KDE Monitor Question


How do you get that monitor to show up that has cpu load, mem usage, and all that other good stuff? Is it a separate application I'm missing or does it already exists in kde?

That's GKrellM. It's not included in KDE but you can get it from http://members.dslextreme.com/users/.../gkrellm.html.

once you get it installed run it using kstart
kstart --help

for instance if you start it once with
kstart --skippager --onbottom --alldesktops gkrellm

it will become a permanent part of your desktop (just move it to where you want it)

lm_sensors. you probably have i2c in your kernel ( 2.6 kernels already have it if it was enabled) look for a package called lm_sensors, install it, then run:

sensors-detect

follow the prompts, load the modules it tells you to.

once you have this done, right click gkrellm and enable the temp monitoring.
