KDE Priority handler

Utilities by Lilltiger 27 comments

That seems very strange if you have qt3.3.6 it should work, you can try to edit the make file and force it to look for 3.3.6.

On my spare time I am working on an newer version of this application, it's now splitted into an daemon part and an client.

An with the first release it will contain an kde4 plasmoid an an cli client. But it's still under development and unfortunally it's going slow due to lack of time/money on my side. - Dec 27 2008

Great to hear, dnt hessitate to give inputs and report issues.. I havent got a single bugreport since the beta, thought i havent encountered a bug myself since RC2 (iv had it running 24/7 since it's release).
And only feature request is to add ionice support wich im putting up till the KDE 4 release.

So either all users are happy with it as it is now, or noone is using it :D - Jan 23 2008

Try:
./configure
make
then as root:
make install

It works on both 32bit and 64bit for me. - Jan 19 2008

Not realy, as most users have different preferenses. I myself like to have the music players at nice 1, the kde background processes at nice 10 then i/o at nice 11 and webbrowser at 15 then Trash/Buggy at 20. And inbetween I put groups for apps depending on how important i think they are compared to the others. - Nov 09 2007

The issue with ionice is that it requires root access. I'll try to figure out a nice way to do this for the 2.0 release. - Oct 29 2007

I think it is solved now with the new group handling. Either on just selects a group (right click) and raise the priority of the whole group. Or select the app and raise it individually (it will then become independent) then it's just to add it to the group again after having had it boosted.

But if there is an demand after some other way, like profiles/groups that raises tehe priority of something for a certain amouth of time i will add that feature. - Oct 01 2007

My code is already separated and built with a daemon in mind. While im right now working on the feature/GUI so i know what i need to change in the backend first before making it into a daemon, and I also want it to be more stable. - Sep 16 2007

Im not sure, i guess KDE Priority handler might be a more mature name, while knice has a nice ring to it :D. But name it KDE Priority handler (knice) or something :) Still just a beta, name may change. :0) - Sep 14 2007

Thats why music is the top one :)

But yes, I will add an group manager where the user can add/remove and change an group.

How would you like the temporary raise/lowering renice work, should it raise it only for a certain time, or untill the user choose to lower it. - Sep 14 2007

Well there is an slight issue with this, as this program operates between 0 and 19 in nice level, and if you remove the control the nice level will default to 0.
This means higher priority then all the other processes and same as the xserver, and this is a bad thing..

Im thinking of adding an default renice level to use on unrated (to get it away from 0).

The idea is to have all processes categorized, and if you cange your mind of a processes just expand the "Rated" tree and change it's group.

If you would be able to remove it, then the app would just find it as unrated again. - Sep 14 2007

> Notifing of every process that is not rated.

This was the intention, but this might get to messy. So I'm thinking of just makin the systray icon indicate that there is unrated processes.

> Cannot remove a rating.

Why would you want this, as you can change an rating. Dont see why you want to "unrate" a process.

> SIGBARTed on alt-Tab to firefox (Debian)

Can you reproduce this, I have tried on archlinux but cant manage to get it to crash.

> Info needed:

I'll add this to the description of the app.

Thanks for your input. - Sep 14 2007

KDE 3.5 Themes by motyR 198 comments

This is an great looking theme, althought i would like to be able to change the size(height) of the windeco, and if possible for the tabs as well..

And now to the buggy thing.. im running kde 3.4 RC1 and tried both Metal4kde 0.1 and 0.2 with the same result.
After a short while the desktop background imge changes into an stripple backgroud, this is very ugly and annoying.. I dont have this problem with any other style.. (like Baghira).. - Mar 31 2005
