or

you can edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local and add:

modprobe ac
modprobe battery
modprobe fan
modprobe processor
modprobe thermal

and add to /root/.jwmrc-tray

<Swallow name="wmpower">
wmpower -no-meddling
</Swallow>

after the fisrt "</Swallow>"

Hi, it would be nice to have the display in the tray rather than as a separate window as you have shown how to do. However, I am most interested in the temperature showing not the charging time as happens when I put in the following:
<Swallow name="wmpower">
wmpower -no-meddling
</Swallow>

Is there an option which will show just temperature or place it at the top?
Thanks

You can get the temperature in the tray in a round about way by installing batmon and then modifying the last lines in /root/my-applications/bin/batmon.sh
Code:
temp=`cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM0/temperature | awk '{print $2}'`
echo -n "${acon}${per}% ${temp}C"

You will need to ensure that the thermal module is loaded each boot. I do this with
modprobe thermal
in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

I need to correct my previous post.
The way I write is to place it at the tray, not as separate window.
See here detailed instructions: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=613345424&t=7486
