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

 voltage reporting?

have been using kima for some time now, but i really miss the voltage reporting features of ksysguard.

any chance you can get kima to display that?

Ignorance is bliss

that's a good idea. voltage values are reported by hwmon too, as far as i know. so the chances are good to include that feature to kima.

cheers, litb

 Two suggestions

 by damjan on: Jul 12 2007

1. You should make the tooltip look nicer, like the new kicker icon mouseover effects.

2. It would be very usefull to show the measured values in the configuration dialog, too. (there's plenty of space).
That way one can more easily decide if the sensor is needed.

2.5 a disable all button would be nice :)

1. we are working on a new tooltip.
2. i'm afraid this is not quite possible now, as disabled sources don't fetch values, to speed up kima. so we can't display any value then.
2.5 good idea. let's see what ken thinks about it.

 No tooltip

This is great but I don't want my kicker filled up with info since I don't have the space.
But the tooltip doesn't show fo rme at all, not even once.

Not sure what's going on.

as pointed out in former discussions, that is an kicker bug. it happens when you dismiss one of those big special tooltips with a mouse-click (i.e clicking on the k-menu button while the special tooltip is rolled out). kicker then forgets to re-enable legacy tooltips again (it disables them while it shows a special-tooltip). that bug was fixed during the kde3.5.7 release cycle. kde3.5.8 will include that fix.

cheers' litb

Great applet.
I only miss counters limits and alarms.
Counter action to execute (i.e sound, shutdown...) when the counter reaches the limit for a period of time would be greater.

I am missed on kima custom text fields. It would be great if I can modify output of kima with my own texts..

Sorry for my very bad english.

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.
