I've been asked several times to post this Karamba Sys-Monitor I've put together... so here it is..
I've worked to keep it clean and simple and relevant, I'm not a big fan of all the tacky icons seen on other sys monitors.
I've opted not to merge the upload and download windows into one, as it looked cluttered and confusing, it takes more space this way but gives me the info at a glance...thats what works for me.
Due to the fact that the background image is very transparent I've had to create a second darker variation to suit lighter wallpaper images. You will have to edit the TechMon.theme file to change several values to suit your system, the lines are marked out, you can miss them. This will change sensor, network and hard drive mount point values to reflect your system.
*** If your network adapter differs from ETH0, please change the coresponding text in the network section to reflect your adapter type.
For the XMMS control, you will need to install XMMSCTRL, and for the XMMS controls to function the Toggle Lock Position has to be ON, just right click on the active theme and you will see the option.
The sensor Max values for the current system can be obtained by typing "sensors" in a term window.
Oh and yes, don't forget to install LM-Sensors if you don't already have it!
*** Remember to install the FFF Estudio Extended font, its in the Fonts Directory, then restart your X session to load, If you wish to keep the font that is, it was the only suitable Tech font I could find in Pixel format.
Enjoy, report and bugs, its a bit ruff and ready on the back end, I'm just a hack at this stuff, there are no dynamic options its all theme commands not Python Script, Coding is not my thing, Fortran and COBOL in College put me off for life ;)
And If all else fails RTFM, there is one on the Super Karamba Site, that's what I had to do, and learned that most problems are caused by PEBKAC.
If there are people who have wallpaper images that are not compatable with the light and dark backgrounds I have provided, reply here and I will see what I can do about posting more suitable versions.
