I had a severe problem with GPU temperature in 12.04 and even later, and even if that seems gone in 14.04, I want to keep an eye on my GPU.
Is there a program that would display that, in the xfce-panel or otherwise?
lm-sensors and the Xfce panel Sensors Plugin, I can see some temperatures
but not the GPU. I use the Ubuntu radeon driver.
Also, I have installed
psensor: but no GPU
sensors in Terminal that info is not available:
At this Psensor page it reads: When the OpenSource ATI driver is used, the monitoring information is available throw lm-sensors ....
I have installed lm-sensors and following this advice I ran
sensors-detect and answered
yes to all questions there. In Psensor window now there is a new entry, and it's for radeon, but it's always zero.
Editing the names so as to display the chip name, it looks like so:
sensors command gives the same info as above.
