Description:

This is my theme collection of little pieces for system monitoring.
I am glad if someone try this and may have a fun.

== Features: ==

Backlight LCD style.
-- Backlight light, when specified rate of the usage is over.

Crystal glass looking.

Besides the CPU, network, memory and disk usage monitor, i add
mail_count_checker, sound_volume_monitor and calendar_and_clock.

== Note: ==

To use mail_count_checker, you must change python script (Mail_.py).
And you may want to change some program actions.
Please check the header part of python script.

ex: Mail_.py
|
| # Change these values according to your mail account.
| global ServerName, UserName, PassWord
|
| ServerName = "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
| UserName = "xxxxxxxx"
| PassWord = "xxxxxxxxxxx"
|

== Required: ==

Super Karamba
-- I have installed SuSE package. (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=19356)

Alsa sound system. alsa utility: amixer
-- I get sound volume from output of amixer.

== Thanks: ==

You can do easily in the following way.

1. Put display area of AM/PM [ Time.theme ]
ex : text x=148 y=30 name=T_AMPM . . . .
2. Get widget of AM/PM in module initWidget() [ Time.py ]
ex : ampm = karamba.getThemeText( widget, "T_AMPM" )
3. Display AM/PM in module widgetUpdate [ Time.py ]
ex : karamba.changeText( widget, ampm, time.strftime( . . .

Please refer to the following site for the format of strftime()

However, can you help me how to adjust the graph move down little bit since the graph is covering CPU and percent of performance... the percent performance only showed half display... Hope if I am clear with this?

You can change coordinats of components and font size by editing theme file "Cpu.theme".

Nice work. One comment, the calendar days do not appear to line up with the day numbers.

The single digit days cause a mislaignment with the day names. Double digit days line up OK. Hope this helps

I suppose there are some differences between my system and yours.
Please change font name following line of Time.theme

| text x=12 y=4 name=T_CAL font="misc fixed" fontsize=10

fixed font name in your system will be get following command.

$ fc-list | grep Fix
