Description:

I've tried many system info desklets for Karamba, I came across the Cybertron theme and I loved it's clean look & simplicity but I wasn't fully satisfied with the layout. So I've made a few improvements to the content, added some more images, redone everything in english and done separate themes for some instant distro-specific gratification thus making it a bit more n00b-friendly ;)

In the package there are....
4 SuSE themes
3 Tux themes
2 Slackware themes
2 Ubuntu themes
1 Kubuntu theme
1 Debian theme
1 Fedora theme
1 Gentoo theme

...and there's a choice between grey-transparent & clear-transparent backgrounds.

Enjoy...

..and don't forget to vote. ;)

Just what I was looking for - but the font is tough to read on my PC. What font was it created with so I can get it installed?

Thanks for your efforts ---

Open the theme in a text editor, and locate this line.
"defaultfont font="Sans" fontsize=9 color=255,255,255 shadow=1"
and change "shadow=1" to "shadow=0"

hi there,

I was just wondering how I could change the "MB" display for the disk space into a "GB" one?
Great theme anyway, very easy to configure... Thanks a lot!

I think the theme is far too cpu heavy...

I get 34% load when nothing else is running, and when I stop your theme the cpu idles at 5%.

I've just had a look into this and it seems that the extra CPU usage is being caused by the network monitoring.
34% CPU seems very high though...
Are you using ndiswrapped windows drivers for your NIC by any chance?

Really nice looking......too bad it uses so much of my processor to use it.

Remove the shadow=1 effect. It doesn't help asthetically or practically in any way.

Yes, I am aware the processor is automatically detected. I should have been more specific and asked about the processor picture. All show an AMD processor for an Intel Chip. Can you make a P4 Processor Picture for this also?

Yo lo tengo instalado en mi Suse y funciona a las mil maravillas. Ocupa un espacio reducido y su contenido es claro,conciso y necesario para un control visual de muchas opciones que de otra manera seria necesario abrir difentes ventanas para monitorizar estos servicios.

Lo recomiendo por su sencillez y efectividad.

Saludos Cordiales

This is awesome. I have been looking for a new SM. Anyway, are you inclined to change the processor for a Pentium4 based machine?

Just curious. I sure would like to have a P4 Processor.

The CPU is detected automatically by the "cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep '^model name' | head -1 | sed -e 's/^.*: //" command.

The screenshots where taken on my laptop, hence they all show the Pentium M CPU.
