Description:

SpecStatus is a multi-function system monitor based on kstatus v1.1 by karraskal.

SpecStatus includes all of the best features of kstatus, and adds to it with numerous improvements to "at-a-glance" readability, a simplified style, and default controls for the best music player in the world (amaroK of course).

SpecStatus has excellent visibility on both light and dark backgrounds, and a clean, Konsole-like style.

The graphics are taken from the excellent Black+White Icon theme - http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=24645

## INSTALLATION NOTE
This theme is designed to use a font from the artwiz-aleczapka pack. Unfortunately, SuperKaramba refuses to use this font unless it's installed system-wide. The theme should now work properly without the font installed.

The artwiz-aleczapka pack is available at:
http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/

Hi!

This is a great widget, I love it's simplicity.

I have made some improvements, first of all I make use of the `defaultfont´ tag and secondly I added two sensors for wlan quality and bit rate.

Maybe someone is interested in this, you can get the updated `SpecStatus.theme` file from this URL:
http://milianw.de/misc/linked/SpecStatus.theme

Simply put this file into `~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/SpecStatus` and overwrite the old one.

To the developer: It would be interesting to add a configuration applet so a user could activate wlan and also set the desired devices in a graphical way.

Thanks for the feedback, T3rm1n4t0r. I'll add that to the list of suggestions for the next version.

About that... I'm drawing up plans for SpecStatus 2.0, which is going to be cleaner, badder and better than before. I'm looking for your help!

I've got an open ear to any and all ideas for features. The sky's the limit, and anything goes. Tell me now what you'd like to see in SpecStatus 2.0, and there's a good chance it'll make it in!

ok pal, here we go:
1; to turn on/off some stuff as I said before(this is the only "important" and easy to implement)
2; my string "AMD Athlon(tm) XP ....." is so long that last few letters cross black border(check my "elite" screenshots here in screenshots section)
3;with these smaller fonts now, I think there could fit at least 3 lines so I could choose what disk partitions to show, for example /var /home / would be my preference. /var is same important as /. Or add /var simple as permanent.
4;for amarok, maybe to be able to show open file/dir dialog on right click for adding new/other files/dirs

This is my favorite status karamba. Am using it and love it. Maybe only thing I miss is options for add/remove parts, for example I would like to remove "time" and "kernel" section, and/or leave just cpu, mem, net and maybe amarok..
