Hi,

I really love this applet on the desktop, especially in "naked" style. However, with a 16:9 screen, vertical desktop space is crucial. Would it be possible to add another desktop applet layout which is more horizontally aligned, with the current weather left of the forecast rather than one above the other?

TIA,

Another detail I forgot to mention:

The laptop is a Thinkpad T60. All three values are supposed to be taken from /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal. The kima configuration dialog contains the words "This source is provided by the ACPI driver for IBM ThinkPads."

HTH,

Sorry, I should have mentioned that. I am using kima 0.7.4. Nevertheless, the number of additional interrupts is about 80-100/sec.

Hi,

Kima is a nice tool, but there's a problem when running it on a laptop.

Usually my laptop has < 20 interrupts/sec in idle mode, 15-18 of them are ACPI interrupts, as can be seen when running Powertop(*). As soon as kima is running, the number of ACPI interrupts goes up to about 100/sec, which wakes up the CPU unnecessarily.

I have kima configured to monitor CPU, GPU and HDD temperature, nothing else.

What is the reason that kima needs so many interrupts to monitor only three values? Is there a chance to lower the number of interrupts/sec to keep the CPU in C3/C4 as much as possible?


Thanks in advance,
Corinna
