I've an ATi Mobility HD4650 and I'd like to detect its sensor.

I've installed lm-sensors, xsensors and the Hardware Sensors Indicator, but I can't find my GPU sensor.

Here are some screenshots:

Also, if I use the aticonfig --od-gettemperature command, I get this error:

ERROR - Get temperature failed for the Default Adapter - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 x64.

Try removing the proprietary video drivers. The open source ones generally make the sensor available. – psusi Jun 15 '12 at 14:31
I'll try that, I'm using the fglrx, not the post release one. – Hugo Correia Jun 16 '12 at 11:44

You can get the reading using aticonfig --odgt.
