KDE comes with the info center ( under system ). It has two options, the one you probably want is storage devices. Theres also KDirStat for more info.

Sure does .... here at least.

All you need to do is click one of the mountpoints,
and in the stats it displays there's a section called

FREE :}

It's faster to use the commandline in
99% of the times mate, you've asked
for a graphical interface ;)

On my system gkrellm is the third chubbiest
application, right after X and Mozilla, fatter
than my windowmanager :}

Sometimes I wonder whether it makes ANY
sense at all ... 6.6MB memory usage for that
info? ;)


Cheers,
Tink
