    did you check the AUR? that usually has just about anything big enough worth mentioning.


    I'm not too familiar with how this program differs from lm_sensors, how exactly are temperatures read differently?

    wow, now I can find it, it appeared from some minutes.
    but it didn't compile:

    Installing cputemp:
    Copying program to /tmp/yaourt-tmp-fabio/aur-cputemp/pkg/usr/bin: Done.
    Checking if log exists: No
    ***Creating Log:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./Setup.py", line 77, in <module>
    open (logpath + "/cputemp.log", 'w' ).write("cputemp log \n\n")
    IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/log//cputemp.log'

    Chuck Norris may be able to install software system wide as a regular user, but you need to be root to do that.

    lm_sensors read from I2C and other buses to communicate directly with the integrated circuit and stuff.
    cputemp mentioned in the article reads from ACPI.

    Default Would be nice without python

    Very simple application. 270 lines of python code. It only reads and displayes the contents of /sys/* and /proc/* files.

    Would be nice to have this ported to C so it does not depend on the non-lightweight python package, or even Lua.

    But Python is installed by default on Ubuntu. I guess on most other distributions too.

    I've done a C port of the tool. You can find it at https://github.com/ifoo/ccputemp.

    Right I get that much but what makes ACPI better for reading temperatures? I pretty much got the impression that ACPI was more revolved around keeping your computer power efficient and quiet. While temperatures take a big part in that, I don't see why power control couldn't just use I2C sensors.
