How do I get the CPU temperature?

Best Answer

  • Install lm-sensors Install lm-sensors

    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors 
    

    After installation type the following in terminal

    sudo sensors-detect
    

    You may also need to run

    sudo service kmod start
    

    It will ask you few questions. Answer Yes for all of them. Finally to get your CPU temperature type sensors in your terminal.

    sensors
    

    Output:

    To see HDD temperature Install hddtemp Install hddtemp

    sudo apt-get install hddtemp
    

    Output:

    $ sudo hddtemp /dev/sda        
    /dev/sda: ST3160813AS: 34°C
