I got it work, but not all the time. t-arduino can't always get into contact to the serial port. Sometimes it works, when I open another serial terminal, in example cutecom), but not every times.

I also understood "Min" and "Max". That's the range for measuring and displaying values. I couldn't raise them up beyond 99. Above that, only the two last digits are shown. Would be nice to expand that and to be able to choose your own measurement unit, not only degrees Celsius.

Once again, a very nice plasmoid.

The python sources are inside the plasmoid:
mv t-arduino.plasmoid t-arduino.zip
unzip t-arduino.zip
then look inside contents/code/main.py

The limitation of the max/min is due to the limitation of the lm35dz in celsius (-10 +250)

I have some problem with the check box (celsius/Fahrenheit) so i released only the celsius version (lm35dz read temperature in celsius).

Thank you for your comments!

I very nice plasmoid :-)

But I couldn't run it. My platform is kubuntu 9.04, KDE v4.2.2. I installed it via KDE, it appeared on my desktop and I could start the configuration, specially the Serial device (/dev/ttyUSB0 which is my correct port). I don't know the meaning of "Max" and "Min" and didn't change them. With a serial monitor I can see values, which are changing when using a potentiometer. But I didn't see any changes in t-arduino.

BTW: Are there anywhere the sources?
