CPU-z like program for linux? [Ubuntu 12.04] - Page 2

Surprised that no-one has mentioned Conky yet, some of you guys have awesome Conky set-ups biggrin.gif

The idle core temps on the CPU (e5400 @ 3.2) are 40/37 according to lmsensors and I recall these were in the high-20s under Windows 7. Of course it is also now in a different case sitting above a much hotter video card (Gtx-260 that idles at 60C). But if its busy, like running FAH it peaks at around 57/53. Which is why I was suspecting it might not be down clocking.

I took a look at Conky and need to spend some more time on the wiki to see if I can figure out how to get the info I am looking for. I confess to being a neophyte when it comes to Linux and this tool appears like it would require I further my education a bit.

Thanks

Yeah, Conky scares me off too - luckily, there's loads of people who post their configs online for others to use, so you don't have to get your hands dirty, so to speak. A simple "cookie-cutter" job will probably sort you out. Check this thread out - http://www.overclock.net/t/412999/conky-configurations-thread, Google is good too

Settings
Variables

Basically, just copy/paste someones settings section from a configuration file you find online. Most will be the same or close to the same ( aside from gaps and colors, which are each enough to change ).

Variables are easy, most can be used simply by using " $variable " while others require a little more " ${variable 0} " such as finding the individual cpu numbers, the site says " cpu cpuN ", N standing for number and in Linux we usually always start at 0 and not 1, but in this case the site says 0 is total usage and anything 1 and over is the individual usage, so the end script would be;
Code:
settings I don't care to fill out right now as I don't have a conky config handy ( there is a conky thread here somewhere :) )


TEXT #  -- everything after this line is what will be displayed on screen --
${cpu cpu1}
$(cpu cpu2}
${cpu cpu3}
${cpu cpu4}

or you could align them differently...
Code:
TEXT  #  -- everything after this line is what will be displayed on screen --
${cpu cpu1} ${alignr}$(cpu cpu2}
${cpu cpu3}  ${alignr}${cpu cpu4}

or you could add a bar ( cpubar cpuN height,width ) to go with that...
Code:
TEXT #  -- everything after this line is what will be displayed on screen --
${cpubar cpu0 10,100}  

Now remember, each new line in the configuration is a new line on the displayed conky, so try not to leave a blank line at the end ( unless you want that extra space at the end ).

Conky isn't difficult, just time consuming. And once you figure out everything you can do with it, it becomes an addiction tongue.gif

I know this is an old thread, but I too had been trying to find a cpu-z to use in Ubuntu. I found this website:

http://blog.hostonnet.com/how-to-view-cpu-info-in-ubuntu-cpu-z-alternative-for-linux
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cpug-devs/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cpu-g

Worked for me. Now to find a good temp monitor smile.gif
