First of all, I have to say that I am new to Linux . I am using Linux Mint + Cinnamom and I love it, but I have an important problem.
My laptop has Windows 7 installed, so I run Linux Mint in a VMware virtual machine. But when I am in LinuxMint, the laptop gets very overheated, and I am afraid of damaging the hardware. So, some questions come here:
How can I know the temperature of the HW components? Any application for this?
And of course, how could I avoid this overheating?
