Description:

This is my first superkaramba theme, it uses the package hddtemp, please verify if your system has it installed.
Please excuse my english, I'm not a native speaker.
I modify this image(http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=28748)
And made the Icon, from 2 images from the web.
The entire theme is in spanish, but you can translate to any language.
I really apreciate your comments!
Thank you so much, and greetings from Medellin-Colombia!

Just set:
program="/usr/sbin/hddtemp -n /dev/sda"
instead of:
program="hddtemp -n /dev/sda"
or copy /usr/sbin/hddtemp to /bin/hddtemp
That works for me.
Regards

Didn't show hard drive temps. So I looked into the theme and did the command to see hard drive temp. I got a permission denied on /dev/hda

did the same command with sudo in front and it worked and showed my hard drive temp. if there was a workaround to this permission thing then id find this useful.

yeah, same here. I tried chmod 4755 on hddtemp, even linked it to /usr/bin, but still no joy.

Anybody any ideas??? I googled and there does not seem to be an apparent solution...

hddtemp -n /dev/sda
WARNING: Drive /dev/sda doesn't appear in the database of supported drives
WARNING: But using a common value, it reports something.
WARNING: Note that the temperature shown could be wrong.
WARNING: See --help, --debug and --drivebase options.
WARNING: And don't forget you can add your drive to hddtemp.db
/dev/sda: WDC WD800JD-75MSA1: 46°C or °F

but I don't see anything in the widget... ?

Please, search you Hard Disk in the Drive Base of the hddtemp applicattion.
Use: $hddtemp -b
Maybe your drive is not supported!
I hope you enjoy this theme!

After trying to run hddtemp deamon:
"Starting disk temperature monitoring daemon: no disks with monitoring capability were found."

Is it normal, or do i have really crappy hard disk drive?

Edit to previous post: The above is true only for sata-disks of course.
Also, sata disks with libata-driver appear as /dev/sda ..., not hda as used in this theme.

if you're using a kernel < 2.6.16, you can't query the hd-temperature because the libata-driver doesn't support the neccessary ioctl-call. Update your kernel and it should work.

Hi ricardo, maybe you hard disk not has S.M.A.R.T, capabilities, if you can check if your Model of Hard Disk has this Capabilities!
I hope this comment helps you!
