Description:

Yet another tool from my work :)

This is small process viewer and manager for kicker. It displays your processes in "ps ux"-style and allows to kill (SIGKILL), stop (SIGSTOP) and continue (SIGCONT) any of them.

Looks like a very neat little thing. Any thought of "porting" it to Plasma? :)

Suggestions:

Icon--the frame around it is annoying. Showing statics would be nice but I use the system monitor applet so this should be optional. Might combine these two applets at some point--a single click as no action in the system monitor so it could open your view!

Nice--would be nice to see the niceness of the applications and to be able to renice them as well

Persistence--option to not close the view on loss of focus, maybe a keystroke or checkbox. Now I no longer need top or that OTHER k-process-monitor :-)

In general, renicing is useless unless you are a root (man renice).

Ahh yes, but what about an option to do it as root? Maybe running kdesu?

I need yet another applet for my machine at work - smb4k client for kicker. And I'm working on it now. It will allow much faster access to smb shares, than running smb4k or konqueror (my machine is too slow, so I need to wait 5-7 seconds until smb4k/konq is started).

I upgraded and after the upgrade looked at the rpm that checkinstall created and it scares me as the files listed look like files from other rpms (especially the various /usr/lib64/lib*.so)and I'm worried that if I remove the kprocessviewer rpm or upgrade it my system will be messed up.

Of course I could just be wrong

Hmmm !!! I see you already installed broken KPV package.

Yes, you are right. Do not remove it. It will totally break you system.

fyi - I've been using checkinstall for probably 5 years and have never seen anything like this before

Do NOT use checkinstall. It is totally buggy. Sometimes it copies in binary package useless libraries, object files and even g++ compiler. You can try to rebuild KPV, then use checkinstall again. If it still doesn't work, use rpm native utilities to build a package. For example, I use dpgk-deb in Debian. I hope RPM has smth like it.

took me a few moments to relize that in the "add applet" window the applet wasn't titled "kpv" - could you maybe change this?

Suggestions:
- add option to see all apps
- ability to renice

thanks

I think I'll change project name to kprocessviewer, because we already have KPV project - KPackViewer.

I like very much the app! I hoped something like this existed for a long time!

A wish: Making the icon to show live statistics of the computer could be an interesting twist, like the "System Monitor" applet (that shows the CPU, memory and swap usage in realtime in the icon).

Thanks!

Nice app.
Could you change the background of the button to transparent, because this white background looks strange on a transparent kicker.
