GNOME Sensors Applet is an applet for the GNOME Panel to display readings from hardware sensors, including CPU temperature, fan speeds and voltage readings under Linux.
- ACPI thermal zones, via the Linux kernel ACPI modules
- Linux kernel i2c modules (for kernel 2.6).
- lm_sensors and i2c packages (for kernel 2.4)
- libsensors (provided by lm_sensors package)
- Linux kernel i8k module (for Dell Inspiron Laptops).
- Linux kernel ibm-acpi module
- Linux kernel PowerPC modules therm_adt746x and therm_windtunnel.
- Linux kernel iMac G5 Windfarm module.
- hddtemp daemon for reading temperatures from S.M.A.R.T. equipped disks.
- Linux kernel Omnibook module (for HP and Toshiba Satellite laptops).
- NVIDIA graphics cards via libNVCtrl (supplied with nvidia-settings)
- ATI graphics cards via aticonfig
- Linux kernel sonypi module (for Sony Vaio laptops)
