Xfce4-sensors-plugin doesn't support NVIDIA graphic cards because it's built without libxnvctrl.
Xfce4-sensors-plugin uses NVCtrl to obtain NVIDIA GPU temperature value.

Additional info:
xfce4-sensors-plugin 1.2.3-1

Steps to reproduce:
Add libxnvctrl as makedep and then rebuild the package to enable this feature.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  This would force us to move libxnvctrl to extra and is not worth the work. Use abs to compile yourself.
