the hddtemp line doesn't display any info. I made hddtemp to work without root priviledges (with 'sudo chmod u+s /usr/bin/hddtemp', and it works on the command line without using sudo) but it doesn't display any info in py text monitor. I'm on Arch Linux and i have the latest version of the app from AUR.

Okay it was bug in dataengine. I fixed it in 1.4 version of DE (1.5.1-2 package version in AUR)

It doesn't show the temperarature when KDE is restarted. You have to uncheck and then check again the hddtemp line in py text monitor to show the temp numbers.

hmm, I can not reproduce this bug ( I added the label to panel, then stoped kdm servive. After starting kde again (using systemd) all works normally

Well, maybe it has something to do with the way i enabled hddtemp to work without root priviledges (chmod u+s). Also, 'systemctl status hddtemp.service' shows that the service is active and running, but 'systemd-analyze blame' that shows every service's load time at startup doesn't list hddtemp.service.

hi
tnx for the comment =) I dont use mpd, therefore it is not implemented in the current version. But it is sound good and I will add support of some music players in the next version.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND THANK YOU! Finally a functional and sensible system monitor.

I would suggest the same thing, MPD monitoring as well. And if possible date and time too as contrary to all the other DE/WMs it's nearly impossible to have this basic and functional date and time scheme in one legible line in KDE panel:

11:52 Sat 29 Oct

All of these info may require a wide panel, but then one can use a separate panel for just py-text-monitor either on another edge of the desktop or next to the regular one if one has a big screen.

hmm, Im sorry. But I've added datetime label in the 1.5.1 version =) It is in simple and not adjustable long format that defined by your locale. In my case it is smth like:
Wed Nov 6 04:45:00 2013

Well, it might be adjustable in future versions then! Besides, number-text-number-text order is much easier for eyes.

So, music player support was added. Unfortunately, there is no configuration of connection to mpd socket, therefore monitor uses default settings (localhost:6600).
And I dont add date and time support now because I think there is a good plasmoid for this

Thank you. I forgot about the good developer of adjustableclock who has written the right code for such a date-time scheme. Its text size and py-text's are different, but one can live with that.
