Hello,

 

I have Mint MATE and installed psensor, rebooted.

 

Psensor is showing icon in tray but clicking or right clicking not showing menu and also not showing value of temperature next to tray icon too.

 

I run in terminal to check for any error messages and I get rhese:

 

 

[2018-02-15T02:05:45] [WARN] Failed to load configuration file /home/tvbox/.psensor/psensor.cfg: No such file or directory

 
(psensor:2769): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_thaw_toplevel_updates: assertion 'window->update_and_descendants_freeze_count > 0' failed
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
 

 

Can someone help me out how to fix?

How did you Install psensor?  Run in Terminal

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors hddtemp psensor

After that you will need to configure lm-sensors, run in Terminal

sudo sensors-detect

And choose Yes to all questions.

 

Then you can open Menu and type psensor, you should then see it and be able to open it and configure it to your liking.

0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.

 

 
I already have all those packages and done detected all the sensors with sensors-detect
The mate panel applets for sensors already work. 
 
I actually mistyped the first post. I left click and can get into the program and see the sensors. It's just that if I right click on the icon a menu should appear with sensor information which it doesn't and the icon should have a readout next to it which it doesnt.

I don't think that is how it works but will take a look at mine later during my linux hours.  Unless you have experienced this, I would say that is not how it works, at least that's not how I remember it.  I think you would be happier with Conky, which will sit on your desktop if you like and always show you all these activities and more.  Here is a Tutorial that may help you achieve the configuration.

My Psensor shows all of the temps and info when I left click the thermometer in the panel.

Hm. I think pcpunk and The Toolman are right.

 

As I recall, when you click on psensor's tray applet, the main graph window comes up. To configure it the way you want, you need to click on Options/Preferences along the top left, where the Menu options are.

 

Then you can configure it how you want. to. Am I remembering that correctly, guys?

I think so Mike, this is why I use Conky, and have psensor set to warn me of overheating only.  Once and a while will get er up and take a look, but it's been some time now.  I think it can also be set to always be on top.

I just install it and use it out of the box.

 

I figure if I develop any major temp issues I'll hear my fans start ramping.

 

There doesn't seem to be much configuration info anywhere that I've found.

Above picture is what I am trying to get.

Notice there is temperature value next to the thermometer icon? I have the icon but not the value.

I can left click on the icon which the whole program opens up but I don't get the menu to show up.

 

In preferences I already enabled Menu and Unity Launcher Counter. In sensor preferences I already enabled display sensor in the label and in the menu.

To give more info, it's not just this tray indicator that is the problem. 

 

Here is link to another post I made in mint forum. Unfortunately no one seems to know how to fix there.

https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=263864

 

 

 

psensor
Shows the thermometer icon in the tray but no value next to it. 
Display sensor in label and in menu have been enabled in preferences.
Left clicking does not do anything but I think it should have a menu come down with temperature and other readings

indicator-multiload
Blank space appears where something should.
Right and left click can get access to preferences, I selected which sensors I want shown.
Occassionally the blank space flickers into a graph or something for 1 second.

indicator-sysmonitor
Blank space again

my-weather-indicator
This one shows the cloud icon in the tray but not the temperature like it should
I have enabled temperature to be shown in preferences.

 

My weather indicator shows similar error

Mm. I suspect part of your problem is that you're not actually using Unity, are you.....or even Ubuntu, come to that. (Remember, Unity is/was an Ubuntu 'exclusive'. Just like Ubuntu One was. And Ubuntu Phone. And.....well, I could go on. But I won't.)

 

AFAICT, you're using Mint. With the MATE desktop. (Which is a far more sensible choice, anyway. Unity was.....peculiar, to say the least.)

 

I've remembered that I do in fact have pSensor running in one of my Pups.....Tahrpup64 6.0.5. But I don't use it for the temp readout, in any case; I have Mick Amadio's 'pmcputemp' and gKrellM for that. I mainly use it to monitor the HDD/SSD temps.

 

I vaguely recall not being able to get the tray temp readout in Mint Cinnamon. I think it would work in the old GNOME2.....and I know it worked in ZorinOS, a few years ago. It's one of those items that wasn't compatible with every desktop manager out there.....

 

The same goes for 'My-Weather'. (Another one I used to like using.)

 

 

Mike.  :wink:

Where did you get that pic?

 

I see what you are saying now, and didn't doubt you but it's been so long that I configured mine.  I have the same issue.

 


 

It's just that if I right click on the icon a menu should appear with sensor information which it doesn't

Fortunately I do have the Menu Dropdown but not the little Temp Readout.  That may only be available with certain Hardware, why don't you post your inxi so we can compare.

I have version 0.8.0.3

 

Maybe you need to install a newer version

I assume your Distro is up to date as you seem to have a grasp on what you are doing?

since psensor v1.0.1, the value of the sensors can be displayed in the top bar, see https://wpitchoune.net/psensor/ubuntu.html

You can easily upgrade to a version of psensor including this new feature by using the psensor ppa:

 

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jfi/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install psensor

 

https://askubuntu.com/questions/539556/how-to-get-temperature-indicators-in-the-panel-in-14-04

 

 

the temperature can now be displayed directly in the panel, next to the Psensor icon (this feature is currently considered experimental);

I got the pic from google using the term psensor

 

I checked and have version 1.3, I just upgraded to version 1.5 using the links given. Same error.

I originally used mate software manager to install, then I upgrade to 1.5 with console.

 

As noted in my first post, I am not using Ubuntu but Mint Mate.

 

I guess Mike Walsh was right, it may not work in all desktops?

 

Command inxi gives:

CPU~Dual core AMD Athlon 4850e (-MCP-) speed/max~1000/2500 MHz Kernel~4.13.0-32-generic x86_64 Up~3:12 Mem~1837.6/5960.6MB HDD~1160.2GB(62.9% used) Procs~197 Client~Shell inxi~2.2.35  
 
In the mate sensors applet I can get cpu temp, gpu temp, hdd temp just fine. Also in cairo dock. It's just that I wanted to try other indicator options to see what suits me.
