Hi, thanks for the excellent widget. One request: could we please have the option to disable the "Alias" text entirely and then vertically align the temperature in the centre? (I only want to display one maximum temperature so don't need an alias). Currently, dragging the "Alias font size" to the far left still makes it appear, so perhaps give us a tick box on whether we want an alias?

I'd like to try this but nothing happens when I install it as per your instructions. It just doesn't show-up in the list of widgets, so I can't add it (even though it says its installed). I have the libqt5qml-graphicaleffects package already, running Kubuntu on 16.04.

On Gentoo, I'm having an issue where temperatures do not show until I hit reload temperature sources. Afterwards it works fine.

Also, when using this widget for fan readings, there is no way to disable the temp circle (icon) that appears to the top right, it would be great if the program could understand the difference between a temp and a speed

Hi,
I use your monitor and it works pretty well.
I am using it for fan speeds also. Is there a way to disable the farenheit icon for fan speed usage?

I am using arch linux and plasma fully up to date. A few weeks ago I found that the widget no longer loads cpu temps on login and I have to right click the widget and get it to reload the sources. I have also updated the widget, as well as using the arch aur git version and behaviour remains the same. Is it possible to fix this problem?

Copying the latest individual files from the link provided above for the dev's page to the directory on my laptop at .local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.thermalMonitor/ fixes the widget and it now updates within a second or so of the desktop starting. However I don't know if the updated files for this widget have propagated to the plasmoid file for other places which depend on the developer's source. At this stage it looks like the arch aur version is not fully up to date.

Hi! Thanks for report. I have this problem, too. I try to repair it soon (hopefully during this week) and post a new version. So please wait for next version.

I also have the same problem. Some temperature sources are "OFF" by default and a sources reload is necessary.

I love the widget, was just wondering if it was possible to get the temp from my amd card to show up as well? I know the page says nvidia but I was unsure of how to get amd working as I checked all the temps and they didnt match up with aticonfig --odgt. If not I also saw a post showing how to set this up with psensors(http://wpitchoune.net/blog/news_experimental-ati-monitoring-support/).
Would it be possible to do something similar with this? Thanks for your time and great work!

Hi! Sorry for my late response, I'm temporarily quite busy nowadays.

I think we can work something out. If your ATI temperatures are not available but you know the right command to fetch the temperature ("aticonfig --odgt" ?) please provide the command along with example output so I can blindly work it in the widget and give you a test version :). Thanks! And thanks for your feedback :).

I'm having difficulty finding the version I have installed, for now I could use a hint on where to look.

If it would be possible could you add a version number to one of the settings screens?

Report

You are right, there is no way determining the version. I plan to add a "debug" or "about" section in settings where debug logs can be switched on and version info will be present there, too.

It could be great if you update the description to explain how to install the plasmoid, because it's not clear. For exemple you can say that, now we have thermal-monitor.plasmoid, Thermal Monitor can be installed from "Add widgets..." -> Get new widgets -> Download new plasma widgets. You can also say that the "compilation installation" is optionnal since it can be installed from "Add widgets...".

Nice !
But for me, the text above the temperature doesn't appear, and so the plasmoid take a lot of place, but is almost empty.
Could you look into that also ?
