Written by Fabian Nowak, this is a hardware sensors plugin for the panel. For now, it only works on Linux and requires libsensors to display your mainboard sensors and fan speeds. Furthermore, it supports hddtemp to monitor your hard disk's temperature values. Source code and Debian packages are available.
Add the plugin to the panel and start checking some checkboxes in the sensors table.
You can specify the color you want the text to appear, rename the sensor so that the tooltip displays the new name.
You can also display your values graphically, meaning they are displayed by bars. For those bars, you can specify min and max values which result in red colored bars, when those min or max values are reached.
If you don't like the green bars, you can check to display colored bars, thus using the color values specified for each sensor.
Install ``hddtemp´´ to be able to monitor your harddrives as well.

- xfce4-sensors-plugin 1.4.2 released (2021/11/15 21:02)
xfce4-sensors-plugin 1.4.2 is now available for download from https://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-sensors-plugin/1.4/xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.4.2.tar.bz2 https://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-sensors-plugin/1.4/xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.4.2.tar.bz2?sha1 https://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-sensors-plugin/1.4/xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.4.2.tar.bz2?sha256 What is xfce4-sensors-plugin? ============================= The sensors plugin allows to conveniently track the status of any sensor available in your system, including mainboard and processor sensors, harddisk sensors and ACPI. Visualization is available in three different ways. The package also delivers a stand-alone application. Website: https://docs.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-sensors-plugin Release notes for 1.4.2 ======================= Besides the bug fixes and feature updates listed below, this release migrates the source code from C to C++ in order to increase type-safety, to use reference counting and containers for semi-automatic memory management where possible, and to slightly improve source code readability. - Prevent overlap of tachometer titles - Improved standalone app layout - Fix crash in hddtemp codepath with a SATA SSD drive - Increase default temperature ranges of HDDs and NVIDIA GPUs by 10℃ - Remove default values from RC configuration files - Suppress title after the user adds the 1st sensor - Remove hard-coded limits restricting the maximum number of sensors - Test all possible build configurations using brute-force search - Use xfce4::connect instead of the less safe g_signal_connect - Enable lm_sensors in GitLab distcheck - Fix memory leaks - Translation Updates: Basque, Danish, Hebrew, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Malay, Portuguese (Brazil), Serbian, Slovenian, Turkish
