Description:

Karmack is an amusing CPU load monitor applet for the KDE kicker bar which uses the the form of the classic Doom game's marine face. The poor guy will bleed when your machine is heavily used. Other effects are triggered on different window manager actions.

An amusing way to see system load at a glimpse, and also brings back nice memories of that mythical game :)

First of all, I found this aplet to be very amusing. Great idea! But I'm wandering if you're breaking any copyrights with it? It looks preety much like the original doom guy, and i'm sure its not free. But anyway, I don't like the situation when the guy "stares" at the newly opened window, especially at the startup. And a transparent background would be welcome.

Just my .02

lol ... everytime a need a laugh I just put a little load on my box =D
unfortunately when kicker size is small/tiny (24px high) the image gets cut off ... any chance this will be fixed in the next version ? =)

I got these errors too, it's because you haven't installed kdebase* (don't remember full name). I used MandrakeControlCenter to install the kdebase*. I don't get those errors anymore but I still can't get the applet to show up. I even played around with changing the install directories (done by passsing stuff to configure) from '/usr/local' to '/usr/share'. I really want to use this applet!

Really cool ! There seems to be too much latency, though. The guy's still almost dead five seconds after cpu usage dropped from 100% to 0%. Maybe there should be an option to change the update interval ?

Hi. I installed karmack a while ago, and I can't get it to work. First I had some troubles with a .la file, which I apparently later fixed. But now when I add the karmack applet to the kicker, it doesnt show any pictures at all. Also, it crashes the kicker if I double or right click a couple of times the area where karmack is supposed to be. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I'm a newbie, so it's better to explain a lot :)

This applet is awesome!
I have used version 0.1 all the time and I cannot live without it anymore. It gives your CPU a face!
Great work!
