Raspberry Pi Journal #14

Adding a Temperature Widget

Go to the bottom bar on the GUI Desktop. Hit the right mouse button, and a menu will pop up. One of the option is Add/Remove panel item. Among them is a Temperature sensor.

Select that to add it to the bar. You can move it up and down for proper placement. The temperature reading is in Celcius, and anything below 70 degree is fine. My usual temperature reading is about 54 degree.

There is an exception. When I was connecting my Kindle to it, it sometimes goes to 84 degree for a second or two. I wonder why? My guess is that there is a voltage drain that somehow causes the calibration to be off. Otherwise, no harm.
