    Fan speeds in Gkrellm not selectable

    Hello everyone,

    I am having an odd problem. I can't get Gkrellm to show my fan speeds anymore since reinstalling Ubuntu. I have tried 9.10 and 10.04 and tried installing packages to maybe get the drop down to show up for fan speed but still nothing. I have installed Xsensors and that shows fan speeds correctly but I want to show them in Gkrellm like I used to have.

    My system:

    Ubuntu 10.04 with all updates
    Intel i7 920 at 3.8G
    Asus P6T Deluxe V2 (bios 1003)
    12G Corsair ram, 7-7-7-20, 1600Mhz
    750 watt power supply
    6X Noiseblocker 120mm fans. 2 on CPU heatsink, 2 pulling air in and 2 pushing air out.
    Nvidia 250GTS video card
    3 HD's.

    Now every other temp gauge is working like it used to but the fan speed monitor.

    Any tips/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
    sudo sensors-detect
    select yes to all the options and enter when asked
    reboot and your sensors will be back.

    Thanks for the response but that doesn't help. I have lm-sensors installed and done sensors-detect before and just did it again to make sure. Anyone else have any other thoughts?

    You can not do this currently because gkrellm-i8k is not in the repositories. I have submitted a bug in launchpad but it has fallen on deaf ears.

    i8k is for dell computers, and it is in synaptic on Karmic and Lucid.

    Ok, so it appears this is a bigger problem then what I first thought.

    18k is not in the Lucid repositories. According to the notes under i8kutils (utilities for Dell Inspiron and Latitude laptops)
    The programs require the kernel module i8k.o which can be compiled from the package sources or found in Linux kernel 2.4.14 and later versions.
