How to get the Xfce panel sensors applet to recognize hddtemp

What you need to do is run hddtemp as suid root.

Here is how you do it:

Open the console, become root and type: dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp

You will get to see a new window where you can configure hddtemp.

Install hddtemp to run as root and to start at boot.

After you are done close the console and log out and in. If all worked out you should now see the harddrive(s) appear.

Good luck!
