       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

       is raised.

       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
