Seeing temperature and system info in dom0

Is there an easy way to see the temperature of your system in dom0?

I am using XFCE “Sensor Plugin” on my xfce4-panel. You can add it with right click on a panel, then Panel → Add New Items… It conveniently shows temperatures and is updated automatically.

Note that you don’t have to add it to your main panel but you can create another panel and make it hidden until you hover the mouse over it.

@fsflover Are you using R4.0?

Yes. I doubt that xfce 4.14 (which Qubes 4.1 uses) removed that option.

Thanks. Well, I meant on the desktop panel, like xfce4-panel.

Hey, thanks. I have the misunderstanding of thinking about dom0 as some modded linux distro, and hence the general how-to on linux stuff not applying to it. I should let go of this.

Thankfully, my X220 setup is taking shape (got a machine, cleaned it up, will apply thermal paste and put 16 GB RAM) so that I can gain first hand experience with it.
