inxi -s # for sensors
Then on xfce desktop, I used to know a xfce4-sensor- plugin you may also give it a try.
Yes, that';s the one I was talking about, the xfce4 panel plugin.I just noticed that when I mouse over it, I get a pop up notification showing the two sensors that I have included on the panel (CPU and MB Temps) I assume if I included more of the sensors, it would show them as well...which makes me wonder if greogorylock's problem is how he's got pop-up notifications set in Linux Lite, rather than any issue with Psensor...Gregory, do you get ANY pop up notices on any panel objects in Linux Lite? If not, then perhaps you have that sort of pop up shut off?
I am still wondering whether you are getting any pop ups from any other panel objects...for example, when you place the mouse over your clock, does it pop up a date report? (Or any other panel object that would show some sort of info when doing a mouse over)For example, I use the XFCE weather plug in, which shows a graphic image of the current conditions (a cloud or sun or a cloud with rain or snow) and a scrolling text of the conditions I set (I have it set to show temperature, wind speed, wind direction and humidity) these are visible at all times... when I mouse over, a large pop up window opens that shows a much more detailed set of data, which then disappears as soon as I move the mouse away.
I'm not saying you "turned off" any pop up notifications, but perhaps the people who made the distro in question changed it's default behavior? Perhaps in the past, they had it set by default to show those pop up "mouse hints" and for whatever reason, they are now setting it by default to not show them... and all you would need to do is turn them on.Check in the settings for the plug-in:right click the panel where the psensor plug in is located and choose properties,go to the "Miscellaneous" tabbe sure "Suppress tooltip" is NOT checked.
Alright! After spending some time on researching the topic i found a post at Linux Lite forums, it is also describing the same issue. No sure if you have already looked at the post or not.
One thing more what if it is an application specific problem, can you check for the versions of Psensor for both Linux Lite and Xubuntu. Now sure if they will be a difference or not but you can also try to install the Psensor from XUBUNTU to Linux Lite if the version seems to differ and check if it works or not. Also re-check all configs related to Psensor.
"Your supposed to right click on the Psensor and then you get the information. If you want more information, you would cick on "Show".(forgive me for not using the forum quote feature... but I only wanted to quote that one line...)That's different in Manjaro XFCE. On my system, if I mouse over the icon I see a basic report of only those sensors which I have enabled to show in the panel... if I want more I have to double click. (Right click gives a menu to change the properties, move or remove the icon, or edit the whole panel)So, obviously XFCE is set up a bit differently in Manjaro than it is in Ubuntu and Ubuntu based distros...or perhaps we're using a different version?
