Monitor your PC temperature in ubuntu


Psensor is a temperature sensor available for ubuntu.Psensor is a GTK application for monitoring hardware sensors, including temperatures and fan speeds.

       It displays a curve for each sensor, and uses Desktop  Notification  to
       raise an alarm when a temperature is too high. On Ubuntu an Application
       Indicator is also available, its icon changes when a temperature  alert
       is raised.

       It can monitor:
         *  the  temperature of the motherboard and CPU sensors (using lm-sen‐
         * the temperature of the NVidia GPUs (using XNVCtrl).
         * the temperature and fan rotation speed of the ATI GPUs.
         * the temperature of the Hard Disk Drives (using hddtemp).
         * the rotation speed of the fans (using lm-sensors).
         * the sensors of a remote computer (using psensor-server).

       Psensor requires lm-sensors to be correctly installed  and  configured,
       it  can be checked by running the command 'sensors'.  If it has never been
       done, you may need to run the command 'sensors-detect' and  follow  the
       To retrieve the temperature of the Hard Disk Drives, the hddtemp daemon
       must be running.

       For remote monitoring:
         * start psensor-server(1) on the remote computer
         *  run  psensor  with  '--url'  option:  'psensor --url=http

       ATI/AMD GPUs monitoring is available  if  the  library  libatiadlxx  is
       present  in  the  directory /usr/lib and psensor has been compiled with
       the ATI ADL SDK.
You can install it by typing the following in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install psensor

How to setup a wifi-hotspot in Ubuntu: The terminal way.

Ubuntu has a "Use as hotspot" mode. But it creates a n ad-hoc network only.Wireless hotspots aren't same as ad hoc networks. Significant difference is there. In short, ad hoc networks aren't supported in most Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry devices (and may be iOS devices too) whereas AP mode Wi-Fi hotspots are.

              It is really simple and easy to setup a hotspot in Ubuntu. We use a tool called ap-hotspot. To install it open a terminal and type the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ap-hotspot
             Next, to start the hotspot type the following in a terminal:
sudo ap-hotspot start
It asks you which adapter's internet you want to share, name of the network, password, etc. in an interactive manner. To stop the hotspot type the following n the terminal :
sudo ap-hotspot stop
To configure it type the following in the terminal :
sudo ap-hotspot configure
