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?

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 ?

Hi! So even if you fill the "Alias" field while adding new resource you still cannot see the "text above temperature"? If it is the case please also ensure, you have non-zero "Alias font size" inside Appearance settings section.

My bad. I didn't saw the 'Alias' input in the popup, and so didn't have any aliases set.

In the settings, adding a title bar in the table could help avoid that mistake.
Also, the possibility to edit the values directly in the table would be welcome, and would remove the need of a popup.

Anyway, thanks again !

Oh, I've never test it as a standalone widget on desktop. I use it inside panel. OK, I'll try to repair the behaviour. Thanks for reporting :)

This sounds great! However I don't know how to install it, and can't find anything via Google that seems relevant. I'm running Kubuntu 15.04. I've tried using the install options in the Download New Plasma Widgets window but none of them seem to work (I can't find the widget in the list of available widgets in the Add Widgets tool once it says it's installed). I've tried downloading the source from GitHub and compiling it but not sure if this is necessary and don't want to install I don't know how many dependencies to compile it if it's not necessary...

I've just added instructions to the description. Please let me know if it was sufficient. Thanks!

Thanks! I wasn't able to compile it due to unmet dependencies (see below). I think I found the package containing those dependencies (plasma-framework-dev), however I couldn't install it on my system using the usual package manager, I think because I've installed the latest nvidia drivers from a third-party repository, which causes a version conflict a long way down the chain of dependencies (libgles2-mesa-dev : Depends: libgles2-mesa (= 10.5.2-0ubuntu1) but 10.6.0~git20150423.125574d1-0ubuntu0ricotz~utopic is to be installed).

Gah! :)

I'd rather not recompile the various cuda libraries I'm using after downgrading to the default nvidia driver version for my distribution just to see if this fixes it, so I think I'll just leave the thermal monitor for now. Thanks for your help though!

Although I am curious as to why it needs compiling at all. I remember in the good old days of KDE4 I could download and install just about any widget without having to compile it. More and more I'm thinking I should have waited another 6 months or year before upgrading to KDE 5, too many things missing or broken at the moment. :/

And finally I've learned how to make installable plasmoid. Please just head to "Add widgets..." -> Get new widgets -> Download new plasma widgets. Find Thermal Monitor and install it with the first item (thermal-monitor.plasmoid).

If the option with *.plasmoid isn't there, restart plasma, sometimes it stays cached...

I followed your other instructions and it worked, thanks, but great re the installable plasmoid!
Now if only it was easy to know which arcane sensor name corresponded to which sensor... ;)

Actually to me this is also quite cryptic:) I've tried to find some info about these names (acpiz-virtual-0... wtf? I know, I'm amateur) so I can add some hints for each sensor. But so far I wasn't very successful. When I do find something, I'll add the hints.

OK, please note that there isn't any actual compiling. The cmake command is just configuring the package and preparing installation paths. "make install" command is just installing files into the right paths. But I suspect that the cmake is not working for you. In that case install it manually this way:

1)
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/kotelnik/plasma-applet-thermal-monitor

2)
cd plasma-applet-thermal-monitor/

3)
sudo mkdir /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.thermalMonitor

4)
sudo cp -r package/* /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.thermalMonitor/

5)
sudo cp package/metadata.desktop /usr/share/kservices5/plasma-applet-org.kde.thermalMonitor.desktop

That should do it. Yes I should probably learn how to package the widgets so it can be easily installed on any distro...

You mean the warning and meltdown ones? These icons only show up when a certain temperature is exceeded. These edge temperatures are configurable.

It needs an update. You have to "reload temperature sources" at boot to make it work, which is a sign it may deteriorate even further in the future. This widget is a "must have" and i wish KDE developers would pick it up and make it one of the default ones, since it is critical for those who have laptops.

+I have a weird bug where I have to 'refresh sources' after logon to display cpu core group temperatures (highest temp core shown). Otherwise it remains blank. However gpu temp (single temp source) works correctly on initial widget load.
