Description:

This SuperKaramba widget is very handy for laptop users.

It shows your wireless card's signal strength as a series of red lights. 5 red lights is full strength, 0 is a dead signal.

You can also right click on the widget and use the configure menu to turn on text that tells you the exact signal strength and the name of the wireless interface.

It's all very simple.

Enjoy.

I installed the theme, but there are no lights. This is the output of cat /proc/net/wireless

Inter-| sta-| Quality | Discarded packets | Missed | WE
face | tus | link level noise | nwid crypt frag retry misc | beacon | 16
eth0: 0000 1 181. 163 0 0 0 0 0 0

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Thanks,

Brian

You must not have read the README... :)

Did you copy weather.py to /usr/bin?

Me either, I think it is because we both are using eth0 for wireless whereas he uses wlan0

Thank You so much for making this! I have needed this. Been haing some trouble getting the distance I wanted out of my wireless card, but last night I was able to watch the strength while tweaking my wireless router and got the distance I needed. Thanks Again!
