Kima - kicker monitoring applet
Various KDE Extensions
Score 82%
Description:

This applet monitors various temperature, frequency and fan sources in your kicker panel.
Make sure you have enabled a supported kernel module.

Homepage:
http://kima.sourceforge.net

Features:
supported thermal sources:
- the Linux ACPI Thermal Zone driver. The corresponding kernel module is called thermal.
- the thermal sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the IBM Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS) driver. The corresponding kernel module is called hdaps.
- the Omnibook Configuration Tools & Patches. The corresponding kernel module is called omnibook.
- the iBook G4 CPU and GPU thermal zones. It may work on other Apple machines as well (please let me know).
- the thermal sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the CPU thermal sensor of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.
- the GPU thermal sensors of nvidia-settings (provided by the nVidia GPU card driver tools)
- the termal sensors provided by hddtemp daemon (make sure hddtemp runs on 127.0.0.1 port 7634 before kima starts)

supported frequency sources:
- the Linux kernel /proc/cpuinfo interface
- the Linux kernel cpufreq subsystem

supported fan sources:
- the fan sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the fan sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the fan sources of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.

misc sources:
- CPU usage source
- uptime source that displays the current system uptime
- battery source that displays the current state of charge of your batteries

misc:
- cpufreqd control module to switch cpufreqd profiles via cpufreqd remote interface

installation:
grab a appropriate package for your distribution or the sources below.

using the source:
run configure
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)

build the sources
make

install the applet (with appropriate rights)
su -c 'make install'

finally add the applet to your KDE panel (RMB on kicker).
Last changelog:

9 years ago

Kima 0.7.4:
- CPU usage source added
- russian translation added

Kima 0.7.3.2:
- thread wakeups minimized which should lead to a better powertop result
- crash fix: prevent i18n calls from within threads (it seems i18n isn't thread safe)

Kima 0.7.3.1:
- the 0.7.3 tag was inconsistent to the released tar.gz so we decided to release 0.7.3.1
- improvements regarding the dbus error handling
- XNVCtrl support fixed
- small autoconf/automake script improvements

Kima 0.7.3:
- more robust battery source in case of libhal/dbus errors
- since Kima 0.7.2 was already tagged we jump to 0.7.3 the changeog lists the never released 0.7.2 though

Kima 0.7.2:
- battery source added that displays the current state of charge of your batteries through libhal
- nvidia thermal source: optional configure switch added to query libXNVCtrl.a instead of nvidia-settings
- updated admin directory that supports automake 1.10
- swedish, turkish and indonesian translation added (thanks to Oskar Ellström, UÄŸur í‡etin and Donnie S Bhayangkara)
- translation fixes
- processes started by kicker does not exit correctly because of kimas' use of QProcess. KProcess fixes the problem

Kima 0.7.1:
- uptime source added
- initial source scanning parallelized
- spanish translation added
- hungary translation added
- german translation fixes
- hddtemp source bugfix, in case reading from network failed
- preferences bugfix, an enabled source was not displayed on kicker
- cursor fixed if one drags a source and clicks right mouse button
- encoding of the degree sign is now UTF8

Kima 0.7:
- support for moving the sources via drag and drop added
- support for hddtemp daemon added (http://www.guzu.net/linux/hddtemp.php)
- german translation added
- repainting of the sources improved

great and consistent app. just one thing:
it freezes my kicker every 2 seconds for about 500ms. the whole kicker is then blocked until cpu-info has updated its values.

using kde 3.5.5 latest svn

thanks for your input. as discussed via IM it seems to be lm_sensors related because a cat /sys/bus/i2c/devices/*/fan1_input also hangs for a while. i'll try to find a workaround for that

hi! i just wrote a patch which fixes the problem. it uses threads to read-ahead data in background. feel free to do what you want with it :)

Hi, great apps.

I've build CPUInfo RPM for SLED 10, available at my site.

my webhost domain is temporary inaccessible, because some idiots use it for phising activity.
they provided me with a temporary domain at http://donnie.911mb.com.
if you have trouble downloading the rpm, just replace the 110mb.com with 911mb.com

just to let you know that i don't use SLED 10 anymore and switch to openuse 10.2 thus my SLED 10 RPM is no longer available.
I've also build kima 0.6 for opensuse 10.2, the difference with the one Roul made is mine only 89.6KB (seperating the debuginfo files to debuginfo package)

if you computer is not a notebook you could try lm_sensors to gain more sources.

I tried to compile it, but got the error when doing a ./configure --prefix=/usr:
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
Is it probably because Kubuntu Edgy ships with X11 7.1 ?

Hmm, maybe you need some *-devel packets first. I guess the dapper debian package above should work out of the box.

same problem here:

As I said above - try again with the installed X devel packages or use the binary .deb package.

How can I change the frecuency in cpu Info when I'm not in the root account, I have already run the cpufreqd -D, but in a non root account it cant be detected by CPU INFO, please need help?

Report

Val

I guess you need to tweak /etc/cpufreqd.conf to allow your non-root users access administrative interface. This is not difficult - you can find all the details in the man page.

Dude, this is exactly what I have been waiting for! Excellent job.

Note: In order to switch to celcius, you need to switch from "Imperial" to "Metric" in your system settings for numbers, conversions, and/or measurements.

how do you update the way temperature is displayed? ie. Celsius/Fahrenheit

Report

You can switch to the Imperial/Metric system via kcontrol: "Regional & Accessibility"->"Country/Region & Language"->"Other".
