You have to install lm-sensors. Open a terminal and run this command.
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Next run "sensors-detect" and answer YES to all YES/no questions.
Then test the sensor output using the lm-sensors utility "sensors".
What you can monitor depends on what your motherboard supports and what lm-sensors found.
You may have to reboot at different stages of this process.
Lm-sensors can be tricky to configure correctly so be prepared to Google.

Right click the panel,
select "add to panel",
select "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor",
(This is how it's done in Mint Main Gnome Edition, I don't know how it's done on
the Fluxbox Edition, but "CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor" is the name
of the utility.)
Things are more like they are now than they ever were before.
