Is there a way to configure psensor so the temperatures read out in real time in the panel so it could be read at a glance? So far, in order to read the temperature I have to click on the applet indicator. On 12.04 I had a Hardware Indicator Sensors by Alex Murray that did that job fine but it doesn't work in 14.04 (can anyone verify? I'm getting an "E: Unable to locate package indicator-sensors"). I ended up starting to use psensor again and it only shows the temp in Unity (my Unity is on auto hide).
It has been added in psensor since the release 1.0.2.
Basically, with a terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jfi/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install psensor
Try this: Go to your Dash and open Software and Updates. Go the other software tab and try to add it from there by pressing add. Add "ppa:alexmurray/indicator-sensors-daily" excluding the quotes and add. Check the box next to the source in the list of sources. Open a terminal and try:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indicator-sensors
If that doesnt work, try to install it from Synaptic Package Manager.
(To get it):
sudo apt-get install synaptic
Open Synaptic and search indicator-sensors. Right click on it and click Mark For Installation. Click Apply and let it install.
