lm-sensors is a nice tool for monitoring the CPU temperature.

To install lm-sensors, open a terminal and type:

$ sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

To use it, type in your terminal:

$ sudo sensors-detect

You will be asked if you want what it finds to be added to /etc/modules so that it will be loaded with the other kernel modules. Type yes for doing it.

Now, when typing sensors in the terminal, you will get the CPU temperature:

$ sensors

This is it. Enjoy.
