This tool is able to read a lot of chips. Must be used a GUI software (ie: Psensor)

You just type "sensors" in the terminal and you get a reading. OK you can do more but that's a start.

Like it. I run "sensors-detect" in terminal, and simply use 'hardware sensor monitor' panel applet to monitor.

Do you have a few hours to spend to try to figure out how to install this? It does not appear in your menu after you download and install it with software manager, nor after you try to "apt-get install" it with the terminal. I gave up and tried Psensor which installs instantly, appears in the "system tools" part of your start menu, and works great.

Basic "service" to feed data to apps that do the display work. My temps seem to report way above reality though (HP i7 laptop).

No graphical user interface. The wiki wasn't clear to me on how to get started. Looks like it will take lots of time to get it working.
