Customzing Xfce (4)

Playing with Xfce : part 4, sensors plugin

Make sure to have a look to :

package : xfce4-sensors-plugin (needs hddtemp to work at full potential)
descriptionlets you monitor your hardware sensors, such as CPU temperature,hard drive temp, motherboard voltage, ...

overview in a few screen shots : 

NB : issues with hddtemp
if hddtemp is installed but the plugin notifies an issue, it might be due to permissions, fix them using the following:
sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp

Enjoy !!
