Description:

This applet monitors various temperature, frequency and fan sources in your kicker panel.
Make sure you have enabled a supported kernel module.

Homepage:
http://kima.sourceforge.net

Features:
supported thermal sources:
- the Linux ACPI Thermal Zone driver. The corresponding kernel module is called thermal.
- the thermal sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the IBM Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS) driver. The corresponding kernel module is called hdaps.
- the Omnibook Configuration Tools & Patches. The corresponding kernel module is called omnibook.
- the iBook G4 CPU and GPU thermal zones. It may work on other Apple machines as well (please let me know).
- the thermal sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the CPU thermal sensor of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.
- the GPU thermal sensors of nvidia-settings (provided by the nVidia GPU card driver tools)
- the termal sensors provided by hddtemp daemon (make sure hddtemp runs on 127.0.0.1 port 7634 before kima starts)

supported frequency sources:
- the Linux kernel /proc/cpuinfo interface
- the Linux kernel cpufreq subsystem

supported fan sources:
- the fan sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the fan sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the fan sources of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.

misc sources:
- CPU usage source
- uptime source that displays the current system uptime
- battery source that displays the current state of charge of your batteries

misc:
- cpufreqd control module to switch cpufreqd profiles via cpufreqd remote interface

installation:
grab a appropriate package for your distribution or the sources below.

using the source:
run configure
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)

build the sources
make

install the applet (with appropriate rights)
su -c 'make install'

finally add the applet to your KDE panel (RMB on kicker).




Changelog:

Kima 0.7.4:
- CPU usage source added
- russian translation added

Kima 0.7.3.2:
- thread wakeups minimized which should lead to a better powertop result
- crash fix: prevent i18n calls from within threads (it seems i18n isn't thread safe)

Kima 0.7.3.1:
- the 0.7.3 tag was inconsistent to the released tar.gz so we decided to release 0.7.3.1
- improvements regarding the dbus error handling
- XNVCtrl support fixed
- small autoconf/automake script improvements

Kima 0.7.3:
- more robust battery source in case of libhal/dbus errors
- since Kima 0.7.2 was already tagged we jump to 0.7.3 the changeog lists the never released 0.7.2 though

Kima 0.7.2:
- battery source added that displays the current state of charge of your batteries through libhal
- nvidia thermal source: optional configure switch added to query libXNVCtrl.a instead of nvidia-settings
- updated admin directory that supports automake 1.10
- swedish, turkish and indonesian translation added (thanks to Oskar Ellström, Uğur Çetin and Donnie S Bhayangkara)
- translation fixes
- processes started by kicker does not exit correctly because of kimas' use of QProcess. KProcess fixes the problem

Kima 0.7.1:
- uptime source added
- initial source scanning parallelized
- spanish translation added
- hungary translation added
- german translation fixes
- hddtemp source bugfix, in case reading from network failed
- preferences bugfix, an enabled source was not displayed on kicker
- cursor fixed if one drags a source and clicks right mouse button
- encoding of the degree sign is now UTF8

Kima 0.7:
- support for moving the sources via drag and drop added
- support for hddtemp daemon added (http://www.guzu.net/linux/hddtemp.php)
- german translation added
- repainting of the sources improved

 hddtemp & nvidia

Very good program!
I would need 2 more functions:
- hddtemp support
- nvidia gpu core temp support
The first one is a must, i think!

 Fan panel

Hi

I just installed Mika onto my Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with Suse 10.2 installed. I installed the i8kUtils packages but can't see the fan panel within Mika. Do I have to install anything else to get it to work/show?

Thanks

Hello Stephane,
Kima needs the i8k kernel module loaded before it starts. Otherwise the source can't be detected. Please modprobe the i8k module. Then a 'cat /proc/i8k' should give you some values. If so, you could start the applet via: appletproxy `kde-config --prefix`/share/apps/kicker/applets/kima.desktop

Hi, thanks for your response.

I do have the i8k kernel drivers installed

Here is he output of "cat /proc/i8k"
1.0 A14 1V99Z0J 45 0 0 0 0 -1 2

I installed the i8kutils packages, but it is still does not work.

Hello,
the output looks not too bad. I took a closer look to your /proc/i8k value which says your machine runs Bios A14. Which model do you have? Knowing that one could check whether the fan speed is supported on your notebook (see http://people.debian.org/~dz/i8k/00-README). The fan status shows valid values but the fan seems not to be rotating (which should be reported as 0 rpm). However Kima should at least provide a Source named "CPU". The provider of the source is shown in the preferences dialog that should state: "This source is provided by i8k kernel module.".

My laptop is Dell Inspiron 8600. I have for the last 4 years.

I will check if I can update the BIOS.
Thanks

From what I can see here I have no indication why it shouldn't work. If the kernel module is loaded before Kima starts and you have the i8k sources in the preferences dialog enabled it should display your CPU temperature and Fan speed.

What happens if you perform the following command:
cat /proc/i8k && appletproxy `kde-config --prefix`/share/apps/kicker/applets/kima.desktop
It should first read your i8k values (just to ensure the module is loaded) and then a small window should pop up containing the Kima applet showing all available sources.

I used Fedora Code 6 and GKrellM for a year without any problems with the fans and was able to control the fans temperatures and speed.

I installed Suse 10.2 to get the wireless card working. I can't find GKrellM for Suse 10.2, so that is why I tried Kima.

Also the applet show the THM value in Fahrenheit instead of Celsius. Any way I can change that. Also the only panels I see is cpufreq0, proc and THM.

You can switch to metric system per kcontrol: "Regional & Accessibility"->"Country/Region & Language"->"Other"->"Measure system"->"Metric" and restart the applet.

 Other sensors?

 
 by Michaelaustin on: Jan 18 2007

Do you plan on intigrating any other sensors into Kima? At present it only shows temperatures, fan speed and cpuu frequency, do you plan on including a battery monitor etc? OOr does a battery monitor already exist in Kima?

Kima is not necessarily limited to temperatures, frequency and fan speed. As the changelog suggests Kima adds more and more sensors that hopefully includes battery sensors too in the future. The next release brings a new NVidia source and some internal structural changes.

 settings

Hi there,

on my machine, kima does not save its settings... whenever i remove and reload the applet it loads the defaults which are far too big for my panel...

I already tried the svn version also, but its the same behavior...

Dont know whats causing this (maybe not implemented yet?) ...

Beside this, kima is the best solution i have seen so far (works also great on dual core), so keep up the great work :)

I noticed that too and its because Kima is a non-unique applet currently (you could add multiple instances of Kima to your kicker). I'll change Kima to a unique applet so that the preferences are stored without the instance ID. See http://api.kde.org/3.5-api/kdelibs-apidocs/kdeui/html/classKPanelApplet.html#a4 for details. The next release should solve your issue.

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
