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.

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.


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

* 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!

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

 Compile Error

 by nileshbansal on: Dec 19 2005
Score 50%

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

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.
