Some sensor plasmoids stopped working

Simple monitor, SysMon and Thermal Monitor no longer show sensors or read them. However, System Monitor Sensor works fine.

note in the inxi output the lack of sensors listed. lmsesnors is installed and works:

I'm fairly certain this has everything to do with having removed orphan packages, at least one of which wasn't an orphan after all. Problem is I don't know which one.

Por favor, ayuda?

Why not simply roll your system back if you don't know what changes that you made messed your system up?

Well, two reasons:

  1. I learn nothing from that (but will be doing that if I can't figure this out)
  2. I don't want to :stuck_out_tongue: (but my have to. alas.)

:grin:

You can always check your pacman log for your install/uninstall history if you wish to do the detective work required.

oh duh. See? I'm learning already!

Thanks @tbg :blue_heart:

ksysguard returned the missing functionality. Yay!

Ya, you don't want to go deleting that when running KDE. Glad you found the missing piece to the puzzle.

If the affected applets are KDE provided, you might want to report (or search bugs) upstream for this requirement.

ksysguard is being replaced by a new application, so they may want to know they have to take care of proper dependencies.

Or inform plasmoids' developers... :wink:

Good idea.
