I am trying to use conky to minitor my system but it is not showing CPU temperature, lm-sensors, hddtemp are installed, I answered yes to all questions running sensors-detect and at the end it shows: "Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are loaded. You may want to run '/etc/init.d/kmod start' to load them."

I loaded the modules name:

/etc/init.d/kmod start [info] Loading kernel module loop. [info] Loading kernel module w83627ehf. [info] Loading kernel module w83627ehf.

and running sensors shows: sensors k10temp-pci-00c3 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +22.0°C (high = +70.0°C) (crit = +70.0°C, hyst = +67.0°C)

then I look for the modules by module-assisstant as root and it could not find any of them. What should I do to have the CPU temp on conky? thanks in advance.

Please see this thread and note the answer by JeanFI.

Basically it amounts to needing to review the hardware specification which will tell you the output that relates to the CPU.

To add the display to conky once you are aware of the value (using k10temp-pci-00c3 in this example) you would insert:

$ exec sensors | grep 'k10temp-pci-00c3' | awk '{print $3}'}

The grep pipe is used to search the output of sensors and display only information that matches.

The awk pipe is used to select the correct field from the output of sensors/grep. This means that you can substitute $3 for another value if it is not displaying the correct part (i.e $1,$2,$all).
