Description:

This applet monitors various temperature, frequency and fan sources in your kicker panel.
Make sure you have enabled a supported kernel module.

Homepage:
http://kima.sourceforge.net

Features:
supported thermal sources:
- the Linux ACPI Thermal Zone driver. The corresponding kernel module is called thermal.
- the thermal sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the IBM Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS) driver. The corresponding kernel module is called hdaps.
- the Omnibook Configuration Tools & Patches. The corresponding kernel module is called omnibook.
- the iBook G4 CPU and GPU thermal zones. It may work on other Apple machines as well (please let me know).
- the thermal sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the CPU thermal sensor of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.
- the GPU thermal sensors of nvidia-settings (provided by the nVidia GPU card driver tools)
- the termal sensors provided by hddtemp daemon (make sure hddtemp runs on 127.0.0.1 port 7634 before kima starts)

supported frequency sources:
- the Linux kernel /proc/cpuinfo interface
- the Linux kernel cpufreq subsystem

supported fan sources:
- the fan sensors available through hwmon (I2C, lm_sensors, ...).
- the fan sources of the Linux ACPI driver for the IBM ThinkPad laptops. The corresponding kernel module is called ibm-acpi.
- the fan sources of the i8k kernel driver for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebooks.

misc sources:
- CPU usage source
- uptime source that displays the current system uptime
- battery source that displays the current state of charge of your batteries

misc:
- cpufreqd control module to switch cpufreqd profiles via cpufreqd remote interface

installation:
grab a appropriate package for your distribution or the sources below.

using the source:
run configure
./configure --prefix=$(kde-config --prefix)

build the sources
make

install the applet (with appropriate rights)
su -c 'make install'

finally add the applet to your KDE panel (RMB on kicker).




Changelog:

Kima 0.7.4:
- CPU usage source added
- russian translation added

Kima 0.7.3.2:

- crash fix: prevent i18n calls from within threads (it seems i18n isn't thread safe)

Kima 0.7.3.1:
- the 0.7.3 tag was inconsistent to the released tar.gz so we decided to release 0.7.3.1
- improvements regarding the dbus error handling
- XNVCtrl support fixed
- small autoconf/automake script improvements

Kima 0.7.3:
- more robust battery source in case of libhal/dbus errors

Hello marseillai,
thanks for reporting that. Could you provide a stack trace of the crash? You can follow the instructions on
http://www.elliptique.net/~ken/kima/#development
but add --enable-debug=full as a configure argument. Feel free to contact me via Jabber.
Regards
Ken

i'll try as soon as possible.
I use my own package for kima to test it for inclusion in kubuntu gutsy.
Except this bug kima is so cool! :)

It seems there are only a few users who are affected. We tried really hard to find the bug. Unfortunately it doesn't crash on my systems so its hard to make a fix. A potential glitch might be the source scanning routine where multiple threads are created. I serialized that and made a workaround package. It would be great if as many users as possible could test this one and give short feedback. Thank you.

Ken

 wakeups from idle

 
 by bleedinge on: Jun 19 2007
 
Score 50%

Kima works great, but it seems to have a small problem, since it wakes up too many times in a second.

I'm testing this with powertop. When kima is on kicker, its wakeups will rise to ~45. This won't happen when kima isn't there.
It would help if you could correct that behaviour, so laptop's battery benefit from that.

we looked into it and changed the way in which kima waits for new data. and we think that the change will greatly drop down the cpu usage.

we don't have a powertop enabled kernel to test this. you can contact us with jabber to test it: litb@jabber.org

thanks for your help.

Hello Bleedinge,
the changes are now in the svn repository. (http://www.elliptique.net/~ken/kima/#development) Let us know whether the development version of kima improves the situation. Thanks.

Sorry, for no coming back to you sooner, but exams wouldn't let me to ;)

I've built kima's svn version and it does solve the problem.

Now, with kima on kicker there is no wakeups as there were before. I'm just getting 2 wakeups per second, which is great compared to what we had before.

Thanks a lot for your efforts!!!

 ToolTip

Thank you for the program!

Kima works very good, but after some time I doesn't get any tooltip more.
All the other applets have no problem with this, only kima.

(I have compiled the program for amd64bit on Sidux)

Hello,
are you sure the tooltip works for other applets (i.e. the System Monitor)? There is a strange bug debian based systems where no kicker applet tooltips are shown after a while. Kima uses the standard mechanism to show its tooltip.
Regards
Ken

It works for any applet (kget, kwikdisk, amarok, basket, kalarm, etc.)
and also for the pager, kmenu, etc..

When I start kima it works also for kima, but after some time (30...45 minutes) it works no more (only fo kima).

At this moment every applets has its tooltip, only kima doesn't.

try hovering your mouse over the tiny arrows or over the applet handles. those tooltips also don't work here sometimes. i think it is probably a kicker bug.
yeah, you can see the tooltip of other things in kicker. but that's because they use other methods to display them.

cheers, litb.

It doesn't work.

I hope that in a new release it will be possible to open a windows with all the measures by pressing the middle mousebutton.

Thank you very much.

also tootips look horrid with the Beryl "window preview" plugin so the idea of clicking would be much welcome.

Hi !
I like this app but I think it should be nice if we could have little icons instead of labels.
Can you add the cpu load and network consomation too ?
thank you very much !

Since the only thing I use Imperial measurements for is cpu temp. (as I assume many others might) would it be possible to make the determination in the Kima config instead of globally in Kcontrol?

 throw away ksysguard

 
 by devsk on: Jun 27 2007
 
Score 50%

This cool app has taken over my kicker panel. I want it to go three steps further and completely eradicate the unmaintained junk that is ksysguard.

1. CPU usage
2. Network b/w usage
3. Disk b/w usage

ksysguard takes real estate on kicker but either does graph or numbers (UGLY), and not both. How hard would be to do both? But devs want us to wait till 4.0 before filing such enhancement requests.

Too bad for me, gkrellm doesn't have a horizontal mode and integration with kicker.

If kima displays the above (numbers are good enough, but histogram like gkrellm would be GREAT), I can completely get rid of ksysguard.

One app to rule them all!

Hello devsk,
Johannes implemented a CPU usage source. Currently it's only available in the SVN trunk. We might add the other sources later. Feel free to checkout the current development version: http://www.elliptique.net/~ken/kima/#development

Ken

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
