    To have cool gadgets on your desktop you have to install Superkaramba. a lot of gadgets can be found on kde-look site.

    well i downloaded superkaramba and after tons of time typing ./configure it kept asking for weird libraries etc. which i got from the mandriva cd and at last it gives me this

    Superkaramba can't be compiled
    because of missing Python libraries/headers.

    what libraries?? i installed all the python crap from the CD and it still wont compile the ting >( well anyways any specific library/header its looking for??


    well this is part of what it says...

    checking for MAXPATHLEN... 4096
    checking for Python directory... /usr/local
    checking for Python2.4... header no library no modules /usr/lib/python2.4
    checking for Python2.3... header no library no modules no
    checking for Python2.2... header no library no modules no
    checking for Python2.1... header no library no modules no
    checking for Python2.0... header no library no modules no
    checking for Python1.5... header no library no modules no
    checking for libxmms... ./configure: line 42898: xmms-config: command not found
    ./configure: line 42900: xmms-config: command not found
    no
    checking for main in -lknewstuff... yes
    checking for main in -lkvm... no
    checking if doc should be compiled... yes
    checking if superkaramba should be compiled... no
    configure: creating ./config.status
    fast creating Makefile
    fast creating doc/Makefile
    fast creating doc/superkaramba/Makefile
    fast creating superkaramba/Makefile
    fast creating superkaramba/doc/Makefile
    fast creating superkaramba/icons/Makefile
    fast creating superkaramba/mimetypes/Makefile
    fast creating superkaramba/src/Makefile
    config.pl: fast created 8 file(s).
    config.status: creating config.h
    config.status: config.h is unchanged
    config.status: executing depfiles commands

    Superkaramba can't be compiled
    because of missing Python libraries/headers.

    Seeing as you are using Mandriva you might as well use the package shipped with it. Try going to MCC and installing it there in add/remove software or from the command line
    Code:
    urpmi superkaramba
    This will need to be done as root.

    Sometimes people will use ksim to monitor activity. It is not as configurable, and quite basic in appearance but will do the job. Just right click on the kicker (taskbar) and select add > to panel > ksim
