I would like to try the hdd temperature kde powered to get the measurement of my hard drive’s temperature. I have got the problem using plasma widget. Will this widget of plasma be supported by hdd temperature? Please advise me what to do, I can’t find the solution of this problem in other websites.

Hello Armstrong,

The temperature widget should show it, assuming it detects the temperature sensors built into your hard disks. It accesses it's data via KSysguard. 

You can view the temperature running "hddtemp /dev/sda" in console. Check whether you can get temperature by running "hddtemp"

Also you can use gkrellm or conky, those are more configurable and detailed than the plasma widget.

Hi Armstrong,
 
There's an widget that comes as default in every Distro.
 To find out : Click 'Cashew'  ->  'Add Widgets'  ->  'System Monitor'.
Here you will find other hardware monitor tools as well but 'System Monitor' has most customized features involved in it.
There is always 'Conky', which I prefer using beside 'KDE'.
 
Hope it helped.
