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

Hey, I really like your applet! It's wonderful to use. I'd just have a question.. Maybe you could upgrade the sample rate so it's maximum is about 5 mins?

The applet has slowed down my taskbar a bit.. Because it's a server with no latency. Could you do that? I think it would help me allot.

5 minutes may be allot, 2 minutes is great also..

To be honest, I don't know for sure if the no-latency is the cause of my taskbar begin slow.. but I think it is, since it is slow after I added the applet.

Many thanks :)

Hello Kevin,
you can modify the src/prefs.ui file with the designer or edit line 428 manually to adjust the sample rate max value - then recompile. Which sensors are enabled when running the applet and which are available at all on your machine? I'm interested to solve performance problems if there are any. I didn't encounter any performance problems even on slow (600MHz) machines. The applets cpu consupmption wasn't noticeable. I have no computer that runs lmsensors, so its pretty untested :). If you have an idea or just want to discuss this issue you can contact me via Jabber ken@elliptique.net.

 Problem

VERY GOOD APPLET.

only problem is that, on my machine, i don't get the yellow-popup thingy, and it only displays CPU Freq + Temp. - but not stylized, just as plain text....

any idea as to why?

The tooltip (yello thing) displays all found sensors and its corresponding values. The selected temp and freq source is displayed in an italic font style. You can change them via the context menu or the preferences. Could you provide a screenshot of the applet on your machine with the activated tooltip? knsapshot will do the trick. That might help to identify the problem. Maybe there are just one thermal and one frequency source on your system.

 CPUFREQ?

Nice applet. This would be better if you add support for cpufreq like the gnome-cpufreq applet wherein you can left-click on the applet and adjust the speed of the processor.

 no temp shown

 
 by mobtek on: May 13 2006
 
Score 50%

I have acpi compiled as modules and I have done the modprobe thermal and I show

root@neopolis:cpuinfo$ lsmod | grep ther
thermal 10632 0
processor 14764 1 thermal

Why would thermal be showing 0 instead of 1? If I use another app like the CLI mbmon which reads ASUS bach stuff to get the info I get my current cpu temp, any ideas why thermal isn't loading properly? So of course the temp Thermal Sources section of the applet is greyed out. Is there another option to pass to this module?

Hm, I have no idea - sorry. Could you provide the output of a 'cat /proc/acpi/*/*/*temp*'?

It seems that the acpi thermal module isn't able to detect any temperature sensors on your machine. I guess the directory /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ is empty.

 error loading applet

I get an error when I try to add this to the kicker stating:

"The CPU Info Applet could not be loaded. Please check the installation."

I have an intel core duo t2300 processor, maybe this is the problem? Any suggestions?

I never saw such a message. Did you use a certain binary package or did you compile from the source?

I think it was a suse 10 package. I'm compiling from source now and I get the following error:

configure.in:39: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE
If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.in:44: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONFIG_HEADER

Sorry for my late replies. :)

Hello,

same error for me with the suse package under suse 10.1 (was working fine with suse 10.0).

I've found another solution to show the CPU temp on the taskbar by adding the applet "System Monitor". By default this applet does'nt show the CPU temp but if you open the application too, you can easily drag and drop the CPU temp sensor to the applet.

Raoul made a SuSE 10.1 rpm which should work: http://kde-apps.org/content/download.php?content=33257&id=7

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.
