Description:

Superkaramba plasma system monitor widget. Based on the Crystal monitor 9. This one is minimalistic. No graphs or bars just plain text data. Does not take much resources or space - very lightweight. Just essential data - nothing more. Shows each CPU core separate. Default network interface is wlan0. Simplified temperature reading. For people who want a small system monitor. Tested on KDE 4.2.

Hi, I'm Crystal Monitor developer. I'm interested of including this theme in CrystalMonitor extended package - you can easily switch different CrystalMonitor themes - and forks without need to download themes again...

BTW: I'm working on new version ... which will have a GUI...

Ouh, could you file this under Plasmoids Scripts please? Then it could be installed easily via KGetHotNewStuff. :)

Thanks for Your comments. In openSUSE I only have THRM dir in /proc/acpi/thermal_zone. Version 0.2 should work fine regardless of what this directory is called as long as the structure is in place. If anyone knows a better way of retrieving temperature let me know.

Can you show me the result of:
cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

what distro are you using?

Well temp did not work for me in the original crystal 9 so I changed it.

Could you look around /proc/acpi/ maybe the temp is there somewhere?

Or is there a better way of retrieving it?

I will look into that.

[marco@Marco-Laptop ~]$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
cat: /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature: No such file or directory

but:
[marco@Marco-Laptop ~]$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM/temperature
temperature: 43 C

I'm on arch-linux
