Hey!

Interesting... Well the paths I used for the temp files do show the right temp in my system (usually 45-60ยบ C)... however, I have noticed that other themes I've checked made by people who don't use PCLinuxOS have different paths set for this info, paths that don't work for my system. So my best guess would be to try to locate these files in your system. (Check whats in the /proc/acpi/thermal_zone folder and play with the files you find in there until you find the one that does give the right info...)
Let me know if this helps! - Apr 12 2008

Thanks for the kudos! I used icons available in the Breathless 1.1 icon set by BigHead, which I downloaded from kde-look.org. Just look for them in the icons section.
I must add, this is possibly the best icon set there is for KDE, it has icons for all the apps and stuff in my computer.

Hope this helps! And thanks again for the positive input. Don't forget to vote! =) - Apr 10 2008

Hey! Glad you found a workaround. About the other question, here's the deal. When you download and install a theme through SuperKaramba's "Get New Themes" menu (or automatically), SuperKaramba copies the theme file in a hidden folder (/home/YOURUSERNAME/.kde/share/apps/superkaramba/themes/),. Meanwhile, if you set it manually, it wont copy the file anywhere, but it will just run it from whichever location you specify. Therefore, if you delete the folder, SuperKaramba won't be able to load the theme simply because it doesn't exist anymore. You could do one of two things: either create a folder somewhere where you can store all the themes you download and run manually (which is what I do), or, if you don't want to see the folders, go directly to the folder where SK installs the themes automatically and copy the theme folder you downloaded there, and then run the theme file with superkaramba. As you can see, either way the theme file IS physically present on the system, however, when you install it automatically, you can't see it because its inside a hidden folder (.kde (notice the dot-that tells the system it is a hidden folder)).
NOTE: to see and open the hidden folder, inside konqueror, click view> show hidden files.

Hope this helps understand how SuperKaramba works! - Apr 10 2008

By the way, the same applies for the #RAM group. Just change the font size and/or font. - Apr 09 2008

Hey!

No worries about the english. Mine isn't much better :) . Well, looking at your picture and comparing it to the original, seems like your fontsize is too big. My guess is, you don't have all the fonts I used installed on your computer.
Anyways, one solution is to open the LappyMonitor.theme file with KWrite or another text editor, and scroll down to the appropiate group (you'll see its called #DISK). There, you'll see the different "text" lines have "fontsize" values. Just make those numbers smaller and everytime you save the file, the theme will reload and you'll be able to see if its good enough or if you need to make them smaller.
Another solution is to do the same thing, except this time, instead of changing the "fontsize", you'll change the "font". Each font has a different size, so experiment with different fonts and see if there's one you like. You can find a full list of your installed fonts in the Control Center...

Hope this helps! Let me know if this solution worked for you. - Apr 09 2008
