In this article will show you how you can read your Cpu Temperature.
step 1: you need to open your terminal type “cd /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0″ without quotes and press enter.

you will see five digit number. this is not in correct format .The first two digit is the cpu temperature.

I have written the script to show you correct form of cpu temperature . copy the below code and save it as cputemp.sh
cputemp0=`cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp`
echo CPU temp”=”$cputemp1″.”$cputemp”‘C”

  1. Actually, the format of this file is machine dependent. On my uDoo, running Ubuntu, the file is located at /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp, and the current value is “38”; a two digit number.

  2. cat: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp: No such file or directory
