KDE Improvement

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.


* 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.

 RPM build for Suse 9

I have compiled a RPM for Suses 9.2.
Work fine.

I just observe the choice of blue color for led is not a good choice..I prefer a green color

The RPM can be found at :

regarding the Green colour, i actually changed the XPMs to use light green screens instead, it isn't too difficult if you can make your way around in the gimp, and of course update the .xpm files to use the correct type:


const char * networkX_xpm[] = {

takes about 5 mins.

 What if...

You just integrate this with Knetworkconf, and it became a default KDE application... It would be very, very nice for the newbies...

I'm thinking in looking the source code. What do you use in development? KDevelop?

It reminds me of KNemo...
But KNetworkLED has a very cool feature: adjust of query time... Interesting, huh?

 How do I start it?

It installed ok but how do I run it? There's nothing in kmenu and typing knetworkled in a terminal returns command not found.

If you still don't have your answer:

That is where it installed on Suse 10.1 Just click the executable file, then you right click the icons to configure it; or them, depending on how many connections you want to monitor.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
