Description:

Displays your hard disk drives and removable devices dynamically.
Need python-qt3 and python-imaging in order to work.

Here it comes again :)

v1.4 is a WIP (Work In Progress) release, and just a milestone on the way to 1.5, wich will feature a new config window, with much more options.

I still wish to change the hdd monitor basic skin, so if you've skinned it already, please send to packadal@gmail.com :)

WARNING : you *MUST* click the "apply changes" button in order for changes to take effect
I know this is clumsy, and i'll be working on it for 1.5

If anyone thinks about an improvement, please explain what you want, as i'm open to any suggestion (i.e. i added the transparency options on demand)
my e-mail is still packadal@gmail.com so send any suggestions you have. Hdd monitor is designed to fill YOUR needs ;)


---- how to skin hdd monitor ----

The skin must be of 4 files, named as follow :
* top.png : the top of the theme
* bottom.png : need an explanation ?
* hdd.png : the background image of each and every device
* vumeter.png : the bar image itself
* button.png : the unmount button

The images can be any size, the only thing you have to do is create a skin.conf (there is an example in the package) with the x and y positions of the bar on the hdd.png.

----- Next version info -----

* skin support improvements
* config window improvements
(in order to enable the user to show the device label, do per-device specfic configuration, etc )
-- Please wait, this may take some time due to real-life issues --

Ask for any feature you want, i'll try and do it if i got enough time :-)

That's a cool idea.

Can't wait til it loads a mounted disk without a theme reload!

Thanks!
