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

 Exclude nice CPU?

 
 by freefred on: Aug 23 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi,
this is a great app, i love it.
Now, with the last version, i love more
'cos you added the "CPU usage source".
Well, the problem is that I like to search for E.T., and some disease remedy. I use BOINC:-)
So my CPU usage is always at 100%.
I'm not a programmer, so I ask: it would be possible exclude nice CPU time?
As Gkrellm does, I mean.
Anyway, fantastic work.
Thanks.


don't be agnostic, be something.

Hello freefred,

the current development version has got two new checkboxes to exclude system and nice load. Checkout the development version from svn at http://kima.sourceforge.net/#development

 After suspend

After I resume from suspend-to-ram, kima does not update until I add and remove the applet.

Is there a way to force refresh it or fix this problem?

we already looked into that problem, and it looks like it is a problem in the linux-kernel/libpthread/Qt . we really searched hard, but found no single bug regarding this in kima.
sorry about this.

cheers, litb

Hello,
as litb said, we haven't found the reason yet, but it seems to be outside of Kimas source code. Some threads are not notified anymore so they don't return to running state. Thus some of the sources are not updated.
Which kernel are you using? You may be able to avoid that problem by disabling the "Dynamic Ticks" feature or something else timing related in your kernel (see http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/3/12/72).

Ken

 QT4/QT3Support?

Hi,

I read in a previous comment that it was possible to make this program compile with the QT3Support feature of QT4. What are the needed steps to make that work properly?

Thanks.

Hello,
I didn't try it yet. I Guess the code needs little tweaking until it compiles against the Qt3Support lib. Just give it a try and let us know. : )

 HDD temperature

 
 by szotsaki on: Oct 25 2007
 
Score 50%

Hi!

I have SATA laptop drives, only my DVD drive is ATA.
hddtemp says my /dev/sda temp, but Kima watch only /dev/hda (which is the DVD writer) and /dev/hdb (which does not exist -- and write ??? instead the temperature).

How can I set Kima to watch /dev/sda?

And beside hddtemp, hdparm can monitor Hitachi drives' temperature with the -H flag. Thus I think we doesn't need to install the hddtemp daemon.

Hello szotsaki,
just start hddtemp in daemon mode with appropriate parameters. i.e. hddtemp -d /dev/sda
Depending on your distri there might be a config file at /etc/default/hddtemp.

 Fan percentage

Great applet!
On my HP nc8430 I have 5 thermal zone sources; among of them, there's the main fan speed percentage one. Is it possible to have the "%" instead of "°C", representing this parameter unit?

Bye!

Hello piricoco,
unfortunately the user can't change the suffix yet. So there is no way to do that except from changing the source. But let me understand your case first. Are you saying that a kernel module posts a fan speed value as thermal source? Which thermal source provides the fan value? For example the omnibook kernel module or the linux ACPI thermal zone driver. The heading line of the preferences dialog of that source gives a hint. Could you post the appropriate /proc values too? For example /proc/omnibook/temperature or /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/*/temperature.
Regards
Ken

Hi Ken!
My HP nc8430 supports 5 thermal zones; they are, in order:

0: DTS
1: Thermal Sensor
2: Graphics Controller
3: Battery
4: Current Fan speed (%)

I found them on HP business support forum http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1052925&prodSeriesId=1839150&admit=-682735245+1194298006406+28353475&prodTypeId=321957

In particular, the #4 grows its value while fan noise increases, so I think that's true.

My current cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/*/temperature
is:
temperature: 65 C
temperature: 54 C
temperature: 51 C
temperature: 16 C
temperature: 70 C

Bye!

Hello piricoco,
thanks for digging into this. I'm afraid I can't help in this case. I think the right place to fix that would be the Kernel (module). Fan values are usually reported to /proc/acpi/fan/. You might want to contact the Kernel people and ask why fan speed is reported as temperature value. It sounds really strange. But I think it's outside kimas scope.
Regards
Ken

piricoco,
one problem is that there is no easy way for Kima to detect if a thermal sensor doesn't report a temperature value but a fan speed. Thats a really strange behaviour isn't it? :)

Ken, thanks for your interest and, of course, for this REALLY NICE applet! With it and KDE power manager I have the Linux-equivalent to rmclock under windows, but with more infos (althought under windows my cpu have some more frequencies to scale)

I understood that it's not a kima bug, but a kernel one. Do you think I should contact kernel team to investigate this strange behaviour? In kernel.org I found only webmaster and ftp addresses...

Bye!

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
