You likely need the non-free packages for that... Most distributions
no longer ship mp3 support out of the box because they can't legally.
Fedora, for example, has 3rd party rpm repositories that have the
needed plugins to enable it. I don't know about Kubuntu though (sorry).

You likely need the stuff from ipw2200.sourceforge.net (Kubuntu may
have a package containing it, I don't know).

Let me know what you find with that and how it works. I think if you
do a google search for /sys/devices/system/cpu/sched_mc_power_savings
you'll find docs about how to configure it to schedule things between
the double processors to save power. I haven't tried it on my fairly
new core2 system (my mythbox) but have been wanting too. Let me know
if you find it helps.
