How to check the CPU temprature on Ubuntu OS?

Now this is the question many tweekers will want to know. Now in order to see the CPU temprature follow the below steps :

First you will need to install lm-sensors

here are the commands that needs to be entered in the terminal (assuming you've updated and upgraded your OS before.)

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors     

After you're done with the installation type the following in the terminal : 

sudo sensors-detect

And you will also need to run this (Optional)

sudo service kmod start  

Now when you run this, a new prompt will open and will ask you for a few questions. You'll need to answer Yes for all of them. Now finally in order to see the temprature of your CPU, type in sensors in your terminal.

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): YES

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): YES
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No

Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): YES
Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:9c22 at 0000:00:1f.3.
Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.
