My laptop reports two temperatures:
$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ00/temperature
temperature: 27 C
$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/TZ01/temperature
temperature: 51 C
I don't know what the former is, it always stays at 27 no matter what. The
TZ01 value changes and according to its level the fan kicks in.
The e gadget shows 27C and does not shift. How can I change this to point it

I thought that it picks it up from acpi.
If it only works with lm-sensors then I'm in trouble because lm-sensors does
not (yet) include my hardware.

Solved! It was quite simple really. All I had to do was to go into settings
for the temperature gadget and switch 'Hardware' from Internal to udev.
