Got it running. Edited to suit my simpler setup: single core, single processor; just / and swap partitions. Thanks.

Hi,

The one I downloaded was the 12.1 theme. It's very clean and looks especially nice on the the Slackware wallpaper I use. I just need to figure out how to modify it for a uni-processor then I'm good to go.

Thanks again for your work.

Read this on the KDE-Look page where you got the monitor?
Code:
You can tweak and customize this your self, all the info you need to do so is here:

http://karamba.sourceforge.net/?a=docs
Everything can be edited in the slackware_info_monitor.theme file.

Easiest way is to comment everything for #CPU1

A picture is worth a thousand words ... who said that?

I have not edited your file very much, but here is what displays
the monitor in that screenshot. You can also see GKrellM, which
I've been using for years.

In case I can elicit a response from someone, unlike me,
who has studied and learned bash or whatever ...

The DNS servers at my ISP don't return the correct addy
for my local server, which is a DynDNS address. Because,
in China they block DynDNS.org addresses. After 3 years,
there's one way I've found to keep it on the internet, and
that is using ddclient on the server. Even that fails at times,
and I have to use a proxy server to the DynDNS website, login,
and manually change the address. However, from my workstation,
I have know no command to add in ../slackware_info_monitor.theme
which will output my correct IP address.

There are other things I want to configure according to
my personal tastes in this nice monitor. Removing the extra
space where CPU1 used to be, etc.

Bruce Hill, if you want to remove the empty space the only way to do it (or the only clean way anyway) is to subtract a constant value from each "y=" AFTER the first CPU. The pixel difference between the last INFO entry (uptime) and the "Processors:" label is 190-165=25. Therefore, the difference between the "Usage:" entry and the "Memory Usage" label should be 25. The current value of 325-260=65. 65-25=40. Therefore, subtract 40 from EVERY y= value starting at the "Memory Usage:" label (Simple stuff, and I assume you knew that, but oh well).

As for your IP problem, there are several sites that check your IP and you may be able to parse them fairly easily in the same manner. http://myip.dk/ is very simple and may do the trick (assuming it isn't blocked or anything). If the site design changes you may have to tweak your script, but right now `grep \<title\> index.html | cut -d \ -f3 | cut -d \< -f1` will do it, and so the following line should work:
Code:
text x=135 y=490 sensor=program program="rm -rf .jftgwh ; mkdir .jftgwh ; cd .jftgwh ; wget http://myip.dk/ && grep \<title\> index.html | cut -d \  -f3 | cut -d \< -f1 ; cd .. ; rm -rf .jftgwh" align=left
For other possible sites (if that doesn't work), google "my IP". It should be noted that your monitoring line is split in two (that often happens when using a word-wrapping text editor), so that may be your problem right there -- but it may not be.

I haven't edited the spacing, but it doesn't look too bad. Changed the date to show day-month-year, changed the HD usage to show Slackware, Shared ( a 1 GB fat32, for downloaded documents, text files with useful info, etc), and XP Pro.
Interesting watching the CPU, RAM, and swap usages - when running a SlackBuild, for instance.

quick question regarding the requirements, is the nVidia driver absolutely essential or will the Ati FGLRX one work too?

Thanks

Yes, it'll work, but you'll have to edit it. Version 1 doesn't do anything with the video card, so that'll work on your setup by default (though you would still have to customize it to your system -- for example, your partition setup). Version 2 could probably be adapted to your setup, but you'd need to change some things to get it to read the temperature from your ATI card instead of the nVidia card (if your card supports temperature monitoring).

Well my card is in a laptop (Radeon Xpress 200M) so i do not think i will have to worry about it. My main concern was with the Nvidia drivers and if they had any graphical impact on the program.

Thanks!

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.
Perseverance pays off!!

I finally got the readings for each core temp. I created a bash script that I have the theme call upon.Here's the relevant info:

Theme:

Code:
sensor=program program="sh /home/sqdnguns/.superkaramba/slackware_info_monitor/./temp1.sh" line=1 color=255,51,0 interval=3000

sensor=program program="sh /home/sqdnguns/.superkaramba/slackware_info_monitor/./temp2.sh" line=1 color=255,51,0 interval=3000
Bash Script:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
echo $(($(cat /sys/bus/pci/drivers/k8temp/0000\:00\:18.3/temp1_input) / 1000))

#!/bin/bash
echo $(($(cat /sys/bus/pci/drivers/k8temp/0000\:00\:18.3/temp3_input) / 1000))
There is probably an easier way to do it but hey, it works!!

I'm tweaking the theme even more now that I bought a 22 inch Westinghouse L2210NW LCD on sale last night @ Best Buy. Awesome resolution @ 1680x1050.

Here is a screenshot, it's FINAL.

I added a few things and cleaned it up a bit. If you'll notice at the top of the theme, I am pulling in the latest 12.1 Changelog info, convenient?

If anyone wants this theme, I'll post it to KDE-Look if I get some feedback.
