Description:

KTemperature is an application to monitor the system temperature. I was motivated to develop this utility because I could not find a simple system tray resident application for monitoring the system temperature using the ACPI interface.

The application obtains the system temperature from the file /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature .

I have been using Linux and Open Source for quite sometime and this is my first contribution. I hope this will lead to
many more contributions from me.

SuSE 9.2 rpm for the i686 platform is available for download.
The available rpm also works for SuSE 9.3.
The rpm available for download can be installed on SuSE 10.0 as well.




Changelog:

Version 1.1
Added check for the presence of /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature file. If the file is not present the temperature will be displayed as NA.

Version 1.2
Corrected typo.
Visual representation of the "hotness" of the system.
The system maximum temperature can be provided as an input. The system tray icon will change redness depending on the ratio of provided maximum temperature to the current temperature.

Version 1.3
Configurable temperature monitoring interface, can be anything as long as the temperature can be obtained by doing a read operation on the file.
Stored configuration. The configuration is stored in $HOME/.ktemperatue and read on startup.
Increased sensitivity of redness to temperature changes.

Version 1.4
Auto adjusting text font. The color of the text adjusts to a compliment of the background color, This ensures that the text is clearly visible irrespective of the redness of the systray icon.
More prominent text. The text is bold faced and the font of the text is bigger.

Version 1.5
Changes of parameters (polling interval and max, temperature) take instantaneous effect without having to restart the application.
Boundary values cases of redness, the calculation of redness difference between the background and the foreground has been modified to ensure a minimum difference.
Text alignment, the temperature text will be aligned in the middle both vertically and horizontally.

Version 1.6
Auto loading of the neccessary ACPI thermal module and its dependencies if, required. The root password is checked prior to loading the modules.
Detection of two variants of the thermal interface, namely
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM and
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM

Version 1.7
The ACPI thermal interface was being detected by searching the /proc/modules file. However, that approach will lead to an irritating request for root password in cases where the module in compiled into the kernel. The thermal interface detection has been modified to take care of the above case.

Version 1.8
Added Pause, Restart and Update options in the right click menu for more control of polling.
Cleaned the auto detection of ACPI thermal interface. The first file in the thermal_zone directory(other than .. and .)is taken as the temperature file.
Fixed the width of the main window to be always greater than the width of widest child window.

Version 1.9
Changed the implementation of 'redness' from RGB space to HSV space for greater sensitivity.
The background color changes from green at minimum temperature to red at maximum temperature.
The text is always constant and will have a clear contrast all temperatures.
Replace memcpy with strcpy in monitor interface selection.
Interface(s) selected in the drop down list will be honoured when the Set button is clicked after the selection.
Used grid layout for the main widget.

Version 1.9-1
Created archive to include version information.
Added keyboard shortcuts to right click menu options.
Added caption to root password dialog.

I would like to acknowledge the suggestions that I have received. The changes have been made taking into account these suggestions.

This is a good modern program. Ksensors hasnt been updated since last year and I had trouble finding libsensors.so.1.

So this program is a good replacement.

This application is not intended to be a replacement for KSensors which, is a more comprehensive monitoring application . For some reason lm_sensors was not reporting anything useful on my laptop. Hence, I decided to develop this to use whatever is working.

Hi!

I have a question concerning the temperature in the proc. It is not updated for me. It stays constant at one temperature up to the moment, when I restart my computer. Do u have any idea why???

If I understand correctly, the value in the /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature is not changing and remains constant.
I think that it is most surely an issue with the ACPI .
Also, only the recent PCs/Laptops tend to have ACPI support, the older ones use APM.
I hope this information is useful.

I am also getting the PNG error. However, when I run the application it is not crashing.
Do you have the temperature interface at
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature ?
I don't think there is a check for the status of the file open in the current version.

I also get this errors,
I think the problem is, that the .png files in the src directory arn't real png files.
I can't opem them with kuickshow and file say :
hi16-app-ktemperature.png: data
hi32-app-ktemperature.png: data

Great work. I tried it, and it works well.
One little upgrade could be, if you make it start a resident child process, so when i close konsole, it wont stop the program running. (Especially, because it it an application that is for the task bar.)

Anyway, I like it very much, because ksensors is much depreceted, and more complicated to install.

Congrats!

If you do a make install as root, it shows up in the Utilities submenu of the KDE menu. If you do not want to do a make install as root, you can try nohup ktemperature & . This way it will stay resident even if you close the console.

you are right, i knew the option. unix style process handling rules. But it still would be nice, if you implement in a later version, if its not a big thing. Otherwise dont worry about it.

Your app is cool. I was not aware that my AMD CPU get so hot while converting movies... its near 70 Celsius degree. :)

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.
