    Question Sensors Applets gone from Synaptic-How to get HDU temps in Conky?

    I added "lmsensors", "sensord" and "xsensors" but still no temps. This woks fine in 10.04.

    Thanks, will check that out tomorrow. That should work in Conky, too?

    Did you run
    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    after installing lm_sensors?
    Using Sensors


    ...and for hddtemp make sure it is installed as SUID root, so it can be used without "sudo".
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp

    Working fine here in 12.04 in my conky.


    ***NB. There is a bug in the current conky package for 12.04 where execi commands don't run
    until your computer uptime is greater than your execi interval.
    eg. After a fresh boot, if you have an ${execi 1800... command in
    your conky you will get an output of "(null)" until your computer uptime
    reaches half an hour (1800secs).
