KNetworkLED

Depends on  KDE 3.1.x

Submitted:  Jun 30 2004

Description:

KNetworkLED a little app I threw together basically cause I wanted it. Being a guy who just left the Windows world a few years ago, I came to rely on the little network activity LED display in the systemtray to let me know if something was just taking a long time to transmit, or if the connection was just hung.

Now, I know there's a lot of these little apps all over the place, but there wasn't one for kde's system tray that I could find. I'm a big fan of KDE's consistent look and its integration, so I decided I might as well make something I could use and learn the KDE/QT framework while I was at it.




Changelog:

* Version 0.5.1 - June 6th, 2004
o Poll Timer was not updating on the fly when user changed it.

* Version 0.5 - April 1st, 2004
o Needed to include stdlib.h for functions atol() and atoi() [thanks mrherver@tiscali.it].
o Poll Timer was never set to the user's poll time (was still hardcoded to 300ms).

* Version 0.4 - March 19th, 2004
o fixed an error in the automake setup.

* Version 0.3 - March 9th, 2004
o Code cleanup and commenting.
o A few cosmetic changes for the config and status windows.
o Started tracking versions.

* Version 0.2 - March 1st, 2004
o Changed monitoring from bytes transferred to packets. High byte counts were hitting the long int limit.
o Added a configuration window where user can choose which device to monitor and polling rate.
o Added KDE config file support to save user's choices.

* Version 0.1 - February 25th, 2004
o Initial release.
o Monitors hardcoded device eth0
o Fixed bug where it wasn't closing the /proc/net/dev file and would cause a "to many open files" error after a while.
o Added a status window.

 Feature request

 
 by phil on: Jul 1 2004
 
Score 50%

I like it and really appreciate it. It's good work and very useful. But the contrast between the inactive black and the active blue is not too good. I know that Windows uses green and I don't want to copy Windows, but I think a light green would be much better.
What do you think about a further configuration dialog to let the user decide whether to use blue or green or whatever?
(Unfortunately just changing the .xpm files doesn't work because gimp destroyes the header information.)


Greetings

The direction I would like to take it in would be to use png images and store them in KDE's icon directories. That way anyone could change them and they could also have ones made for different icon styles like crystalsvg(which the defaults are in), kdeclassic, ikons, etc.

As it stands now, and as you've apparently figured out, I'm using xpm that I'm including into the source. Pretty embarrasing since I'm only doing that because I didn't understand KDE's iconLoader thingy at first glance, so I just kludged it in real quick to get a working version.

Anyway, I've posted the original 64x64 png's of the original icons on my website (on the knetworkled page). You could gimp 'em up, save them as 22x22 xpm's and name them correctly, then slap em in the directory and recompile.

Changing to .png-files seems to be a good idea. Unfortunately I can't help you with that.
But please kept maintaining this project.

(its t small applet with purple and green text)

Maybe you can put this mode in you app...

 many errors [make]

The gadget looked nice, but I cannot get it working.

Following the (general) installinstructions, i did (as root):
./configure
that was ok.

then make:

Here is some output:

Good - your configure finished. Start make now

Did I download a bad version or am I missing something completely?

To tell you the truth, I don't know why KDevelop put that docbook crap in there, I certainly didn't ask for it, don't use it or need it, and I definately have no idea how to debug it.

With that said, you should be able to just do a ./configure, then cd into the "src" directory and type "make" to just compile the executable with out all that fluff that kdevelop put in there.

I'll try to figure out why the docbook crap failed (either that or rip it out of the install). From your error it looks like your missing a dtd file that is used as an docbook xml descriptor (kdex.dtd). I have that file in:

/usr/kde/3.2/share/apps/ksgmltools2/customization/dtd/kdex.dtd

Thanks for your response.

I tried it, and now it compiled with succes.
It created a executable in /usr/local/kde/bin/

But when I run it I get this:

DCOPServer up and running.

I saw a new icon with a red cross through it in my panel untill I ctrl-c'ed it.

I am one step futher now.
What am I doing wrong now?

Thanks for your time.

Well, first off, there are no install rules for the make file, so once you're finished "making", the executable will be in the "src" directory (the filename will be "knetworkled").

If you are running this executable and not seeing the app, make sure you have the system tray added to your panel (right click an empty spot on the panel, then Add->Applet->System Tray).

OK, the problem solved, I didn't know that the binary goes to src dir.
Thanx, it works great, and thanx for the help!

 bugs

 
 by Borszczuk on: Dec 12 2004

Dunno where to report bugs, so I try here:

once configured knetworkled should stay with given settings. Currently, however if it detects lack of interface it was configured to monitor it switches to "Configure me" state which sucks as heel. I personally use wlan0 but I configure it after I log in. So I start my KDE session and when it's loaded I setup my network. Other tools I use to monitor wlan0 interface simply stay tuned waiting the interface to appear. You treat it as a misconfiguration, which is incorrect.

knetworkled shall create list of availabe interfaces on demand, NOT on startup as it recently does. This requires user to ALT-F4 to quit the app whenever s/he wants to use iface that appeared after the app started.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
