Purely for asthetic purposes, here's a patch to remove the "about" and "quit" menu items: Not suggesting that it be added to the package, I just like my indicators to match and thought maybe someone else might too. Unfortunately indicator-sensors doesn't come with convenient settings to do this.

>willemw Thanks! It's my first time to come across this particular kind of problem: I had built libxnvctrl with link time optimization, which somehow makes it impossible to find functions by the method the configure script attempts.

@quequotion: Nothing seems to be missing. indicator-sensors does find the library: checking for XNVCTRLQueryExtension in -lXNVCtrl... yes Try updating your system and reinstalling libxnvctrl. Make sure libxnvctrl is redownloaded. Otherwise, maybe try debugging the generated src/indicator-sensors-0.8/configure file. This is were the checking is performed.

Something seems to be wrong with the lxnvctrl package. indicator-sensors claims it can't find the library: checking for NVCtrl/NVCtrl.h... yes checking for NVCtrl/NVCtrlLib.h... yes checking for XNVCTRLQueryExtension in -lXNVCtrl... no I have the package installed: yaourt -Qs libxnvctrl community/libxnvctrl 352.21-1 NVIDIA X Ctrl library Are we missing something? packageconfig? .so? yaourt -Ql libxnvctrl libxnvctrl /usr/ libxnvctrl /usr/include/ libxnvctrl /usr/include/NVCtrl/ libxnvctrl /usr/include/NVCtrl/NVCtrl.h libxnvctrl /usr/include/NVCtrl/NVCtrlLib.h libxnvctrl /usr/include/NVCtrl/nv_control.h libxnvctrl /usr/lib/ libxnvctrl /usr/lib/libXNVCtrl.a

@glitsj16: Done.

Would it be possible to add 'libxnvctrl' as optdepends to enable sensor support for NVIDIA GPU's? The make step detects this automatically so there's no extra changes needed. Tested locally and it works just fine. Modified PKGBUILD @

@nloewen: Thanks. Fixed.

This package build is currently affected by this bug.

Updated the package. You will still need to create the two symlinks mentioned earlier in the comments.

Erdbeerkaese commented on 2013-02-05 23:20 (UTC)

Updated the package to the latest version. If you encounter the same problem as ozlacs (you probably will), create two symlinks as root: ln -s /usr/bin/aclocal /usr/bin/aclocal-1.12 ln -s /usr/bin/automake /usr/bin/automake-1.12 This is just a workaround, a real fix can only be provided by gnome-common.

Erdbeerkaese commented on 2013-02-05 23:11 (UTC)

This is a gnome-common bug, it's already on their bugtracker. See

checking for automake >= 1.9... testing automake-1.12... not found. testing automake-1.11... not found. testing automake-1.10... not found. testing automake-1.9... not found. ***Error***: You must have automake >= 1.9 installed to build indicator-sensors. I've automake-1.13 installed, please fix it

gnome-common and intltool are generally makedepends.

Erdbeerkaese commented on 2012-08-11 16:31 (UTC)

Added intltool and moved gnome-common to depends.

commented on 2012-08-11 14:36 (UTC)

gnome-common and intltool should be required dependencies.

Also try this extension for the gnome-shell:
