I have a laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo cpu. I have the following in my i3status config file:

order += "cpu_temperature 0"
order += "cpu_temperature 1"

and later on:

cpu_temperature 0{
        format = "%degrees °C"

cpu_temperature 1{
        format = "%degrees °C"

When I go and check those paths myself and cat the files I get two different temperatures. If I compare those with the output of the "sensors" command, I see that these are indeed the temperatures of the two cores. However the i3status bar shows two identical temperatures corresponding to the first core.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong here?

Same for me. I can't recall if this happened after an update or an edit to the i3status.conf. By the way, I have the same lines as yours. cat-ing the values (taken straight from the i3status.conf) shows different values for each CPU as expected.

It's a bug. Was fixed in commmit 26faed4c2f2c23f17b0c9170a4a72bb018931ed8, not yet released under any version number.
