More info on this "Firejail" business please

Could someone please give more info on this "Firejail" business? All I can find is SourceForge download links and a firejail.wordpress.com site which doesn't give very good information. I found Firejail in Software manager but it was outdated and I couldn't find Firetools. I found Firetools and got ...

Re: Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

You really know your stuff. Okay I did as you suggested and it works, displaying the temperature, but the temperature doesn't fluctuate. I use the drive and it sits at a constant 35c. This has me baffled and I did some searching and the only thing I can come up with is this: (My readout) Smart Log f...

Re: Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

What output do you get from nvme smart-log /dev/nvme0n1 ? If it includes the temperature you could isolate that output with grep e.g something like this - you'd probably need to fine tune the grep parameter. nvme smart-log /dev/nvme0n1 | grep "^temperature" That actually worked! GT72-6QD ~ $ sudo n...

Re: Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

Yeah found that post yesterday and got the same readout using nvme-cli. It does display temperatures of the NVMe SSD but nothing I can find to translate that to work in Conky unfortunately. Even in his example (the .gif image he posted) there is no SSD temperature readout being displayed. The only r...

Help needed getting SSD temperature displayed

I want to display HDD temperatures in Conky but I've hit a bit of a snag. I followed this tutorial: https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=789 and I have a HDD 'sda' displaying the temperature. But that hard drive is my storage drive. My main hard drive is a SSD. I did some searching with th...

Well the error log was saying there was a graphics memory issue, which translated to me meant drivers. I changed drivers and everything worked as normal. Have you tried different g...
