When I run inix -F part of the output is

Quote:
Sensors: None detected - is lm-sensors installed and configured?
Info: Processes: 143 Uptime: 20:02 Memory: 288.3/2000.0MB Client: Shell inxi: 1.8.4
p4@Peppermint4 ~ $ sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
[sudo] password for p4:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
lm-sensors is already the newest version.
lm-sensors set to manually installed.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.


And then, as shown, I try installing lm-sensors, with the above results.

How do I get to the configuration/install?

Thanks

If you've installed lm-sensors, you now have to configure it/them.

Open a terminal and run:
Code:
sudo sensors-detect


and answer "yes" (Y) to all questions.

Ok, did that, and got the following results:

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: y

Driver `to-be-written':
* ISA bus, address 0x6e0
Chip `Nat. Semi. PC87372 Super IO Fan Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Driver `lm85':
* Bus `SMBus I801 adapter at d400'
Busdriver `i2c_i801', I2C address 0x2e
Chip `adm1027' (confidence: 6)

Note: there is no driver for Nat. Semi. PC87372 Super IO Fan Sensors yet.
Check http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for updates.

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
#----cut here----
# Chip drivers
lm85
#----cut here----
If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!

Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)y
Successful!

Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are
loaded. You may want to run 'service kmod start'
to load them.

Unloading i2c-dev... OK
Unloading i2c-i801... OK
Unloading cpuid... OK

p4@Peppermint4 ~ $ service kmod start
start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.31" (uid=1000 pid=2312 comm="start kmod ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init")
p4@Peppermint4 ~ $

It looks like I need to start the service, what is the syntax for that?
Also looked for /etc/modules, and cannot find it to verify that the line "lm85" was added.
Thanks for your help.

All you should need to do is reboot.

Then test that sensors are working with:
Code:
sensors

Tried
Code:
sensors

Get
Code:
p4@Peppermint4 ~ $ sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.


Ran through the detect process again,same results.
Found the /etc/modules file and took out all but one instance of the lm85 line and rebooted. Still the same, :?

What are you expecting (or trying to achieve) here ?

It looks like their are no supported sensors.

The lm85 driver is being loaded so the fan can be automatically controlled based on output from the temperature sensors .. but there are no temperature sensors :shock:

Here's an explanation of what the lm85 driver is for:
https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/hwmon/lm85

Is this a laptop ?

It is an old Gateway desktop, not in front of it right now so can't tell you exact specs.
Was just hoping to see/monitor cpu temps under different conditions.
So what I'm hearing is there are no sensors on the MOBO and thus there is no output? This is unsupported hardware?
Thanks again for your patience and taking the time to help with this.

It doesn't necessarily mean there are no sensors .. just that lm-sensors is unaware of them.

This does NOT necessarily mean the CPU hasn't got a thermal protection/cutout .. it may well have (in fact it probably does).

This isn't a huge deal, but do you know of any other monitoring software for temps? If not, no problem, I'll mark this solved and move on.
Thanks

What's the output from:
Code:
ls -a /sys/class/thermal

?
