Is anyone able to advise what will happen to the hardware
Will this work in GNOME3 or GNOME Shell? Or do we need to wait for
new 'widgets' to appear in a later GNOME release (3.2?) for this sort of
functionality to appear again?
(Assuming you're talking about gnome-applets-sensors)
If someone ports it to the new libpanel_applet, it will be available
for use in fallback mode. Otherwise, it will have to wait until someone
writes some sort of extension for it.
