Description:

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
connection.

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.
