This is a little different than the common Natty temperature applet question. I've given Unity a shot and have reverted back to Ubuntu Classic. The one thing that is still not working is the temperature panel indicator (on 2 different laptops). It reports 'No Thermal Monitor Support' and shows a big red 'X'. The temperature sensors are working as GKrellM can still report temperature properly. Does anyone have a solution?

The specific applet is the 'computertemp' applet. After Jorge asked for more details, I tried the other one, the 'sensors-applet', and it actually works correctly.

Details added, thanks Jorge. – Nerdfest May 3 '11 at 2:46
You need to revise the title and contents as this has nothing to do with application indicators and instead involves notification-area (systray) applets. – Cas May 3 '11 at 17:53
I'm specifically trying to get computertemp working. It has a nicer presentation (graphs change color as temps increase, etc). I mention the other one as it shows that the underlying sensors are reporting values. – Nerdfest May 3 '11 at 21:01

Your first port of call should be the application help page

Thanks, didn't realize it had one. – Nerdfest May 3 '11 at 19:23
