Psensor Hardware Temperature Indicator Updated

Psensor is a simple tool for monitoring hardware sensors, including temperatures and fan speeds.

It displays a curve for each sensor, alerts user using desktop notifications and application indicator when a temperature is too high. Psensor also integrates nicely with Unity as it can display current temperature as a badge on Unity launcher.

A new version of Psensor has been released with following changes:
  • GTK v2 is no more supported.
  • Added support for libatasmart for sata disk monitoring (–use-libsatasmart option).
  • New design for the preferences window
  • Added support of fahrenheit.
  • Measures of the sensors are logged when log level is set to 3.
  • Improved desktop notification.
  • Improved translations support (Chinese, French, Hungarian, Brazilian, Italian, Russian, Serbian  Ukrainian  Slovenian and German).
  • Added low thresold support for alerts.
  • Added fan alert support.
  • Many bug fixes.
To install Psensor in Ubuntu, run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install psensor

Note that Psensor will only work if your hardware sensors are properly detected by the system. To enable hardware sensors, run the following commands:
