I am trying to get thermal information for my laptop using acpi -t command.

Unfortunately, It doesn't show thermal information. Here is output of the command acpi -V.

Battery 0: Unknown, 98%
Battery 0: design capacity 4400 mAh, last full capacity 4399 mAh = 99%
Adapter 0: on-line
Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 2: intel_powerclamp no state information available
Cooling 3: x86_pkg_temp no state information available
Cooling 4: Processor 0 of 10
Cooling 5: Processor 0 of 10

Is acpi package broken or something? I have also install lm-sensors and psensor package as well recently.

acpi -t output:

~$ acpi -t  

sensors output:

Adapter: ISA adapter  
Physical id 0:  +50.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)  
Core 0:         +49.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)  
Core 1:         +48.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)  

Adapter: Virtual device  
fan1:        2600 RPM

  • acpi -t doesn't output anything. sensors showing only cpu temperature. I have added output to the post.

  • I have the same experience on my machine. sensors can use the it87 (it8721-isa-0290) and k10temp-pci-00c3 to get temperature information, but my computer seems to be missing ACPI thermal zones even though ACPI Thermal is enabled in the kernel. Maybe some computers with buggy ACPI or old implementations from before it was popular to have thermal zones just don’t have it?
