Great theme! I followed the instructions to install it and it's working well.
I have a small issue with the CPUs temperature reading. On the instructions, the sensor reading is 'Core 0: +47C'. My chip reads 'Core0 Temp: +47C', so the monitor shows 'Temp: Temp:'. I'm guessing it's a parsing error, if you can tell me how to fix it, i'd appreciate it.

HI,

yes it's a parsing error. You have to make some changes in the zebraDualCore.py/zebraSoloCore.py file.

1.- Search for the line
"if l1=="Core 0":
str1='sensor=program program="sensors |grep \'Core 0\' | awk \'{ print $3 }\' |sed s/+// |line 1"'" (it's in the class "CpuTemp")

2.- Replace awk \'{ print $3 }\' by awk \'{ print $4 }\'

3.- Save the file and restart the theme

I hope this could help you.

I tried what you recommended and it didn't help. I think it is because of the lack of the space in the sensors result for my laptop:

$ sensors
k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp: +41.0°C
Core0 Temp: +33.0°C
Core1 Temp: +38.0°C
Core1 Temp: +35.0°C

I hope you can show me a way to make it work, I really like the theme.

Hi,

1.- type the following command in your terminal:

sensors |grep 'Core0 Temp' |awk '{print $2}' |sed s/+// |line 1

you could also play with other inputs (f.e. '{print $3} or grep 'Core0' ...)

The output should be like this:
47.0°C

2. change the line named above according to the correct command.

Thanks for your suggestion!
I've made some changes and updated the zebra files on my web site.

For not displaying your location, just leave the input field "City" empty!

Hello,
I just installed this and something isn't right. It looks nothing like the screenshots. It's only showing the resources of my two processors and nothing else. There's no background, only text. And when I right click on it and select configure, nothing happens. What could be wrong? I installed all of the required programs.

Hi I have problems with runing it on KDE4. Is this because python isn't yet supported for plasma superkaramba support?

First three groups are shown but graphs aren't. I can post screenshot here.

I really like this theme, however does anyone know why this theme increases the superkaramba processes by at least 7%?

Yea, lm-sensors works perfectly, I just can't figure out how to make the theme script get the info (the grep line)...or is this info on the website you referenced...I couldn't find it...thanks for the response...
