MH Home Sysmon -- simple system monitor for your hildon home

June 30, 2008 on 11:06 pm | In maemo-hackers, mh-home-sysmon | 3 Comments

After playing around with cairo, I came up with an idea and base for a leetle system monitor for the hildon home. After some twiddling and finishing, it now works somehow and installs nicely. Thanks to hns and his post on ITT for getting me over the last hurdles to get the transparency working. The new project is dubbed mh-home-sysmon and currently supports only showing cpu load and memory usage. Warning: this is the very first release and may break things and most likely will drain your battery. Please report any bugs you find to maemo-hackers ticket system, wishes welcome too (select enhancement as ticket type). Installation easiest by using the .install link.

Here's the mandatory screenshot:

New version of osso-statusbar-cpu

June 24, 2008 on 7:14 pm | In maemo-hackers, osso-statusbar-cpu | 4 Comments

Been a while since I've blogged nor done anything maemo related. Well, for a change I whipped up a new version of osso-statusbar-cpu. I hadn't built it for chinook previously (although the code would have allowed that) and it was still looking like it belonged to OS2007. I whipped up a new base icon for it (based on the battery icon stretched to bigger square).

I'm not too happy how it turned out, but having approximately zero capabilities in graphics, I decided to let it slip as is. Here's a sneak peek of what it looks like:

The .install file is available as usual.
