    ksensors in Fedora 19


    I successfully installed ksensors. When I click on the ksensors icon in the task bar nothing happens-no error messages, nothing!
    If I enter ksensors at the command line again nothing happens. I get back the command prompt.

    Anybody get ksensors to work in Fedora 19?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Did you also install and configure the lm_sensors package(s)? I think that ksensors works with that. FWIW, I don't see the ksensors package in RHEL 6.4 - what repository is it in?

    Yes I did install lm_sensors successfully before I installed ksensors. Also I am using GNOME not KDE. But as I recall, I was using GNOME in Fedora 13 and ksensors worked then.
