    Default aticonfig --od commands not functioning

    To put it simply I want to use aticonfig --od-gettemperature to get my gpu's temp for conky to display. Yet that command refuses to work.

    I'm running catalyst 10.4 with the radeon hd 4850. Here's the error message I get. It's as if the driver doesn't have support for reading my cards temperature which is absurd if true.

    Code:
    $ aticonfig --od-gettemperature
    ERROR - Get temperature failed for the Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

    $ aticonfig --odgt
    
    Default Adapter - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850
                      Sensor 0: Temperature - 50.50 C

    Do a clean install of your drivers. Probably you installed 10.4 on the 10.4pre shipped with ubuntu.

    Drivers are installed clean on Arch. They're fully functional with the exception of the --od options with aticonfig.

    where's the difficulty in typing:

    Code:
    DISPLAY=:0 aticonfig --odgt
    or

    Code:
    DISPLAY=:1 aticonfig --odgt
    or (if it's at /usr/local/bin)

    Code:
    DISPLAY=:0 /usr/local/bin/aticonfig --odgt
    ?
