    proc is no command, but is supposed to be directory of files to be read.
    Hence cat proc/cpuinfo.

    Look for a package lm-sensors.
    It provides a tool called sensors.

    Generally, you need to have lm-sensors installed, and a module to suit your CPU. The command is sensors, but do a bit of googling, because the results may be quite delirious if you don't set it up correctly. Some hardware never seems to give sensible results. There's quite a lot of stuff on the web about lm-sensors for this reason.
    There's a how-to on the Ubuntu forums, but since I'm still in short pants on this forum, I'm not allowed to post a link.

    Now that I've got 15 posts, I'm obviously trustworthy, so here's the link:

    There's also a rather good GUI app called hardinfo.
