Description:

Impulse is a bit of eye-candy for your desktop. It is a widget that displays a graphical spectrum analyzer on your gnome desktop. It is written in c and python and uses GTK and cairo graphics to generate the animation. the impulse library creates a pulse audio connection context that reads the output stream from pulseaudio in a thread natively which can then be read from python. You can specify impulse to either output the raw stream or output the fft of the raw stream.


Requires:
screenlets 1.2
libfftw3-3
libpulse0


Install:
1) Download and extract Impulse.tar.bz2
2) mv Impulse ~/.screenlets/
then open up the screenlets manager and start Impulse or open screenlets manager and click Install, navigate to the Impulse.tar.bz2 archive and click ok.

The source is provided on launchpad.net. Go to https://launchpad.net/impulse.bzr . This is also where the download packages are hosted. The download links as well as a link on Impulse's homepage link to the launchpad page.

Hi.

This screenlet is exactly what i need !

But i would prefer an "upside down" version of the "default" theme, because i would want to use it on top of my desktop.

Coud someone help me ?

nice work :)
works perfect

i just want to say one suggestion:
if you can, add potentiometer to adjust speed of those lines (time to line from some position go down to the bottom)

eg. bass kicks it, and line goes like this:
-
-
-- --
-------
and from once is silence and lines go like this:


-------
but i think it should go slower to the bottom:

-
-- --
-------
>>>eg. 300ms<<<


--
-------
>>>eg. 300ms<<<

I hope that i explained good, english isn't my native language :)

dang no one uses skype or esound?? If I can't use it with esound is there a possibility of getting its version in near future?

Hi guys,
I've removed pulseaudio and using esound as otherwise skype won't work, I'm not sure if they have fixed pulseaudio since Ubuntu9.04 is launched. Can anyone confirm and let me know if there is a way to use this screenlet with esound or using pulseaudio with skype.
Anyway the screenlet looks awesome I would like to try it soon
Thanks

At first it didn't work, now it uses 70% of my CPU (on a brand new computer). I'm tempted to keep it running because it looks so nice, although that's somewhat impractical. Its a great screenlet, I hope the bugs are ironed out soon.

This is a great concept of desktop utilization. All that needs to be done is GPU rendering. But while it uses 90% of my CPU it's a huge distraction as I can't do anything else while it's running.
