    My bad.

    First install the following package:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
    Then run the following command
    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    Write Y to all the questions, and then, to check the laptop temperature, type
    Code:
    sensors
    or
    Code:
    acpi -t

    By the way, If you want a graphical representation of the Temperature, then first Install the sensors-applet package
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sensors-applet
    Then right-click on the top/bottom panel and select "Add to Panel". Add the "Hardware Sensors Monitor" applet. Thus the temperature meter will be set into the panel. You can configure what it displays by right-clicking the applet and selecting "Preferences".

    A large number of Linux users prefer to use Conky for showing various info of their computers in the background. Take a look of some examples:
    http://conky.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html

    But Conky setup required times. If you have time in your hand, you can try the following Conky setup in your computer:

    none of this works. it says wrong kernal loaded or none loaded, this is common on laptops. it is probably controlled by acpi

    acpi -t

    returns nothing. just next line awaiting new command follows..

    For me, the applets did not start working until I restarted my computer.

    I dont know if you use AWN or not..
    But there is a nice temperature gauge applet for AWN.

    (see the very bottom of my AWN dock/panel)
    Currently @ 57 C



    and if you click it, it will give readouts from other sensors as well.
