Description:

A Simple wireless signal meter.

Due to the lack of even a simple wireless meter I decided to make my own.
The graphics do need work but I felt I would get this out there and see how well it works for others.

It uses D-Bus to discover the wireless device so no configuration is needed, however this does need testing. Additionally it requires sysfs but I do not know if all wireless drivers use this interface reliably.

Anyhow, test away, feel free to comment and even help improve on this!
Last changelog:

11 years ago

24/09/2008 - v0.2:
Change to HAL net.interface
Use appropriate bar functions for drawing the graph. (should now work with SuperKaramba KDE3)
Fixed theme size to size of the meter itself.

26/09/2008 - v0.3:
Made the meter slimmer and make it look less like a battery monitor.
Check if the relevant sysfs file exists.

26/09/2008 - v0.4:
Now uses 'net.80211' in FindDeviceByCapability instead of just 'net'

30/09/2008 - v0.5:
Now retries wlan device detection if nothing was found first time. eg: in cases where a USB wlan device is plugged in or if manually loading a module after the theme has started.

06/10/2008:
Oops, I compressed using bzip and used .gz extension. Now compressed using gzip.
