    Desktop Status Monitor Thingy????


    Hi Guys,

    http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/teams..._Schnitzer.png

    At that link, on the right hand side there is a little program that looks really neat... displaying all the Hard Drive space, RAM space etc...

    I had something like that when i was stuck on windows (only a few days ago!!)

    I realise it's in a gnome screen shot, but being very new to linux, and using Suse i don't know... maybe there is something like that for KDE??? Or maybe that little program there might work with KDE? either way i have NO idea what it's called, but if anyone knows of an app for a desktop staus monitor that is really pretty like that ;o) would be nice to know

    Cheers!!!

    Yes, it's called SuperKaramba.
    Look here: http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/

    I use Gnome, so I can't help you further with this. But good luck

    It actually is gDesklets, and it will work fine with any WM. You just have to install all the gnome dependencies.

    It's gDesklets, but he asked if something that's available for KDE.
    SuperKaramba was written specific for KDE.
    Most will work with each other, if you have the libraries installed.
    If you run KDE only and you want to run gDesklets you'll need some parts of the Gnome libs.

    Code:
    illusion ~ # emerge -p gdesklets-core
    
    These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
    
    Calculating dependencies ...done!
    [ebuild  N    ] dev-python/pyorbit-2.0.0  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-base/gnome-desktop-2.6.2  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-base/gnome-panel-2.6.2  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-base/eel-2.6.2  
    [ebuild  N    ] net-print/libgnomecups-0.1.10  
    [ebuild  N    ] net-print/gnome-cups-manager-0.23  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-base/nautilus-2.6.3-r1  
    [ebuild  N    ] x11-libs/libzvt-2.0.1-r2  
    [ebuild  N    ] dev-python/gnome-python-2.0.2  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-base/libgtop-2.6.0  
    [ebuild  N    ] gnome-extra/gdesklets-core-0.26.2
    Which can be a hefty list of deps.

    im just trying to help. i know you need gnome libs, but its not that big of a deal to install them. especially if you have a decent package manager.

    edit: wtf is up with the quote tags?
