Description:

A plasmoid to show your CPU and memory usage. It is a fork of the default KDE system monitor developed by MJD, which unfortunately does not keep up with the new slick design of KDE4 at the moment.

This version offers a pleasant choice of default colors and a glass effect in front of the bars.

To compile the source, you need cmake, gcc and the development packages of KDE4.

Doesn’t still work with KDE 4.2 here. With the changes mentioned in the comments, compiling and adding works fine, but the bars are still empty. Is there any alternative to this plasmoid?

System Status is a good alternative: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/System+Status?content=74891

Hi.

I tried to build on openSUSE 11.1 but cmake failed with the following error message:

CMake Error at /usr/share/kde4/apps/cmake/modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:53 (MESSAGE):
Could not find REQUIRED package Plasma

I have installed the development packages for KDE4. Does anybody know what's missing on my system?

Regards, Micke.

Remove find_package(Plasma REQUIRED)
and change ${PLASMA_LIBS} to ${KDE4_PLASMA_LIBS}

Just heads up, the latest KDE 4.2 upgrade (kde42.debian.org) breaks things with this applet, I was getting Plasma each time I was trying to start KDE before I removed systemmonitor.

actually, no plasmoid I compiled works after the upgrade.

Nice and simple, I like it :)
I'm just looking at the KNetworkmanager icon in your screenshot, if you manage to get a similar look, it will be awesome ! :-)

Changing(/data_engine/plasma-dataengine-cpu_monitor.desktop and plasma-dataengine-mem_monitor.desktop):

X-Plasma-EngineName=
to
X-KDE-PluginInfo-Name=

did the trick here.

KDE 4.2 (beta-1), Kubuntu Jaunty Jackalope (alpha-1).

This didn't work for me in 4.2. Beta 2 (Debian) I get blank bars.

Anyway, this is one of the best plasmoids, it should be included by default in KDE, I remember that system monitor was available in kicker-extra package.

This is a great app, you get all the info about CPU, Memory, Swap in one look and it occupies as much space as an icon, all the rest of system monitors are bulky and don't provide the info in such useful manner.

Hey,

Just wanted to let you know, changes in trunk require more information in the .desktop files for the data engines. Otherwise, your fork looks really good!
