    Sensors Applet Configuration

    Hi,
    The fan speed is not displayed in Sensors applet. It just displays the temperatures. When I open Gnome Sensors Applet preferences it lists libsensors. But Properties is disabled. Any idea how to enable it.

    in the sensors tab, expand Libsensors
    and play around with it as much as you want!!!

    Many laptop motherboards don't have very good (or sometimes any at all) sensor support. On this Toshiba laptop that I've been fixing for the owner, I can only get 2 temperature readings so far ("temp1" and [CPU] "THRM" and that actually sounds pretty good from what I've been reading about Toshiba laptops, fans, and temperature troubles).

    I got a bunch of error messages while trying to get the sensors-applet installed using a lot of trial and error...
