Hello nice community,
I have a problem to get hddtemp on Solus. Can someone help please?
if it's just cpu/drive temp and a hardware monitor, then in the software center
*linux-tools (intel only it says).
there are other programs as well. I believe there a CLI apps, too, unsure which.
There is lm_sensors which i think is installed by default ,not sure.You can install it from the repository
and use it in a terminal.Once you run it, it displays the temperatures it reads but only for the time
it starts. If you want it to refresh the temperature values you can combine it with the watch command.
watch -n 2 sensors in the terminal
and read the temperatures every 2 seconds.
watch -n 2 sensors
This one i used for conky on my previous distro. I got psensor its cool but it it GUI only, while hddtemp is console output just like sensors.
I downloaded the source tarball and compiled it, now it work. No problems at all when installing. Thanks anyway for responses 😃
Depending on what you plan to do with the data, the acpi package may work and it's available in the Solus repo. Description:
Attempts to replicate the functionality of the 'old' apm command on ACPI systems, including battery and thermal information.
