Description Steevithak 2012-03-03 10:52:16 EST
Description of problem:
I installed Fedora 16 and gnome-shell-extension-cpu-temperature. A temperature of 26.8 C is always displayed on the top toolbar regardless of actual CPU, GPU, HD, and other internal temperatures. I previously ran Fedora 14 and the toolbar temp monitor displayed temperatures for each sensor separately and correctly. Presumably the new version is averaging all the temps into one value or only displaying one of the sensors? But it should still vary over time and at least approximate some actual internal temperature to be useful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora 16
2. install gnome-shell-extension-cpu-temperature
3. watch it display 26.8C forever 
Actual results:
Displays a static string reading 26.8C

Expected results:
Displays temperature of CPU or some other actual internal temperature

Additional info:
I'm using a Dell Studio 15 laptop Dell Studio 1558 with Intel i3 and ATI graphics. I seem to recall Fedora 14 initially had trouble reading temps on this model laptop but didn't see a bug related to this.

Also, it would be nice to display multiple temps like the old version did if this is possible.

The problem is still  present in gnome-shell-extension-cpu-temperature-0-0.4.gite1777e6.fc16

It's still not displaying an actual CPU temperature, just a static reading of 26.8 C all the time.
