SpecStatus is a multi-function system monitor based on kstatus v1.1 by karraskal.

SpecStatus includes all of the best features of kstatus, and adds to it with numerous improvements to "at-a-glance" readability, a simplified style, and default controls for the best music player in the world (amaroK of course).

SpecStatus has excellent visibility on both light and dark backgrounds, and a clean, Konsole-like style.

The graphics are taken from the excellent Black+White Icon theme - http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=24645

This theme is designed to use a font from the artwiz-aleczapka pack. Unfortunately, SuperKaramba refuses to use this font unless it's installed system-wide. The theme should now work properly without the font installed.

The artwiz-aleczapka pack is available at:


--SpecStatus 1.2 - 05/28/2006--
Fixed font formatting problems.
Removed gelly.pcf from theme pack. Still used as default font.

--SpecStatus 1.1 - 05/24/2006--
Numerous small script rewrites
Minor graphical adjustments
CPU Frequency now updates (requested feature)
NowPlaying writes on multple lines - Performer on top line, song title on second
Changed Memory readout - Cache and Buffers excluded

--SpecStatus 1.0 - 05/09/2006--
Changed font to "gelly"
Colored text readout for clarity
Changed icons to "Black And White"
Re-aligned text and graphics
Changed audio info and controls from XMMS to amaroK
Updated background graphic
Altered progress bar (increased visibility)

Forked from Kstatus 1.1
-- 1.1
fixed problem with hyperthreading processors

-- 1.0
first release!

Glad to hear ya liked it. :)

I've got an updated version in the works that fixes some of v1.0's shortcomings. It should be available in the next couple days.

This is my favorite status karamba. Am using it and love it. Maybe only thing I miss is options for add/remove parts, for example I would like to remove "time" and "kernel" section, and/or leave just cpu, mem, net and maybe amarok..

 New Version Coming!

Thanks for the feedback, T3rm1n4t0r. I'll add that to the list of suggestions for the next version.

About that... I'm drawing up plans for SpecStatus 2.0, which is going to be cleaner, badder and better than before. I'm looking for your help!

I've got an open ear to any and all ideas for features. The sky's the limit, and anything goes. Tell me now what you'd like to see in SpecStatus 2.0, and there's a good chance it'll make it in!

ok pal, here we go:
1; to turn on/off some stuff as I said before(this is the only "important" and easy to implement)
2; my string "AMD Athlon(tm) XP ....." is so long that last few letters cross black border(check my "elite" screenshots here in screenshots section)
3;with these smaller fonts now, I think there could fit at least 3 lines so I could choose what disk partitions to show, for example /var /home / would be my preference. /var is same important as /. Or add /var simple as permanent.
4;for amarok, maybe to be able to show open file/dir dialog on right click for adding new/other files/dirs

This is a great widget, I love it's simplicity.

I have made some improvements, first of all I make use of the `defaultfont´ tag and secondly I added two sensors for wlan quality and bit rate.

Maybe someone is interested in this, you can get the updated `SpecStatus.theme` file from this URL:

Simply put this file into `~/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/SpecStatus` and overwrite the old one.

To the developer: It would be interesting to add a configuration applet so a user could activate wlan and also set the desired devices in a graphical way.

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.
