JEY!style Icons

Full Icon Themes by jackric 30 comments

Actually they do install if you copy the folder in /usr/share/icons

But the folder/file structure is different and all folder icons don't load up. So I copied all JEY icon folders in the oxygen folder, overwriting those of oxygen and leaving those that are not part of JEY. It works, but not for all folder icons, I might need to manually check them and copy from JEY.

Would be nice to re-arrange this. I am NOT using any KDE/distro without JEY Black icons. So currently am stuck in openSUSE 11.2. - Jan 08 2012

2 years after you said to stay tuned loll, it seems those KDE4 sets cannot install in 4.7.x, says the .theme file is not valid. This is the best set in the world, I need it! How can I fix this?

tnx :) - Jan 07 2012

True! It was "clock" I needed to search for, doh!! loll Not "date" or "time".

It works, I have changed from 240% to 300% and it's now indented to the right, great I can tweak other things if I want, now. :)

Easy to test, just log off session and you'll see the instant change!

This theme is so freakin' beautiful!!

tnx - Mar 03 2010

This theme is really great!

On mine it doesn't show like on your preview. The Date at the bottom left is partly out of the main box. By 5-6 characters too many on the left, so the day (Mon, Sat, etc.) is always outside and some characters as well.

I tried editing the xml config file and enlarging the width of the main box but it didn't change anything. Unless I need to send a command so that it keeps it in memory, I don't know.

So can the padding or X,Y of the Date section be changed? If yes how?

Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Tnx for that. You are right with last paragraph, I call multiple sensors at the same time every second, so it takes from 3% to 12% (some are each 2 or 5 secs) of each of my cores, they would run under load all the time with the alarms. I'm surprised how great gkrellm is built, as my cpu load is from 0% to 3% on each core every few seconds.

I don't know if yasp is able to call the sensor once and assign the results to every value key, but mine doesn't do it. I probably call the same sensor 30 times+ every second.

As said I'll try to find someone on the alarms, more chances I won't be able to, but I'll try. Or I'll see if I can work without these, as your monitor is ao great.

tnx :) - Feb 04 2010
Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Good. :) So it's technically possible. Since your monitor deserves to expand, I will try to find someone with the knowledge and time to look into the alarms.

tnx :) - Feb 04 2010

Is there a technical reason why alarms cannot be incorporated within the scripts? - Feb 04 2010
Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Ok great, I have modified considerably the original script to fit what I need, a few things remaining now, the most complex, so I will start with one I absolutely need.

Sure I could go on IRC, but I am at work now. :) Yes I am working on the script at work. lolll It's interesting. I also think other people would like to know the answer as well.

I am trying to understand how I can set alarm limits on sensors. There is no value key for alarm, so do I need to write something with math?

Low or high or low and high limits (only 2 alarms to start with) on:

-CPU load;
-Core/CPU/GPU/HDD/System temps;
-CPU/System Fans RPMs;
-HDD free space per partition.

I am totally lost on that one. :) But I know if it works for one, it will for the others.

I think any good monitor should have alarms, cuz its purpose is to monitor sensors. :) I hope it's possible with your scripts?

tnx :) - Feb 04 2010
Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Interesting trick indeed. I see yasp has been created to maximize processing efficiency, which is sometimes lacking in different applications/scripts, so that's another thumbs up.

I'll then have to continue using sed and learn how to tweak it for my sensor output (I get blank temps with the default script, cuz I don't have the same sensors you do).

Yes I want to have 4 core temps, along with 4 core loads and 4 core plotters (maybe I could put 4 lines into one plotter, I don't know yet).

I may try using cut to start with, just to get the look and feel of all my sensors and then tweak the script using sed (with cut I can manage to get anything I want without a learning curve).

I'll print your answers above and keep that along with your readme.syntax, as it was important for me to understand the logic behind all this.

tnx again!

Oh, just a quick one: can yasp-scripted use alarms on sensors? Say if my temps, fan speeds, load, HDD usedspace go over or under a certain number for a certain period of time to say, blink the value, bold it and change it's color? These alarms are very useful in gkrellm, cuz you don't have your eyes always watching the monitor (or windows are over it), but you love to know when something goes beyond a normal limit. - Feb 03 2010
Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Hi again,

I don't quite understand the difference between 2 sensor name lines and the use of sed command. I post here cuz I think it will help others.

What is the difference between these 2 lines:

sensor name="Core0Temp" type="program" cmd=%sensors | grep -A1 'Core 0' | xargs | sed "s/.*Temp: \(+[0-9]*\).*Temp: \(+[0-9]*\)../\1 \2/"%


sensor name="Core0Temp" type="program" cmd="sensors | grep 'Core 0' | cut -c 15-20"

Why using sed instead of cut? Yes I have read the README.SYNTAX, it just says "cuz you can re-use sensors". Not sure why you can't with cut?

Ok, some sed documentation can be found here

But how long would I need to read until I would understand why you use sed? :)

Thought a simple question would yield to a simpler answer than reading all the doc. :)

tnx - Feb 02 2010

Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments


I mentioned in another post how a huge fan of gkrellm I am. But how sad it looks so ugly cuz based on GTK2 engine which doesn't fit well KDE4 (not blaming GTK for that! It's the way it looks, that's all).

I tried your script cuz it's fully plasmoid, which of course fits KDE4.

I have some very good points to tell about your script. I think you have found a way to have a very customizable monitor, which is what I need to get all my gkrellm functions and displays into a plasmoid.

I am no developer, though, so the only downside of your great customizable script is, for me, the coding of the scripts I want. lolll

Sure I can manage a few things, but there are other things I really have no knowledge for. Now if I want to learn, what do you suggest? Should I ask you the questions and you guide me into building the scripts or is there a better way?

Lemme explain :

For examples,

-I want to add the FANs speed from lmsensors (sensors command). I believe I can do so using grep. I have tried copying and adapting the coretemp line for fans, but it didn't work. Maybe I need to dig more into it, a simple grep of sensors did not work.

-My CoreTemps are blank by default. So I have modified your default line which looks for "CoreTemp0" I think for "CoreTemp 0", or just a very small change like that. It works, but it returns the whole line from sensors, with maximum degrees and everything. I need to CUT the result of grep, I think I have to use CUT, so MAN CUT or google on CUT should help me and then pipe it in grep. I can probably do that.

-I want to have 4 Core load displays, not 1 for the whole CPU. Not sure how to do that.

- I would like to merge the Core Temps at the bottom of the each Core load display (or right in the middle, centered H and V into a big colored font). That I have no idea.

-I would like to have the total d/l and total u/l of the day and the month for network (eth0), having the month being automatically reset at a specified date. I think I can grep | cut ifconfig to get the day's total (I was able to create a new line for that, but got no blank data so far), but for the month I don't know...

-I would like to have each selected partition's read/write I/O, both graphical display (with selectable time to show the graphic I/Os, for 30sec, 60sec, etc.) and in K/bytes/M/bytes. I think you mentioned how to do it in another post, I have to re-read it to better understand, google a few things, but again my non-dev knowledge causes me some problems. I am unsure where to start and what to google for to know how to write your script.

-As a nice to have, to have a progress bar for each TOP procs based on the % load would be great too, it's visually much easier to identify load consuming procs as you don't need to read a number. so where the % of each proc is mentioned, I would have a progress bar just under each proc, from left (0%) to right (100%).

As you can see, there is a lot of things to do. I am pretty sure with enough knowledge it's doable, after looking at your scripts. But it's up to me to do it, I understand that.

If I can manage to do all this, god nothing can beat your script! :) It's just a matter of having development knowledge, whereas gkrellm let's you do this by clicking in the gui config panel. This is why I have a lot of work to do, but I unfortunately need a lot of help as well...

The upside is I am quite convinced your script-oriented idea can do all of this and many more, which is great cuz you are the only solution for monitor plasmoids with so much customization. :)

All thumbs up for that!
And shame on my I don't have the knowledge I need. :)

Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Well, both files are located exactly where you told me. Except that since I have a 64-bits OS, the .so needs to be in /usr/lib64 and not /usr/lib. Now it loads.

I get "Waiting for Wlan0Down" and it shuts down one of my case fan. Weird.

So now that nothing shows, I have to play with the scripts to get something? It's blank plasmoid only with what I wrote above inside.

So with this I won't need to enter PW all the time, it will save it?

When I edit root files using my normal user, I use a small root menu to edit files (rename, copy, move, delete, edit, etc.) and it asks for root PW all the time.

With kdesudo it will save the PW and not ask for it?

KDM4 Themes by codicem 14 comments

Ok tnx for the tip, I found it. It's a little different in openSUSE, so for those people, here goes:

On 11.x versions, you have to extract the theme to /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes and then go to YAST, etc/sysconfig Editor, under Desktop>Display Manager>DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME and type in NewEssentialFinal.

Reboot. :) - Jan 24 2010

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

The INSTALL file says the following:

Copy the file yasp_scripts/systemmonitor.script to $HOME/.yasp.script (if not available yet)
Otherwise, nothing will happen with this applet...
Or choose while running this applet a scriptfile of interest.

Install instructions:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=release ../
sudo make install

I did that. No mention of:

yasp-scripted.desktop -->
$KDE_PREFIX/share/kde4/services/yasp-scripted.desktop -->

So I will try what you said. :)

tnx - Jan 24 2010

KDM4 Themes by codicem 14 comments

I use your splash and want to match with the kdm theme.

But how surprising, after googling I was unable to install it.

I tried different things and editing kdmrc files as well, didn't work.

Tried also the following:

1:- sudo zypper in kdebase3-kdm (I already had the kdm package)
2:- extract 'NewEssenceFinal' into '/opt/kde3/share/apps/kdm/themes/'
3:- yast2 -> system -> sysconfig editor
3a:- navigate to 'Display Manager' then change 'DISPLAYMANAGER' field from 'kdm4' to 'kdm' (NOT kdm3!)
3b:- navigate to 'Display Manager' then change'DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME' to 'NewEssenceFinal'
4:- konsole and type 'kcmshell kdm'

I use openSUSE 11.2 64-bits.

What am I missing?

tnx! :) - Jan 23 2010

Ok well I am compiling it, after installing dependencies and doing symlinks from my lib64 to lib folder, when I load the widget it says:

Could not find requested component: yasp_scripted.

I have copied systemmonitor.script to .yasp.script as a FILE and I also tried as .yasp_scripted and also without the dot (.). No success. What is that error?

And there is also the disk monitor which displays grafx of the I/O with the read Kb/s and write kb/s. This is also very useful, so if there is a command for that your monitor could do it if we pass it on the command, right? - Jan 21 2010
Yasp-Scripted (Systemmonitor) v1.0.8a

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments

Actually, it's also how things are displayed that is very customizable. For example the Network graphic monitor, you can show the U/D k/s, you can show the total U/D of the day, the total of the month, reset month any day you want, you can split view to show download on top and upload at bottom and you can place the numbers (totals, speed, etc.) anywhere on the network graph section. I don't know if yours can do these details. The network graphic customization is important to me for quick reference and monitoring and also cuz I have limited d/l amount per month that I can watch live.

For CPU graphic monitors, it can show User processes usage vs System processes usage or the total of both, here too you can split view, etc... you can choose to display % and Core Temp besides each core graphic monitor (I have 4 cores, it's useful to have the % and temp of each just besides) and many other things. Of course it can show both CoreTemps and CPUTemp.

I'll play around with your script and see what I can get. :) Maybe it's not too complicated to do a few adjustments.

Plasma 4 Extensions by finkandreas 301 comments


Hey this one is quite close to what I need! I'll give it a try...

Do you know gkrellm? It's not a plasmoid, but that's the one I am forced to use, it is EXTREMELY configurable and shows more than you could imagine. I use things no plasmoid monitor offers, so I hope I can do it with yours.

But if I can't do you have an idea on how we could import gkrellm functions into your monitor? We could talk outside the site so that I can explain what I am looking for.

But I swear, if you can come up with a solution on how to make it as customizable as gkrellm, you will dominate the plasmoid monitor market! lolll

gkrellm uses gtk or gtk2 and has not changed grafx look for years! It doesn't fit at all KDE4, but I still use it, cuz no other can offer as much as gkrellm.

tnx! :)

Now that's a great set! Sets I should say, as I cannot decide which to use (silver or black)! lolll

One question though, have you noticed that on folders that have small previews on them (one with images, videos or even the temp folder, which has stars on it) when you hover the mouse on the folder the tooltip will show Oxygen's blue folder instead of yours?

Plus the ability to add my own? Ok I didn't see that part! :) Now that is what I call customizing. :)

I'll wait for the cron version and I'll check that out. :) I am in no hurry, take your time, better to release a version with less bugs than release too quickly with a buch of bugs. :)

tnx for the work! - Dec 16 2008

System Software by luckyb 244 comments

Are you saying there is no possibility to create cron schedules and leave cron automatically starting the jobs? Next version? Cool then. :)

Also, how can you enable/disable other rsync options? There is a lot of options/parameters in rsync, I don't see them all looking at the screenshots on the website. I think I use more of these parms, I will check my script.

Having those 2 above functions would certainly make it the best! :) Currently I create my own shell scripts with rsync parameters and safety checks parameters as well and schedule them in kcron. Would be easier to modify or create new with your app.

tnx! - Dec 16 2008

This theme would be the best if it could work under KDE4.

Many icons just don't work, they either stay with the old icons or different ones are mapped (the BACK and FORWARD buttons is the blue-black kde menu icon, not the nice arrows). The simple blue horizontal folder icon is not changed at all and I could not make it work by copying the black vertical folder to other kde4 icon folders.

There are other cases where the icons don't map.

Plz port it to KDE4, this theme is so nice it cannot die with KDE3.

Compiz Themes by infrareddude 13 comments

Ok, actually with KDE you have to modify the *.qtcurve file. I have done it and am quite close to your theme. That should be fine for me, though I don't have the brushed look and the blue color inside buttons only show when I put the mouse on them. Too bad I can't attach my qtcurve file, someone else could validate the qt theme is working. - Feb 10 2008
Mac4Lin ver.0.4 Emerald Theme

Compiz Themes by infrareddude 13 comments

Really nice, I am moving slowly to all the parts, this is one of the rare big complete scheme!

I have some small issues, how do you get the color schemes in KDE? What you show here is the window decorator, compiz-emerald. But that changes only the window borders. I have looked through your complete package and all I see is GTK stuff, but I need a *.kcsrc theme file for my color scheme.

How do you get Mac4Lin menu bars and button bars colors along with background and text colors for KDE?

For the moment I did it myself trying to match your colors, though the bright aqua blue I cannot find the color code/number, nor did I find the followed-link color. Rest is fine.

Other things like Firefox scrollbar being grey and not aqua blue (seems like that on yours too?) and my other programs don't change the scroll bar, I keep having the squared grey bar.

Can you guide me through that?
tnx a lot! :)
Keep up the nice work! - Feb 09 2008
