    Question Checking CPU Temp.

    I hope this is the right section for this....

    Is there some way to find out what temperature my cpu is generating? Possibly, something I can run from the terminal? I checked my panel options (XFCE) , and if there's one there,,I missed it.

    Re: Checking CPU Temp.

    Try psensor (I think it needs lm-sensors for cpu temp)

    and/or

    Have a look here for using sensors.
    The linked guide is for conky but the first part shows how to set up, once lm-sensors is installed.

    Basically
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors psensor
    then run
    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    answering Yes to all prompts.


    Then run
    Code:
    sensors
    If no output, reboot and try again.

    eg
    Code:
    glen@Raring:~$ sensors
    nouveau-pci-0100

    temp1:        +35.0°C  (high = +95.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)

    in2:          +3.38 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    +5V:          +3.01 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    in4:          +3.09 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)

    in6:          +3.38 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
    5VSB:         +3.02 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)

    No problem.
    It can be hard to tell which reading is your cpu temp.
    Just check your cpu temp in your BIOS and use the one that matches.
    Opening something like firefox and system monitor together, should see the temp go up 5-6 degrees.

    Usually, it is not so hard:
