SENSORS in GKRELLM
In the previous tip
we told you how to set
up LM-Sensors, this time we will show you how to let them show in
Gkrellm ( our favorite system monitor http://www.gkrellm.net
click the top of the Gkrellm GUI and you will get the Configuration
GUI. Under the heading "Builtins" you will see the "Sensors" . . .
before you configured LM-Sensors the little triangles in front of
"Temperatures", "Fans" and "Voltages" were not there . . . but now they
are, and unfolding them shows you the sensor-chip that was loaded at
Ticking the boxes of the ones you want to show in Gkrellm is the first
Then click on the "label" . . that makes it possible to change the text
of the label shown in the Gkrellm GUI.
can change the order of appearance by dragging the lines up or down.
Also you can fine tune the temperature ( if the chip is slightly off )
with the "factor" and "Offset" ( The mobo of my test system needs this
badly because it is really wacky )
Then there is the option to choose the location, if you want the CPU
temps directly under the CPU usage monitor.
that, press the "Alert" button and set at which max temperatures you
desire warnings. ( or minimum Fan speed, voltage etc. )
Now press "OK" and the job is done !
