I use this desklet under Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon.  I want it on FreeBSD, please.

Donald Knuth - I've proven it's correct, but I haven't actually tried it.

I think this desklet requires lm_sensors or some other Linux-specific software to function. Will probably be a doozy to port if attempted.

Keep in mind that Cinnamon code in general has quite a few Linux-isms of varying severities.
