Give gnome sensors a try:
$ sudo apt-get install sensors-applet
GNOME Sensors Applet is an applet for the GNOME panel that displays
readings from hardware sensors, including temperatures, fan speeds and
It can gather data from the following sources:
* ACPI thermal zones, via the Linux kernel ACPI modules
* Linux kernel i2c modules
* lm-sensors (libsensors)
* Linux kernel i8k module (for Dell Inspiron Laptops)
* Linux kernel ibm-acpi module
* Linux kernel PowerPC modules therm_adt746x and therm_windtunnel
* Linux kernel iMac G5 Windfarm module
* hddtemp daemon for reading temperatures from S.M.A.R.T. equipped hard
* Linux kernel Omnibook module
* NVIDIA graphics cards
* Linux kernel sonypi module (for Sony Vaio laptops)
Alarms can be set for each sensor to notify the user once a certain high
or low value has been reached, and can be configured to execute a given
command at given repeated intervals.
After install add to the panel the same way that you added computertemp.
