hi, just had to do a total install of 10.04, and now Ive lost my temp sensors from my panel.
they are not in the list after right clicking either, though I am pretty sure I have them.

just a rough guess as i dont use 10.04 but try " apt-get install lmsensors"
it may reboot them.

You have to reinstall it and reconfigure it after an Ubuntu install.

Check you have lm-sensors installed in synaptic package manager, then:

sudo sensors-detect-Answer YES to all YES/no questions.
-At the end of sensors-detect, a list of modules that needs to be loaded will displayed.
-Type "yes" to have sensors-detect insert those modules into /etc/modules, or edit /etc/modules yourself.
-Next, run

sudo /etc/init.d/module-init-tools restartThis will read the changes you made to /etc/modules, and insert the new modules into the kernel. (If it does not work reboot - the modules will be loaded at startup)

Open a terminal and run:

sensorsshould give you a voltage, temperature, fanspeed output as here:
(All this info is in this how to)

For the Panel:
Check you have sensors-applet installed in synaptic, with a reinstall it may not be there.
Right click the panel and choose Add to Panel... it's listed as Hardware Sensors Monitor.

If you use the ATI fglrx driver you can also get the GPU temperature by:
