This is a kde 4 plasma applet which displays the signal strength of the
access point your wifi nic is currently connected to. It makes no attempt
to do any configuration itself, but only reports on the state of the

This Software is published under the terms of the GNU GPL V3 and comes
without any warranty. Feel free to change or distribute this software.

The graphic is based on the network-wireless icon from the KDE4 Oxygen
icons. I tried to change it as little as possible but unfortunately plasma
wouldn't render the waveforms correctly so I opted to change them to flat
bands of green.

Short installation instruction:
# wget http://movemearound.org/software/plasma-wifi/plasma-wifi-0.3.tar.gz
# tar -xvzf plasma-wifi-0.3.tar.gz
# cd plasma-wifi-0.3/
# cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/kde4 .
# make
# make install

NOTE: The install prefix is from my Kubuntu system. Please adjust this
value to your needs.

Thanks to Jonathan Thomas for building .deb packages for Ubuntu.

The source for this applet is now under /playground in the KDE svn repository. I'm hoping that this will prompt me to work more collaboratively with the Plasma team. My next goal is to create a data engine for obtaining the data, in order to provide platform independence.


0.5 - updated for the new Plasma API in KDE 4.1
0.4 - applied a patch from Mikael Gerdin to avoid crashes when the wifi module unloads
0.3 - commented out lines in CMakeList.txt which were related to unit test (for now, to allow compilation on a wider variety of machines)
0.2 - added explicit license information

 show essid, put % in middle

 by cookdav on: Sep 6 2008

When it's put into container 'panel',
then the percent-signal-strength is
NOT visible...needs to be centered
over the ball.

Also, it would be nice to show
the 'ESSID' of AP connected to, when
one hovers over it.

 some requests

Could you make sure the applet stays square, and keeps a sane size in a panel? It now sizes to take whatever is left in the panel, resulting in weird shapes and sizes. I've got a vertical, not-full-size, panel at the left-hand-size of my screen with buttons and stuff in it, and this meter is currently twice as high as it should be.
Some more wifi-info, like essid, and ip-address, in a tooltip or so, would be nice.
And an option to start a configuration-tool, like wpa_gui, would make it complete.

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.
