Hey,awesome screenlet,works perfectly for me,but there seem to be some minor issues such as CPU spikes,looks like youll be doing some code cleaning so hopefully that will get sorted out.The spikes typically seem to depend on your refresh rate,so i increased the refresh rate in order to lower the spikes ;)

All in all a great screenlet for GNOME

Hello everyone,

As you can see I've been rather busy lately. I'm busy with school and I'm getting to the point to receive my bachelor degree in a few months. I just wanted to let you guys know that development in this screenlet is still being done. Just at a lower pace.

What is to come in the next release you ask? Here is a small addition list:

* Bios version
* Architecture (core name)
* Bustype
* Type of videoram (DDR2/DDR3/etc...)
* Shader Clock
* Number of stream units
* ROP units (raster operation)
* Fanspeed

And the finishing touch is that the processor load will be significantly lower!

I hope that I informed you guys enough for now.

Sincerely yours,

René Jansen

Hello everyone,

First I'd like to apologize for this late reaction. I had to go to GB for work for a week.

Anyway, I received some personal messages with the question to make the screenlet put out information the user only wants and not all information. As can be seen in the README file that's exactly what's on the TODO list. I will be working on that in the next few days.

I would also like to take the opportunity to tell all of you that you really need to update to the newest drivers and packages. Some people have outdated packages and my code relies on the newest ones I'm afraid.

Regards,

René

Looks nice!!

..but I also can't get it to work.
Is this dependent on driver version, GPU or motherboard chipset?

I have a 6600 with 169 drivers.

keep it up!!

Hi Ixlam,

As far as I know the screenlet is dependent on nvidia-glx-new, nvidia-settings and of course python (python is needed to run screenlets anyway). So as a total I can say: You need a Nvidia graphics card superior to the MX series. FX series should work but not all features work because these series don't have all the sensors. CPU/Motherboard chipsets and alike are not dependencies

I believe the 6600 should work. Maybe not all functions such as temperature (I don't know which card can do a specific feature). Nvidia MX series and lower won't work I guess.

But you can always give me the output from:

python ~/.screenlets/NVidia/NVidiaScreenlet.py

Regards,
René

...any idea why nothing seems to show up when I try to use this? FYI: My card is a GeForce 9800 GX2. I'm not voting bad because I sure could use this if I could get it to work.

I ran the command I sent it via your Gnome Look profile. Let me know if you need more info.

Hi. Why don't you join the 3rd-party-screenlets team ( https://launchpad.net/~3rd-party-screenlets-team ) That way, you can work directly in bzr (after you change something, you run one line in terminal, and it's uploaded). Packages are made, so your users get updates via the package manager.

Hello everyone,

The bug reported by dmolinap has been fixed in version 0.4. Issue was that some options in nvidia-settings don't apply to all types of monitors. Solved using xrandr to determine resolution.

Try re-installing the nvidia-settings package. I don't see why the frontendresolution wouldn't work. If the problem persist please mail me your nvidia driver version and your nvidia-settings version.

A few nvidia installations don't have output for frontendresolution. This is rather strange and I can't find the reason why. Usually the backendresolution works. So I'm going to add that in the updated version. Probably done somewhere upcoming weekend. Keep checking gnome-look.org for an update.

I hope you can wait a few days.

René

off topic: I wish there could be a standard in notation. It would save programmers a lot of time.

I'm sorry but I don't know spanish. Could you (or someone here at gnome-look.org) translate it? And if possible send me an email with details and reports of your problem.

I'm not particularly fluent in spanish either, even though I've had it in school for 3 years now, but this is what I understood (could be completely wrong, though):
"It doesn't work for me and I don't understand english, so I can't read the other posts to find out how others got it working.

Maybe somebody could fix this, because of what I've understood from the other posts, I'm not the only one with a problem"

Wow, looks pretty good for a translation attempt :D. Don't ask me to translate english text to spanish, though :P

Thank you for the translation mots.
But the problem remains I'm affraid. Unless I don't get a mail with the details and/or reports I can't do anything to help on my end.

Cool it loads up for me now and functions as advertised ;)

Hopefully it can be optimized a bit more..I get 20% cpu spikes every couple of seconds.Perhaps we need a configurable refresh time?

Also being able to pick our own fonts/colors would be a nice touch.

A couple minor annoyances.
-Very specific areas for grabbing/moving and selecting the options menu.We should be able to grab anywhere in the screenlet.
-Also my card is a "GeForce 7000M / nForce" and the text runs off the right edge of the background.

All in all this is a screenlet I will definitely use...good job :)

Hello Anduu,

I know about the CPU spikes, it also does that on my pc. I will look into that issue.

Concerning the refresh interval, fonts and colors, it should be easy to implement. Certainly going to be in an updated version.

The specific dragging area was/is annoying to me too. I'm still working on that issue but for the moment no success.

Making the screenlet wider isn't the best thing to do I believe considering the amount of workingspace being cut. To be able to fully show the GPU type I will let the user choose font sizes.

Regards,
René
