Unhappy How to make 'hddtemp' sensor to appear in Gnome Sensors?

Hello everyone, I have hddtemp installed and I get outputs of my HDD temperature in Terminal, but I can't see a the HDD temp sensor in the Preferences menu of my Sensors Applet. Any ideas how to make it show? Thanks in advance.

P.S. I have my /etc/default/hddtemp edited to:
# [automatically edited by postinst, do not change line format or set it to
# anything but false or true ]

# List of devices you want to use with hddtemp. If none specified,
# hddtemp will probe standard devices.
My Drive is a 7200.11 Barracuda split in /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5, I use LinuxMint 10 64-bit w/ Gnome.

EDIT: I just had to reboot after I changed to RUN_DAEMON="true", sorry
