Software to monitor temperatures

#1 Post by Tasurinchi » Wed Nov 17, 2010 5:01 pm

Hi Thinkpadders

I've just changed the thermal paste of the fan in my T43p. I would like to know which software can be recommended to undervolt the CPU and to monitor the temperatures. I'm using currently Ubuntu 10.10.

Thanks in advance!

If you just want to check the temperatures every once in a while a

Code: Select all

more /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal
(or thereabouts) should do the trick.

If you want to monitor the temperature constantly I would suggest conky, which needs some work to set up, or any of the panel applets.

Thanks moronoxyd! I'll try them tonight. First the console option, I think I did a quick try to conky before but found it no so intuitive (Was too lazy to learn how to deal with it).

Regards

This is kind of cool:

http://sensors-applet.sourceforge.net/

It is a task bar where you can select which temps you want to display. It also shows fan speed.
