You need to instal lm_sensors whichs is the name of the same package as on other distros:

sudo dnf install lm_sensors lm_sensors-sensord

To help you in the future looking for a package on the terminal type

sudo dnf search sensors

That will show you the list of all packages with the word sensors on the name or description.

Good Luck

Many thanks :) please notice that you have a "t" in the word "sensorts"

Also note that you don't need sudo to search for a package or get info.

There's a typo - 'sudo dns...' in the first command :)

Merely installing lm_sensors isn't enough. You should run as root the script sensors-detect and possibly answer Yes to all questions. This will create the file /etc/sensors3.conf suitable for your computer. Afterwards you'll be able to read your sensors with the command sensors or with some graphical interface, like the Freon extension for gnome shell.

basic but effective:

watch -n 2 sensors (after installing lm_sensors)
