laptop and it’s working well.
