kwmnet project is the fork of famous wmnet WindowMaker applet.KDE system monitor + sysguard is not the thing I want to see on my desktop. Too slow, wants ksysguardd etc. So, here is initial alpha release of kwmnet. This is simple applet that show nice fast moving network device monitor in your kicker panel.I just get wmnet sources, take off all X Window initialization stuff and use wmnet as library for drawing in window of simple KDE panel applet. Also, I rewrite code for /proc/net/dev driver to correctly read /proc/net/dev entries.Before compiling edit string 44 in file src/kwmnet.
cpp to set your device, speed and other settings. All settings are same as in good old wmnet.It's stable and fast right now, but needs GUI configurator.Compile:./configure --libdir=/your/kde/applets/dirmakemake installThen add "wmnet" applet to panel.Hacking:If you change something, recompile and reinstall applet, open console and just kill and start "kicker" application - kicker will start with new version of applet, and you will see your changes.Requirements:· KDE 3.xWhat's New in This Release:· Code cleanup and GUI configurator improvements
