depending on which linux OS you have, use your package manager to locate lm_sensors package
once installed, you should have a sensors command that will output temperature if available
Also check your package manager for GKrellM, which typically has plugins to take input from temperature sensors on the motherboard, CPU, GPU and hard drive[s].
