Simple System Monitor
System Software
Score 76%
Description:

This is a very simple system monitor, but it's somewhat different from others since instead of displaying various kind of graphs, the load of the system is determined by a little spinning square. The faster this square spins, the more busy your system is (and yes, you can change its color). It also have a popup menu to see cpu and memory usage in greater details.

[09.10.2006]
This project is on hiatus right now. I don't have much free time these days, and with KDE 4.0 coming with a brand new framework to develop applets, I think it's better if I just concentrate on my other projects for the time being.
Last changelog:

12 years ago

[0.93]
* Add a new fire applet (right click).
* Add transparency support (only when in square mode. Thanks again Matí­as!).
* Rework configuration dialogs.

[0.92]
* Double buffering to remove flickers.
* Show the "active memory" usage in the popup menu so it is not always ~100%.

A big thanks to Matí­as Costa. He has done most of the work!

[0.91]
* The applet was sometime trying to divide by zero, causing it to crash. This is fixed now.

Hi,
When I try to compile this nice application, after ./configure when I run make, I get an error (reported below in detail). I have automake-1.9 installed (SuSE 10.0). I also found an workaround to the problem; just go to the src/ directory and then use make and make install.

Feature Request:
1. Configurable rotation speed. Currently its too fast.
2. Modify the ssm.desktop and add an icon and write the application name there
3. Configure option to change the size of the squre. It seems too big to me.

I'm not very good with the automake/configure stuff, but it seems you have some apps missing from your system (aclocal-1.7 and automake-1.7). I'll look into it more closely, but like I said I don't fully understand all of this, so I'm glad you found a workaround :)

Aside from your compile problems, thanks for the suggestions, they are actual good ideas. I might have some time to work on this project next week, so keep an eye open.

I had the same error and installing automake1.7 fixed it.
Under Kubuntu:
sudo apt-get install automake1.7

Hi Your applet is absolutely great !

I was wondering my other applet "style clock" flickers from time to time (it hasnt done so before installing your monitor).

Any ideas?

Very cool.

I, [twitching] didn't realize I can live without hard CPU % numbers. I consider this applet a therapy. :)

If i specify a directory during the configure the makefiles generated seem wrong.

$ ./configure --prefix=/foo/bar

...
finish ok

$ make

make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bob/Desktop/tmp/sysmonitor'
Making all in doc
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/bob/Desktop/tmp/sysmonitor/doc'
make[2]: *** Pas de règle pour fabriquer la cible « all ». Arrêt.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Desktop/tmp/sysmonitor/doc'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Erreur 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bob/Desktop/tmp/sysmonitor'
make: *** [all] Erreur 2


but it compiles fine with just : ./configure

the pb is it doesn't seems to go in /usr which is my kde installation directory.

I'm not good with the whole automake-autoconf-configure suite, so I don't know where to look to resolve your problem. Please try the new version (0.91), maybe you won't have this problem again. If it still doesn't work, I'll look more closely on this issue.

Hi

nice program!!!
It is very useful if you don't have much space left...
... but I would like to change the background color to transparent or a color that fit my needs.

Anyway, Good Work!

Thank you! The fact that this applet simply ignore the panel's background image is a known problem. The thing is, I'm not sure what is the best way to do it, so it might take a while before I make it work.
