I have ubuntu 12.04 and KDE. I already installed "lm-sensors", "hardware sensors indicator" and "Psensors" but none works well for me. I also know a couple of commands to find gpu temperature on terminal but I don't need that, I need a graphical application that works with kde to use.

Do you know something that helps me?

My card is MSI R6870 Hawk (from ATI original HD6870) and I have fglrx drivers


  • I've not used KDE recently but they have loads of Plasmoids, some do system monitoring. Have you tried any? – Tom Brossman Sep 9 '12 at 20:18
  • yes, I tried all plasmoids with sys monitor but no gpu temperature – Frank Sep 9 '12 at 20:34
  • Can you edit the question to include the type of video card please? Also, see this similar question for ideas. It may not be possible depending on what card it is. – Tom Brossman Sep 9 '12 at 20:38

SuperKaramba ?


What is SuperKaramba?

SuperKaramba is, in simple terms, a tool that allows you to easily create interactive eye-candy on your KDE desktop.

KDE Plasma support

Package: plasma-scriptengine-superkaramba

Description: SuperKaramba theme support for the Plasma Workspaces This package provides SuperKaramba scriptengine for Plasma. It brings support for the SuperKaramba interactive desktop applets, called "themes", to the Plasma desktop. This package is part of the KDE SC utilities module.



Description: This widget will display current ATI screen card fan speed and temperature. It will also allow the modification of the fan speed in 5% increments.

At here

Downloading the widget - unpacking it - starting the Karamba: Alt+F2 karamba. Adding the local theme...

Seems to work at here.
