    This worked great for me. I added it to the panel with a right mouse click on the panel and choosing "Add to Panel ..." from the drop down menu, then choosing from the pop-up window "Computer Temperature Monitor".

    I was asked a question during the whole installation in Terminal though, and I wasn't quite sure what to answer ... something about whether I wanted whatever to activate on start-up. The default answer was "no", but I chose "yes". Not sure what all that was about. I should have saved the contents of the Terminal to give more details. If anyone else follows this procedure, perhaps they could paste the result in this thread.

    It asked you if you wish to activate the service that lets you monitor hard disk temperature as well. If you want to keep an eye on that, yes is the correct answer.

    I tried to attempt this on another laptop, using a Live CD, so that I could help "fix" my own omission, but it didn't work: I got stuck with this message:
    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install sensors-applet
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package sensors-applet
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
    I got around this by opening the Ubuntu Software Center from the Panel "Applications" Menu, and then adding the System Profiler and Benchmark application (which I already was using on the first laptop, before I got the applet thanks to this thread). That fixed it, so I've saved a copy of the Terminal output. Since it's a bit long, here's a screenshot of the message that pops up during the installation from Terminal, and another message that pops up if you answer "Yes":

    Ah! Thanks for the clarification! Somehow "Yes" seemed to make more sense to me, even if it wasn't the default answer, but it didn't stop me from feeling stupid afterwards!

    When you answer "Yes", there's also a pop-up window, along with the two I attached to my message above, about the delay in seconds between checks, with a default value of "0", which means that the temperature will not be logged, I think.

    Ubuntu 10.10, Asus P8P67PRO & Intel i7-2600K ... no sensors detected.

    FWIW I know what I'm doing, I think

    Ran sudo sensors-detect that's how I know no sensors detected and yes, I did try the "sensors" command AND the restart thing.
    No Joy

    Anyone interested still in lm-sensors?

    Re: CPU temperature monitor?

    IIRC, the p8p67pro uses a fairly new sensor chip. Post the output of sensors-detect.

    # sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100)
    # System: System manufacturer System Product Name
    # Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8P67 PRO

    This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
    to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
    and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
    unless you know what you're doing.

    Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
    Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): y
    Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595... No
    VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors... No
    VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors... No
    AMD K8 thermal sensors... No
    AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... No
    AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No
    Intel Core family thermal sensor... No
    Intel Atom thermal sensor... No
    Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor... No
    VIA C7 thermal sensor... No
    VIA Nano thermal sensor... No

    Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
    standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
    Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'... No
    Trying family `SMSC'... No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... Yes
    Found unknown chip with ID 0xc333
    (logical device B has address 0x290, could be sensors)
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'... No
    Trying family `SMSC'... No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No
    Trying family `ITE'... No

    Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
    through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
    We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
    there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
    interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
    interfaces? (YES/no): y
    Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0... No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8... No

    Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
    We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
    safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
    ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No
    Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No
    Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No
    Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290... No

    Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
    monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
    reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
    on some systems.
    Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): y
    Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:1c22 at 0000:00:1f.3.
    Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.
    Module i2c-dev loaded successfully.

    Sorry, no sensors were detected.

    Like I said ... no sensors detected

    Hope this helps .

    Listening very, very hard (()) and with both ears now

    (IIRC Asus P8P67PRO & Intel i7-2600K have been around for some months ?)
