I am running Bianca on an Athlon 1400 system, and this processor runs very hot. I need to monitor the cpu temp, as well as cpu fan speed.
In GTK+, one command is gkrellm , but that interface is a bit tedious. Is there a command for gnome that calls the cpu temp, the value that you see in BIOS. I want to see this from Desktop. (I didnt get a response for gkrellm when I entered it from command line in Mint 2.2)
This computer is running at 55C with a large cooler and a case fan. Without case fan, the cpu temp was 58C. With smaller heatsink, the cpu temp was over 60C.
I'm looking for something like MBM (Motherboard Monitor, for Windows).
