lm-sensors deamon is not starting in ubuntu even after installing lm-sensors package

I have installed the lm-sensors package on my ubuntu machine and i did the below steps after that:
1. sudo sensors-detect (on Terminal and select YES for every prompt)
And even after that i am unable to see the lm-sensors deamon on my ubuntu machine .
Can any one please help here ?

Did it detect any sensors?

Hi ghiest

Yes , it is detecting the sensors :
And the output of sensors command is as follow:

"service lm-sensors start"
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Yes i did that too but even after doing the " service lm-sensors status" i am getting that global variable as NULL :

root@ocnos:~# service lm-sensors start
 * Setting sensors limits                                                [ OK ]
What global variable?
Vivek SrivastavaAuthor Commented:
Global variable " sensors_chip_features *sensors_proc_chips = NULL" define in the lm-sensor package library . I am suspecting that since lm-sensor daemon is not starting  hence this variable (defined in libsensors.so.4.4.0) is not getting initialized .
the sensors-detect you ran did not set right config file then (or you did not reboot afterwards to load correct kernel modules)
there is no such thing as global variables in Linux, even less they are defined in libraries.
