Description:

after a long time searching for a monitor that really fill my needs, i've found one called Gentoo-monitor.

But the colorscheme of that monitor dont looks pretty on my desktop, so i've decided to modificate it, and here is my success!!

also added a RAM monitor.

perfectly working on Sabayon 4.2, 5.0 and 5.1 using KDE 4.x

i hope this will help someone searching for a black-blue monitor and specially for those who use Sabayon Linux!

it's pretty easy to modificate the theme.

sorry if my english isn't so good, but i do my best!

NOTE: some sensors, like CPU Temperature, needs lm_sensors installed and properly configured.

For many multi processor, the line with sensors | grep 'Core0' | awk '{print $3}' | line 1
must be
sensors | grep 'Core 0' | awk '{print $3}' | line 1
Hope help it

is there a way to customize this? its too long for my 15" monitor and i need to shrink it.

also, is there a way to change the interface? i rarely use ethernet port, always wireless. it doesn't show the network packets for wireless.

it is easy to customize the network sensor, yust open the themefile 'sabayon.theme' with a plain tex editor (like kwrite) and look at the code...

i have writed some help for editing into the themefile

for the size inconvenient, i can shrink it for u, yust gimme ur email to send the new theme to you and a realsize screenshot of your desktop (u can do that with KSnapshot, its really easy) to calculate the kiker size and other possible bars that you might have :)

my email is danriffo@gmail.com

Thanks, I sent you a screen shot via email =)

I'm sorta new to linux though, how do I edit in gedit like you were saying? I know how to get to gedit, just don't know where the theme file is located

well... all themes on superkaramba installs by default on:

/home/your-username/.kde4/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/subfolder-theme-name

there is located a file called theme-name.theme, that is coded in UTF-8 (compatible with all UNIX plain text readers)

that's the file you must have to edit...
the syntax is like this:

text x=number y=number value="Hello!!" font="Verdana" fontsize=12 align=right(default is left)

the above shows a plain thext in the coordinates x,y of the theme (coordinates are in pixels) with typography Verdana, size 12 pixels and aligned to right.

for sensors:

text x=number y=number sensor=program program="some terminal command" align=right font="Terminal" fontsize=11 interval=number(in msec)

the above runs "some terminal command" on a terminal and the result of the command is stored as plain text. Any tool for text is compatible, like fontsize or align. Also, you can specify the "refresh" rate in miliseconds.
For example, if you want it to read the RAM status in MB each 2 seconds and show it on the top of the theme you can do:

text x=0 y=0 sensor=program program="free -m" font="Terminal" fontsize=12 interval=2000

that's all mate...
you can also look at the descriptions i have added to the themefile for an easy explanation of what a piece of code do for u :)

im resizing the theme for u, so wait a little, im sending you an e-mail soon :)

as a tip: run the command i've written in the "program=" part in your console and modificate it there to see what does each part of the command... it's not so easy to understand at the begginning, but it's not really hard at the end :)
