    CPU temperature monitor?

    Can someone point me to a good CPU temperature monitor? I'm going to overclock my quad and want to keep an easy on it.

    Perhaps you could use screenlets,,(sensors or ringsensors)
    When your thread it solved: go to thread tools > Mark this thread as solved
    for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.

    And then they asked: what's a pbkac error?

    I installed computertemp from Synaptic and it found the sensor automatically.

    computemp? I tried to apt-get that, it didn't work.
    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    did you run sensors-detect after installing?

    open a terminal and run the following:

    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    follow the prompts. when its complete, simply run:

    Code:
    sensors

    Re: CPU temperature monitor?

    Hi, I'm having problems with computertemp - I can't get it running. Done sensors detect and stuff, but applet refuses to show anything - it stays redcrossed. When I write sensors in terminal I get the temp reading. Other apps also show it correctly, but I want it on the pannel. Any suggestions pls... I'm with Ubuntu 10.04 lts on Lenovo 3000 N200.

    Use the GNOME Sensors Applet. Install it by clicking on the link, or by running
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sensors-applet
    You can then add it to your panel by right-clicking on empty space on one of your panels, and choosing "Add to panel", from there, look (or search) for "Hardware Sensors Monitor", and drag it where you want it.
