It's really sad, your software was extremly important for me and for most kde users on post-sovetic territory because of simple and easy connection with statistic, keeping in mind very high prices of internet traffic.

I also beg for a version for kde-4, I use knemo all the time, I like the custom menu feature and the hints.

The system network monitor that comes with kde-4.2 is unusable, even the monitored interface name is not shown not speaking about custom menus or interface status.

To be honest, since one year I am using Gnome, so the chances for a KDE4 port - at least from me - are very small. ;-)

It's good to see that even after that long time there are still people that like using KNemo - on the other side this project was done by myself because I had the need for a small and flexible network monitor. But that was back in 2004. Even if I would still use KDE the network monitors coming with most distributions would be enough for my needs. I can connect and disconnect several connections, I have a visual feedback and status for every connection, that's all I want.

So sorry to disappoint you... but hey, there is hope: http://vizzzion.org/?blogentry=839

Seems very promising to me.

You ken use knemo3 under kde4.
install kdebase3 and knemo, open kcontrol from the commandline and configure knemo as discribed in the manual of knemo.
Then create a script containing the following commmand:

dcop kded kded loadModule knemod

and ensure that the script starts with kde4.

Hi,

thanks for your hints! I added them to the top of the page as many people seem to miss KNemo under KDE4.

How do I start KNemo in KDE 4?

Report

9 years ago

Although I did check the option to "use Knemo to monitor my interfaces" in the Control Center Knemo won't start.
By looking at the Startup Services in Control Center I can see that Knemo isn't running and when I try to manually start it I get an unable to start service.
I'm using KDE 3.5.9 on a less know distro called Frugalware. I have no idea why this happens.
I would have liked to see some error messages so I could at least try and figure what's going on but don't know where to look for logs or something.
Any help with this would be appreciated.

I've only just installed KNemo, so forgive me for speaking from a position of some ignorance (and if this has already been covered). I presume that the statistics for "This month" will reset on the 1st of each month at midnight, so my question is, how easy is it to change this? My Internet billing resets on the 15th of each month, so it would be incredibly useful if KNemo did too. Is this a simple hardcoded value in the source somewhere that I can change easily enough? Thanks, cheers.

Unfortunately its no hard coded value. It simply compares the current month against the month reported by QDate::currentDate(). And if Qt thinks there is a new month KNemo also starts a new month.

OK, cool. Could you tell me which file and function that is in? Thanks.

Report

Its in interfacestatistics.cpp in function updateCurrentMonth(). This function creates a new month whenever it can't find the current month in the statistics.

Maybe you could use a condition like 'only if we have a new month and the current day is equal or greater 15 create a new month'. But this could cause some unexpected behavior elsewhere.

Hi

Nice app!

But in 0.4.8/debian testing I'm seeing wrong count for output traffic on my ppp0 interface. ppp0 is a VPN connection.

It shows I'm transferred out 265 Mb, but actually this is 2,65 mb

Sorry if its already reported

Hi,

there is no further development of KNemo so there won't be any bug fix releases.

What you could try to change in the configuration is the used backend. This could solve your problem.

Hi,

good prog.
I think in the statistics is missing uptime.

Well, there is a version at http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/plasma/ (applets/network and engines/network) but I am not really happy with its current state so I am not sure if I should release it here...

Can you please remember to modify the icon color based on traffic?
This would be great to stop using kbandwidth...
Thanks!

Hi,

are you talking about KNemo - please remember that I won't port it to KDE4 - or are you talking about my attempt to create a similar plasmoid?

Please find the appropriate steps for downloading and compiling single applications from extragear on http://techbase.kde.org.

For those running kde4 who want something that works basically like knemo did check out http://knetstats.sourceforge.net/

The fedora src rpm compiles under opensuse 11 with no changes.

Although I encourage you to compile the src rpm yourself for safety a precompiled opensuse 11 x86_64 rpm is at http://www.2shared.com/file/3561291/d870797d/knetstats-161-41x86_64.html
