System Information


On quiet a few desktop screenshots I have noticed a thin vertical program running which displays system information. What is it and where can I get it from? Sorry, but I don't have any links right now as I'm pressed for time but I can get some later on if nobody knows what I am talking about.

cheers

That'd be the one. Thanks guys

I noticed the tarball package only supports Slack 9.1. To make it work for Slack 10 I would need to use the gkrellm-2.2.4.tar.gz d/l and install it from source yeah?

gkrellm can be used in kde but i've always found it too be an ugly looking application, there are some some cool system monitors to be used with superkaramba.

try

www.kde-look.org

And the best one for superkaramba (in my humble opinion) is TDE - T Desktop Enhancements.
