It's a very simple package. So 'maintenance' would just mean
* Change the version number in the PKGBUILD file
* Run 'makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD' to add a new checksum
* Remove the old checksum
* Run 'makepkg --source' to get a src.tar.gz
* Upload that to the AUR ('Submit' button)
I think it's just a matter of who knows first when a new version appears here. :) If you want to try, get an AUR account and send me a pm to arrange the handover. - Jul 08 2010

I made this nice theme available via
Do you want to take over? And maybe you could add 1280x800 and 1440x900 so we would get the backgrounds on some wide screens too? - Jul 07 2010
+1 for this. Would be great for Xfce/plain-GTK users too. - Feb 23 2010
Yes, indeed it does !

Thank you very much :) - Mar 04 2009
first i want to say this is really good work. :)

Unfortunately i encountered a problem with qtcurve-gtk2 crashing the Xfce4 window manager xfwm4 every time i hit Alt-Tab.

ArchLinux i686
Package Versions
xfwm4: 4.6.0-1 (not affected: 4.4.3-1)
qtcurve-gtk2: or 0.61.2-1 or 0.61.1-1 (not affected: 0.60.0 and 0.59.7)
gtk2: 2.14.7-1
xorg-server: 1.5.3-4

At was said:
... the main difference between 4.4.3 and 4.6 in that particular part of the code is that the tabwin widget calls
gtk_draw_focus() ...

For now i have to use 0.60.0 and start xfce with

Any comments or even fixes ? :)

Hmm, I'm just guessing, but I think an "average user" will just fail to use this stuff because of not knowing how to install it. - Aug 21 2008

First of all I have to say that your app works very good, thanks.

It would be very nice, if the scale of the traffic plotter could be set to some fixed maximum, because otherwise it is quite difficult to know what is really going on.
Even nicer it would be if it could be set to use a logarithmic scale. This way one could see little amounts too even when maximum is big.
For example the range from 100 B/s to 100 MB/s would need only six scale lines. (100 B/s - 1 KB/s - 10 KB/s - 100 KB/s - 1 MB/s - 10 MB/s - 100 MB/s - Even the range from 1 B/s to 100 MB/s should be possible.) - Feb 03 2007
