Talking SuperKaramba Theme for Slackware


Hola Slackers!

I just finished working on a SuperKaramba theme for my box and figured I'd share it with other Slackers.

Slackware Info Monitor is just a simple basic monitor with a touch of Slackware added to it. It includes info about your system, time, date, CPU usage, memory usage, internal/external IP addresses for eth0, and partition use.

You can tweak and customize this your self, all the info you need to do so is here:

http://karamba.sourceforge.net/?a=docs

The size of this theme is 240 X 660, no background image at all.

Hope you fellow Slackers enjoy, maybe I'll make some more now that I know it's not difficult to do.

Hey, thanks SqdnGuns!

I just adapted an old superkaramba.SlackBuild from Alien BOB; then
d/led superkaramba-0.39.tar.gz, your 79238-slackware_info_monitor.tar.gz,
and built and installed a Slackware package on my test box. It looks nice!

There are items that will take reconfiguring, but I really like it. I've
wanted a SuperKaramba monitor for a while, and this is the first one that
has been as simple, but complete, for my tastes.

The invisible theme is what I like best ... use it with GKrellM, also.

Great, glad that you like it. As you can tell, I like to keep it simple and clean.

I meant to thank you for the theme earlier but forgot. It's the first time I've actually enjoyed having a monitor sitting on my desktop (or anywhere else), and I've customized it to monitor the CPU temperature of both cores and even added a section to display the song I'm listening to in Amarok, along with the cover image. Very nice stuff -- thanks again.

I appreciate the compliment!

I wanted to do this one because everything that I have seen are to "busy"...and or a drain on resources...simple and clean, that's the way I like it.

I think I may add CPU temp for both cores as well, just been kinda lazy lately.

It looks a lot like conky but seems to have better invisibility on the background, and it has the slackware logo. gonna try it out and i may end up switching.

Just uploaded v2.0 of this theme, you can find it here:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=80971

If anyone knows how I can get the temp for each core to use in this theme, please let me know.

I made a separate request in this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ensors-641529/

For the time being, I am using the following for the core temps:

Code:
sensor=program program="cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature | awk '{print $2}'" line=1 interval=3000
Enjoy and feel free to make some recommendations.

SqdnGuns, I'm just using the output of the program `sensors`, which is configured to give me the temperature of each core of my AMD Athlon X2 CPU. Depending on your hardware, `sensors` can also give the temperature, (fan speed?) etc. of other hardware as well.

Yeah, I can see all the info from the "sensors" command but I have no idea what the command should be for the theme. Below is what I am using............

Code:
sensor=program program="cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature | awk '{print $2}'" line=1 interval=3000
I have been reading and searching but I have either overlooked it or my brain is failing to absorb it, more like the latter of the two.

Here is my "sensor" output:

Code:
k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:
             +41C
Core1 Temp:
             +38C

it8716-isa-0290
Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore:     +1.10 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
VDDR:      +2.48 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
+3.3V:     +1.78 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
+5V:       +5.59 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +6.85 V)
+12V:     +11.97 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max = +16.32 V)
in5:       +1.17 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
in6:       +2.86 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +4.08 V)
5VSB:      +4.89 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +5.13 V)
VBat:      +3.06 V
fan1:     1454 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
fan2:     1102 RPM  (min =    0 RPM)
temp1:       +35C  (low  =  +127C, high =   +65C)   sensor = diode
temp2:       +39C  (low  =  +127C, high =  +127C)   sensor = thermistor
temp3:       +25C  (low  =  +127C, high =  +127C)   sensor = thermistor
vid:      +1.525 V
Oi, I have headache.

SqdnGuns, that's an interesting parsing problem. Mine is simple because only my CPU is being monitored and nothing else, so I just grep for C. You'd have to come up with some interesting way of parsing that if you want to make it useful -- plus it would differ for everyone, especially if they have a different CPU (single core, quad core, intel, AMD, ...). It's really messy, so I can't really provide any consistent way to add the feature -- I just know that I figured out a way that works for me.

Yeah, it looks good. Neater and more useful than some of the stuff some people litter their desktops with.

Glad that you like it. Are you talking about both versions I have done?
