[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#678800: xfce4-sensors-plugin: Sensor value display cannot be selected

Package: xfce4-sensors-plugin
Version: 1.2.5-1
Severity: important

Since the upgrade to 1.2.5-1 (I think), The panel displays
"Sensors" rather than (in this case) a temperature.

Clicking on the icon, the Sensors Viewer window is displayed
properly with the correct temperature. The "show" box is empty
(which presumably explains the problem).

Clicking on the box, turns it on (the "tick" appears). There is no
"save" button, so presumably closing the window should save the 
new configuration. However the temperature is still not displayed and
clicking again shows the "show" box to be emty again.

Bug 1). There is no documentation explaining where the configuration is
stored. I assume that I could just edit the appropriate file if I knew
where it was.

Bug 2.) The "show" box does not work as above.

In passing, my hard disk is an SSD which does not support 
temperature reporting. It is irritating that I have intrusive
error windows reporting that sbin/hddtemp -n -q /dev/sda is failing
because hddtemp is missing. I should not need to waste disk space on 
a package which is useless on this machine.
