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


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 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

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

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

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

build the sources

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

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


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

- 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)

- the 0.7.3 tag was inconsistent to the released tar.gz so we decided to release
- 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

looks like you haven't load the necessary kernel module. from your signature, i see that you use opensuse 10.2.

assuming your motherboard is supported.
install sensors package from yast, then run /usr/sbin/sensors-detect. follow the on-screen instructions (especially the one that require you to paste some text to /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/init.d/boot.local). restart KDE.

The 0.6.2 version makes my kicker crash on login, in gentoo amd64.
But i only get the crash dialog, and (perhaps another) panel is already started.... :-S

I've got the exact same error on ubuntu/feisty/x86 with kde 3.5.5 and now on 3.5.6

I'm using powernowd, and have added kima to the standard kicker panel.

Tried deleting the configurationfile aswell, but no change.

Could you please look into this ?

thanks for reporting the bug. We figured out that KGlobal::locale()->measureSystem() isn't thread safe and changed Kimas code. I would really like to thank Johannes and Peter who helped me debugging this all night long. Kima 0.6.3 is now on its way.

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.
