Uptime
E-mail(POP3) Checking
Current Weather (from weather.yahoo.com)

Percent free CPU
Free RAM
Free Swap
Free space on Hard Drives (/ and /mnt/windows by default)
Traffic in/out on eth0
XMMS Progress
XMMS Title (Scrolling!)
and has XMMS Controls

To have your cities weather displayed, edit scripts/weather.pl.
To have the XMMS title shown, make sure to edit scripts/xmms_title.pl
Make sure to put in your username/password/server in scripts/mails.pl to check your e-mail.

---------------------------
Make sure you INSTALL the included font.
---------------------------
This is a first try, please comment, I will try to make changes.


The instructions in the script assume you look for your city from ca.weather.yahoo.com. If you do not, the last section of your url will be something like CAXX0207_f.html, so your country code would be CAXX and city code would be 0207.

Due to the horrible slowing effects of Karamba on my pII 350, I have frozen my own work on the theme. I may pick it back up when I get a new computer in a few months. As well, if anyone has suggestions for it, I will still take them and try to do work, but currently, nothing under my own initiative.

New version make Superkaramba crashes. And weather script still doesn't work. I changed the weather script for my city (jerez, Spain), and nothing happens.

I am aware of the crash, I started playing around with the python, but have put no real work into it. Just remove the The.py file, and it will run fine.

As for the weather, I just tried it here for jerez, spain, and it worked fine.

Make sure you use SPXX for the country code and 0105 for the city code. Let me know if you still have problems

The background currently is transparent. I forget the percentage though. Perhaps I will include multiple backgroun files with varying % of transparency.

I used GKrellm before, but decided not to use e-mail checking, due to some of the crazy stuff I do with my boxes. I do recognize that it would be a nice feature, so I will put it in for the next release(unless I fix something before that)

You've created a Karamba version of Gkrellm. ;)

It looks cool anyway.

Cheers!
