I'm editing a Conky theme. I would like it to output the processor temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.
~/.conkyrc file, the command
sensors | grep 'Core 0' | cut -c18-19 is used to find the temperature in Celsius for the first processor core. I want to use
bc to compute this (give it
bc wants just absolute values, and I see no way to pass it program output. If I try to use something like
temp=$(sensors | grep 'Core 0' | cut -c18-19) & echo 'temp*9/5+32' | bc, it ends up giving me 32 because it registers "temp" as a 0.
