Gnome Equivalent to Santafu


Hi,

Im still sort of a Linux n00b and im looking for recommendations for a hardware monitoring utility for Linux in the Gnome environment. Im running FedoraCore3 and have LMsensors installed and prefer Gnome over KDE, but I am not fond of Gkrelm or whatever that side bar monitoring utility is called. In KDE I currently use Santafu (http://santafu.sourceforge.net/) and enjoy its simple yet informative GUI (http://santafu.sourceforge.net/snapshot.png). Does anyone know a program simmilar to this thats compatible with Gnome other than that gkrelm or whatever its called? Santafu is specifcally for KDE, the site says. Thanks.

Santafu should still work in Gnome. If you have all the KDE libraries installed, then Santafu should still work.

What about using torsmo? go to www.lynucs.org and search for it to see what it looks like. It's a text based hardware monitor that sits on your background.

Heres my shot (its the app on the top right) http://www.lynucs.org/index.php?scre...b9832&p=screen

It's a bit complicated to set up but ask for help, I can give you my configs if you need them. I don't have it, but you can also show temperatures and other things.
