Hi there
I cant install this plasmoid in Jaunty beta.It compiles and copies itself fine,but I dont see it in the dialog to add.

Could you help?

Do you think you could start increasing the version (in small steps) on each new release? It would make it much easier to keep the different versions apart and create packages for them ;)

Really nice, but i would like it more without the black frame around it, it will be more integrated on the panel... Or maybe you can add an option to take it off (and also change colors and things to show :D)

Mandriva 2009.1 rpm here:
http://www.latuberia.net/rpms/2009.1/Simplemonitor-0.1-1.mdv2009.1.i586.rpm

Maybe you should made black border dissapear when Simplemonitor is over taskbar.

Hi, than you for this nice applet. Since KDE4.2 it fails to compile with this error:

-- Found KDE 4.2 include dir: /usr/kde/4.2/include
-- Found KDE 4.2 library dir: /usr/kde/4.2/lib64
-- Found the KDE4 kconfig_compiler preprocessor: /usr/kde/4.2/bin/kconfig_compiler
-- Found automoc4: /usr/bin/automoc4
CMake Error at /usr/kde/4.2/share/apps/cmake/modules/FindPlasma.cmake:13 (message):
FindPlasma.cmake is deprecated. Now with KDE 4.2 Plasma is part of kdelibs
and automatically found using find_package(KDE4) instead.

Replace the variables previously coming from FindPlasma.cmake as follows:

PLASMA_OPENGL_FOUND -> KDE4_PLASMA_OPENGL_FOUND

PLASMA_LIBS -> KDE4_PLASMA_LIBS

PLASMA_INCLUDE_DIR -> KDE4_INCLUDE_DIR or KDE4_INCLUDES, should be already
set anyway

PLASMA_FOUND -> nothing, it's always there if KDE4, version 4.2 or newer
has been found.

If you see this error message in a module within KDE/, update it from svn,
it has been fixed already.

I think it was these lines I used to fix that error

# Delete deprecated commands to cmake
sed -i 's/find_package(Plasma REQUIRED)//' CMakeLists.txt || die "sed failed"
sed -i 's/\([^_]\)PLASMA_LIBS/\1KDE4_PLASMA_LIBS/' CMakeLists.txt || die "sed failed"

Hi,
I love this little applet,but I have recently upgraded from hardy 8.04 to 8.10 and cant seem to install the applet.Previously when this happened I just manually copied the .so file where it should be and things used to work.
Maybe things have changed a bit and the path is different possibly.

Do enlighten.

You chould probably recompile it all.

KDE4 is now installed in /usr instead of /usr/lib/kde4.

Hi,
Great work on this one.Good idea to keep it simple and visual.Just what I was looking for.

Only thing is that the plasmoid doesn't stay the same size on next login. I could lock all applets, I know, but the others maintain their sizes.

Could you add that to your todo list.

I don't have this problem... Did you put it on the desktop or in a panel?

Nice plasmoid! (Now I just need to find one for disk activity :P)

I have created an ebuild for it. It is tested and works with "kde4-overlay" but should with small/no modifications also work with "kde4-experimental".

Thanks for the ebuild ! I added it to the download list.

I'll try to add disk activity information if I find some time...

Thanks to users in #gentoo-kde at freenode I have now created an updated ebuild for the ':live' slot.

It is now available in the kde-crazy overlay :)

For those using 4.1 but not the kde-crazy overlay; here is the ebuild:

Compiles and works good on Kubuntu Hardy KDE 4.1.
Can I change the refresh rate and colors?

Report

Not yet !

However, refresh interval and history length are defined (in ms) at the top of the .cpp file ; you can change them as fits your needs, and recompile the applet.

The colors are hardcoded in the 'paintInterface' function.
