Here's a tip. Avoid wine at all costs. Seriously. Most newbies tend to think that they can just run everything in wine. You're using GNU/Linux now, use the natively built applications for it. The only thing you can really justify running in Wine is games.

Look up conky. That's probably what you're looking for.

Jimi is right. You're looking for Conky with lm-sensors.

This is my conky:
[ATTACH]192474[/ATTACH]

The lm-sensors (well lm_sensors in arch) pull the temp data from the chip and conky displays it.

The sensors output in a terminal displays more info that I don't currently use in my conky. Stuff like fan speed and other temp sensors. I think these are my southbridge core temps as well. Not sure.

I'm going to disagree with the wine comment, I run plenty of applications in wine for work such as the client for my VOIP system along with the Administration tool, Macromedia MX Suite, and more.

Most programs like speedfan and other things are a pain though.

That's not what Jimi was saying. He didn't say don't use WINE. He said avoid it at all costs. If there is a native app that works well, use that. Don't just run to wine because that's what you're comfortable with.

How would I go about configuring Conky to look like that. That's absolutely perfect TFB! biggrin.gif

OT: Is your name an acronym for "The ******* Best?" Just wondering. smile.gif
