Description:

The aim of this screenlet is to provide a visually consistent and pleasant set of desktop meters.

Heavily based on Paul Ashton's AllCoreCPUUsage , I added a higher degree of customization and a bit of eye candy... plus, of course, more types of meters.

Currently it can display:
- Cpu usage - all cores
Cpu frequency
- Real-time process monitoring
- RAM and Swap usage
- Network load (all interfaces)
- Hard Disk usage - all mounted
partitions

Please note: this is my first Python program ;)

TODO:
- Add more meter types... maybe
temperatures and syslog?
- Events, events, events

PD: Changes to Shiny border color won't take effect until screenlet is restarted or size is changed. I can't figure if it's my fault or screenlets options' callbacks are broken.

Feedback is welcome :)

Since I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 there seems to be some kind of bug. Even if I use no transparency, the background behind the text is completely transparent and parts of the text, too. That makes the text unreadable :(
In Ubuntu 10.04 it worked great.

Here is a screenshot of the problem: http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/7653/screenshotwq.jpg

I'm using this to replace conky, but there are a few issues.

First, the CPU graph (in graph mode) doesn't seem to scale. If i make the height something like 20, the graph itself doesn't seem to change. It's like i have to set the height to 100 or 150 or something in order to see the whole graph.

Also, the processes graph isn't working. I just get blank bars with "0%" at the end.

Finally, it would be nice if there was a way to unify the appearances. It's a pain to have to go through and change all the settings one by one in order to get a consistent look.

Other than that, sweet screenlet. I'll see if i can solve the two bugs myself. I'll let you know.

Oh, i forgot...turning off the text shadow doesn't work, nor does setting the shadow opacity to 0. Instead, it's like the shadow becomes white rather than transparent.

Thank you :)

I'd like to add temperatures/voltages next, but there is a problem with that: lmsensors gets too many sensors and/or wrong measures (especially for top and bottom limits), and i'd like to keep Infobox as much configuration-free as possible.
Anyway, if you have any suggestion about what sensor you'd like to see next, it will be welcome :)

Btw, it uses too much cpu for you? On my system it uses about 4%.
I was thinking of caching background images, it should have a small memory footprint and increase eficiency.
