Description:

NetVU after some personal thought and some requests is now available! This is not a real VU though... The range of possible network traffic values even on the same computer is extremely large. Even a logarithmic equation describing the needle's movement (the inverse, more or less, of the DiscVU case) could leave many uncovered areas. I chose the solution on many older analog V/I/R polymeters used in electronic labs: short range linear needle and a scale indicator. This way, NetVU covers with the same detail cases of 1-15kb/s, great for a dial-up ppp0, or even up to the dizzyngly extreme of 150Mb/s that even a gigabit ethernet will not saturate.

v. 0.2:
NetVU version 0.2, uses a kdialog combobox to select easily and on-the-fly the desired interface to monitor. Interfaces are discovered through /proc/net/dev and thus you will be presented with interfaces even in the "down" status.

Love this whole theme. A refreshing change from matrix-wannabees or Mac-a-likes. One question though, from the screenshots it's clearly possible to run multiple instances. How? I've tried copies in different directories, renamed the .theme, .py or .pyc, files, singly and in combination, etc etc. No luck yet. Any clues????

Congrats again on a splendid effort.

Fixed it!
For reference, the key is to start them with a command line, rather than a right-click on an existing one.

Way to live up to a challenge, man.

The SFX idea mentioned above would be cool. Not necessary, but cool.

Even without those, this is an amazing Karamba theme. Kudos to you!

this is why I installed superK in the first place - nice eye candy.

Another option which would be nice to add, would be the somewhat quiet sound of solenoid switches, every time the tube image changes.

The user could switch this on or off at will.

This would give it the distinctive "thunk" sound the old machines used to have when the digits changed.

On another note, the wonderful RAM meter needs another tube.

It can't handle 4 or 5 digits.

Wonderful stuff!
