Ubuntu :: Lm-sensors Will Not Detect Any Sensors On HP Desktop

Mar 3, 2011

I can't for the life of me get the xsensors to work. I installed lm-sensors, the applet and also xsensors.I followed everything on this guide:URl... Went through it more than twice and a couple of restarts. I just can't figure out what's wrong.When I run "sensors" nothing is found. I ran the sensors configuration and it only found one device to add to /etc/modules. Please see the trace below, I would be very grateful if you can help me find the fix for this! The desktop is an HP Pavilion a730n with a Pentium4 processor.

Software :: Lm-sensors Does Not Find All Sensors?

Jun 21, 2010

I would like to use lm-sensors with my new PC.With my old one lm-sensors showed all sensors of CPU, GPU, wattage and Fan.With the new AMD64 (kernel 2.6.32-5 on Debian Squeeze) I get only the temperature of the GPU and the HDD.The only found sensor is "Fintek F71882FG/F71883FG Super IO Sensors"No embedded "AMD [...] thermal sensors" found in sensors-detect How can I fix it?sensors-detect

Ubuntu :: Sensors Applet Always Shows 40C?

Apr 14, 2011

I installed lm_sensors via Synapt & the Sensors Applet on the panel, but that applet shows me an invariable 40�C for 2 temperatures - 'CPU' & 'temp1'.Now I know it can't read the CPU temperature (long story, the CPU fan is hard-wired to 6v & there is no temperature feedback...) but it should be able to find a couple of other useful temperatures.The same PC in XP uses Speedfan which indicates plausible temperatures for (I think) Case & Hard Drive. (Temp2 & HD0 in the attached)I wonder what I have failed to do & why I cannot see Case or HD temps in Ubuntu?In terminal, I ran sensors-detect which went OK until the last bit where it said:

"~$ /etc/init.d/module-init-tools start Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) utility, e.g. service module-init-tools start...etc" I don't follow that, but I have checked that I have it87 in both /etc/modules & in lib/modules/.../hwmon

Ubuntu :: CPU Fan - Sensors Not Detected / Loaded Properly

Dec 25, 2010

I am having difficulty setting up lm-sensors so that I can monitor fan speed and temps. I have been following theHow-To on the forums, but it appears I don't have the sensors detected/loaded properly.

This is the current output:
ronald@ronald-Satellite-L505:~$ sensors
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +69.0C (crit = +114.0C)
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +63.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1: +57.0C (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)

Below is a copy of what I have been trying in terminal. Here is a walkthrough of sensors-detect:
ronald@ronald-Satellite-L505:~$ sudo sensors-detect
[sudo] password for ronald:
# sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100)
# System: TOSHIBA Satellite L505 (laptop)
# Board: TOSHIBA Portable PC .....
Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are loaded. You may want to run '/etc/init.d/module-init-tools start' to load them.

Possibly necessary info:

General :: Temperature Monitoring On Dell - No Sensors Detected?

Jun 27, 2010

I have a Dell Precision M4500, Intel Core i5 CPU, running Linux (Ubuntu Lucid), and would like to keep an eye on CPU temperature. I've tried lm-sensors: sensors-detect didn't find any sensors; following its hint ("This is relatively common on laptops, where thermal management is handled by ACPI rather than the OS.") I tried acpi -V but got nothing thermal. The Gnome panel applet "Hardware Sensors Monitor" reports on GPU temperature but nothing else.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sensors-AMD CPU Temperature Monitoring

Dec 4, 2010

I have just recently installed opensuse 11.3 on my computer. I have switched from Ubuntu and have been trying to get things configured similar to what it was. One problem I have encountered is with installing sensors and k10temp, the module needed to monitor my CPU temp. within Linux. I have an AMD sempron and a biostar mcp6p m2+ motherboard. I have installed package "sensors" and have run the sensors-detect and it went through and found k10temp that I would need to load within the kernel for this to work properly. I had this working in Ubuntu, but not sure how to do it in openSuse. I have tried compiling the k10temp source, running modprobe k10temp and received no output, and looked around the conf files, but not sure how to go about doing it?

Debian :: K10temp Module For Lm-sensors?

Jan 6, 2011

After I ran sensors-detect, it said that İ needed k10temp module to be compiled, so I searched some forums and got required stuff. However, before compiling it, I added the gnome applet for sensors to the panel, and surprisingly it shows the cpu and motherboard temperatures. How reliable it is? Do I still need to compile k10temp? (I will compile it since I don't want to use a kernel from experimental repo).My kernel is 2.6.32-5-amd64, TestingCPU: AMD Phenom 2 x4 955 BE

Ubuntu :: Can't Seem To Get Lm-sensors Display / Applet

May 6, 2010

I had previously installed lm-sensors and the associated files on my Lattitude 2100 when I was running 8.10 and got a great little bargraph readout thing at the bottom of the screen that helped me monitor system temperatures. Now that I've upgraded to lucid lynx netbook, I can't seem to get the same thing going. I installed the lm-sensors etc. but the applet/readout/display whatever you want to call it, is nowhere to be found.

Ubuntu :: Changing Fan Speed With Lm-sensors?

Dec 6, 2010

control my cpu fan speed? It's really loud, and I'm not stressing the CPU at all, but it seems to be running at 110% all the time.

I've tried going through some old posts related to lm-sensors but nothing seems to work.

I'm using an Asus motherboard (M4A88TD-M), an AMD 1075t six-core processor, and I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed. Ive run sensors-detect, followed the onscreen prompts... the output looks like this:

# sensors-detect revision 5818 (2010-01-18 17:22:07 +0100)
# System: System manufacturer System Product Name

Ubuntu :: LM Sensors - Cannot Find CPU Temperature

Dec 29, 2010

I have tried lm-sensors and a few others, firefox just crashed.
Phenom II X6 1090T
MSI-890FXA-GD70 motherboard
Ubuntu 10.10

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +0.0C (high = +70.0C)

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done. Just press ENTER to continue:
Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
* Chip `AMD Family 10h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)
No modules to load, skipping modules configuration.
Unloading i2c-dev... OK

There is a debugging panel on my motherboard, and I think that that displays the CPU temperature, although I am not sure.

Ubuntu :: Sensors Not Working & CPU Speed Control?

Feb 21, 2010

I installed Karmic 64-bit on a new Phenom X4 Quad-Core PC. I've replaced the stock CPU cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper TX3, enabled all fan control settings in the BIOS, switched their profiles on silent, enabled the Cool n' Quiet option as well but my CPU fan is still noisy and seem to be running up to the max number of RPM, thus ignoring BIOS specifications. Besides this I can tell there is something wrong with it since even the CPU is on idle or with just the regular browsing, media player operations, PC sometimes freezes or is automatically rebooted .

I installed lm-sensors and went through all the sensors-detect operations (output attached to this post) but it doesn't show anything else but the CPU and HDD temperature which is always 40 Celsius degrees.

Ubuntu :: Lm-sensors Doesn't Show Fan Speeds

Mar 12, 2010

I'm running ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on a Dell Latitude E6400 with the following configuration:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53GHz, 3MB L2 Cache 1066 MHz
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator x4500HD
250 GB Hard Drive SATA 7200RPM

I'm experiencing overheating problems, after just 15-20 minutes of minimal use (surfing the internet, not even watching flash vids or any other vids). The same laptop under Windows 7 64 bit stayed really cool.

I've read several posts here and followed this manual: [URL] to try to control the fans (I only installed the lm-sensors and ran the sensors command, I didn't do anything beyond that). Specifically what I did was install lm-sensors (via apt-get), ran sensors-detect which advised me to add the coretemp module to /etc/modules, which I did.

However when running sensors the only information I get is the overall temperature and the temperature of each of the cores.

why I'm not getting fan speed info when running sensors? Also is there a way to find out if more modules needs to be added to /etc/modules?

Ubuntu :: Sensors / Remove Applet From Panel

Jun 3, 2010

I installed Sensors Applet & hddtemp. Installation was smooth, all of my devices were automatically detected and all seemed good.Then I restart the computer, and when everything comes back up, the processor, MB, and GPU are all working (showing a temperature) but none of the (6) hard drives are showing a temperature. After fiddling around with it I found that removing the applet from the panel, and then adding it back again fixes the problem. But then the next time I restart the computer it breaks again.

Ubuntu :: GKrellM Not Sensing Voltage/Fan Sensors?

Jan 13, 2011

GKrellM worked fine under 9.04.W/ 10.04 it works but does not sense the Fan or Voltage sensors.I transplanted the old folder over to /home after downloading GKrellM, hddtemp, and lm-sensors thru Synaptic.Ran the hddtemp and lm sensors in terminal w/ no problems.Running sensors revealed all inputs: cpu temps, fan speeds, andmobo voltages.GKrellM downloaded was ver 2.3.4 while my old folder data was 2.3.2. Sensor config file is same format just that the old config file has all the voltage/fan pointers assigned as well.

Weird thing is that GKrellM will overwrite the sensor-config file (that has ALL the sensor defined inputs pasted into it) after going into the program and selecting Configuration. It reverts to the sensor-config file created after running lm-sensors and hddtemp under 10.04.So it's autowriting itself and not picking up the fan/voltage inputs.Displaying the data thru the Sensor Applet in the Desktop panel is OK but I prefer having everything on GKrellM. It's a much cleaner, easy to view system. Anybody got a clue why GKrellM is overwriting the sensor-config file. That should be static, unlike the user-config file.

Ubuntu :: Hardware Sensors Monitor Not Detecting Hdd?

Jun 30, 2011

After several attempts, the Hardware Sensors Monitor cannot detect hdd. The following is what was done. I originally installed gnome sensor applet through ubuntu software center and without paying much attention I also proceeded not to have the hddtemp boot up. After adding to the panel the hardware sensors monitor, the hddtemp was not there so..ive proceeded to do the following in the terminal:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp
sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp
sudo sensors-detect and yes to all
sudo modprobe..there were two chip drivers

when i did sudo hddtemp /dev/sda the temp is detected.I added back the applet to the panel but the sensor is still not there.

sudo dpkg -s hddtemp also returned the status that everything was installed. i rebooted i double checked in the synpatics manager if all the programs are installed. I have lm-sensors, hddtemp and sensors-applet. in the command line..i did dmesg removing and re-adding the applet to the panel proved futile and still cannot see hdd temps. Where did I go wrong?

Hardware :: Serial Comm When Reading Sensors?

Apr 9, 2010

I have a configuration consisting of:

1. my Atmega168 MCU connected to some servo motors and sensors, and
2. my Linksys WRT54GL router working under OpenWRT Linux WhiteRussian 9.
3. they have a working and tested serial connection.

Now my problem.I open a file descriptor to my serial port called /dev/tts/1, and read a sensor (the second sensor commented, as you see bellow). This works perfect. Then I uncomment the next

sensor, but the code continues to behave as if I didn't uncomment it!If before the reading of the next sensor I first close my original file descriptor and reopen it, it starts to work right, but this is inefficient, as I have various sensors and it is not logical to open

Ubuntu Installation :: Conky Sensors Not Working In Natty?

atlast i downloaded 64 bit version of natty. (i m currently using 10.10 32 bit). before i go for a clean install, i wished to test natty (the stable release) by running it from my usb stick. i was able to boot into it and natty identified my wi-fi with a breeze. i wanted to test some configurations that i had customized in maverick. i installed conky in natty and copied the conky script that i used in maverick. i also installed the necessary sensors. now the hitch is the sensors are unable to detect the temperature. is it coz i am running natty from a usb stick or some bug is there in this part ?

Hardware :: Building System - Interface With Car Sensors And Controls

Jun 25, 2010

My parents have given me a free pass to play around with their old Saab 900 Turbo and what I'd really like to do is put a small linux computer in there as an experiment (and application, ultimately). For this to be a realistically useful project I really should make it interface with all the cars sensors and controls e.g. speedometer, fuel gauge, mileage, thermostat etc. I assume that since these are analogue meters they use an electromagnetic dial? It should be possible then (and without too much effort) to hook it up to an input device like the Arduino? I don't really know because it's been a long time since I studied electronics properly. I've already found a touch screen, I'm fairly sure I know what computer I'm going to use (SheevaPlug) and I'll probably use debian with xfce for the OS.
