Description:

this is my first karamba theme. it's called t-bar and provides the user with some information about cpu, net ...
there are also some buttons that bring up the kde-menu, the logout-dialog or that start your (favourite) programs.
you are able to display a pager and/or 2 extratabs with more information.

thanks to everyone who helped me, to everaldo for his nice crystal icons, to other karamba themecreators i took some ideas for my own scripts from

---------------------------
there are some questions i want to ask you to make this theme perfect :-).

- what sensors do you want to see in the tabs (more sensors)

Known bugs:
-when adding or deleting icons or when changing the spacing, the clickareas don't move (made it with attachClickArea, but it won't move correctly). you may have to reload the bar to be able to use your icons.

ToDo:
- make configuration easier
- add new configuration: "edit icon" to edit the imagepath and/or command of an existing icon
- add more sensorstuff in the tabs
- write a little documentation
- fix bugs :-)

Please report bugs, if you find some!

You asked what more sensors are wanted. I find a definite good idea would be hard disk sensors. At least the "/" is available on every Linux machine ;) Maybe it is even possible to read out the /etc/fstab and let the user check the drives to monitor?

Another great idea - since I like the look of t-bar very much - would be a tab for xmms, even though there are already some karamba themes available.

Btw: if the "extra tabs" could be embedded into the bar, e.g. one button to open the list of extra tabs in the style of the kmenu... at least I would enjoy it :-)

All the best for you and your great project meanwhile,
Izzy.

My copy has just started loading near the bottom. I cannot move it and the 'Toggle Locked Position' is grayed out. Forcing the gereral section to read:

'KARAMBA X=0 Y=0 W=1024 H=35 interval=500 locked=false ontop=true topbar=true'

does not help.

Any ideas?

just create a bash script in ~/.kde/AutoStart/ and chmod it to 775
the bash script can be of anyname

the bash script will look something like that:

#/bin/sh
superkaramba /path/to/lalala.theme
superkaramba /path/to/blah.theme
superkaramba /path/to/my.theme

Nice job! Yes 1024 would be most appreciated. Now I can slide the KDE bar off the screen and forget about it.

Easiest answer I can give is to look at my theme called opbar. Some of the things you are asking about are there in the theme file. BTW .... very clean graphics... like your look.

Hello there looks interesting so far.
