    HOW TO: How to compile and install Gnome panel sensors-applet

    Sutekh
    After trying to install the XML parser, got this errors
    Here's the last part of the log, too long to paste here

    Expat.xs:2194: error: syntax error before ‘)’ token
    Expat.xs:2197: error: ‘parser’ undeclared (first use in this function)
    make[1]: *** [Expat.o] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/...../.cpan/build/XML-Parser-2.34/Expat'
    make: *** [subdirs] Error 2
    /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
    Running make test
    Can't test without successful make
    Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

    That doesn't sound encouraging does it? What exactly are you trying to install? For the most part its alot easier to install via Synaptic or a .deb rather than from source.

    Re: HOW TO: How to compile and install Gnome panel sensors-applet

    Everything worked well but I have 2 questions:

    1. For some reason my main drive /dev/sda is not listed in the HD tempoptions...just an ide drive that i have in the machine. The sata drive is new and i'm quite sute its SMART enabled.

    2. Is there anyway to change the labels that that the panel applet uses? Tem3 is my mobo sensor and i'd like to display that instead of "temp3".

    Thanks,

    mak

    PS: Good how to!

    checking for XML:arser... configure: error: XML:arser perl module is required for intltool
    Did you miss this step?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libxml-parser-perl
    1. For some reason my main drive /dev/sda is not listed in the HD tempoptions...just an ide drive that i have in the machine. The sata drive is new and i'm quite sute its SMART enabled.
    No clue, sorry. What does

    Code:
    sudo hddtemp /dev/sda
    do?

    2. Is there anyway to change the labels that that the panel applet uses? Tem3 is my mobo sensor and i'd like to display that instead of "temp3".
    That one I know. Right-click on the sensors applet in your panel, select the 'Sensors' tab, select right-arrow next to the sensor corresponding to your mobo (it's i2c-sys for me, but this will vary) to drop down its submenu. Then select the Tem3 line, and, then select the label and it'll become an edit box and you can change it. (Don't double-click quickly -- it's like renaming a file in Windows.)

    How blind can I be. Too much excited.
    Will update you Zed.

    BTW I installed from Synaptic the SMART sensors, X-sensor(which is running fine but too large Graphics). Is it just OK?

    Great now it is working
    Although on the "make" command it gave me this errors

    main.c:40: fatal error: opening dependency file .deps/main.Tpo: Permission denied
    compilation terminated.
    make[2]: *** [main.o] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/j813/Desktop/Downloads/sensors-applet-1.5.2/src'
    make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/j813/Desktop/Downloads/sensors-applet-1.5.2/src'
    make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1


    (which I just ignored & did the "sudo make install" command) & seem to be working
