Nvidia screenlet

Hello everyone,

As you can see I've been rather busy lately. I'm busy with school and I'm getting to the point to receive my bachelor degree in a few months. I just wanted to let you guys know that development in this screenlet is still being done. Just at a lower pace.

What is to come in the next release you ask? Here is a small addition list:

* Bios version
* Architecture (core name)
* Bustype
* Type of videoram (DDR2/DDR3/etc...)
* Shader Clock
* Number of stream units
* ROP units (raster operation)
* Fanspeed

And the finishing touch is that the processor load will be significantly lower!

I hope that I informed you guys enough for now.

Sincerely yours,

René Jansen

Hello everyone,

First I'd like to apologize for this late reaction. I had to go to GB for work for a week.

Anyway, I received some personal messages with the question to make the screenlet put out information the user only wants and not all information. As can be seen in the README file that's exactly what's on the TODO list. I will be working on that in the next few days.

I would also like to take the opportunity to tell all of you that you really need to update to the newest drivers and packages. Some people have outdated packages and my code relies on the newest ones I'm afraid.

Regards,

Hi Ixlam,

As far as I know the screenlet is dependent on nvidia-glx-new, nvidia-settings and of course python (python is needed to run screenlets anyway). So as a total I can say: You need a Nvidia graphics card superior to the MX series. FX series should work but not all features work because these series don't have all the sensors. CPU/Motherboard chipsets and alike are not dependencies

I believe the 6600 should work. Maybe not all functions such as temperature (I don't know which card can do a specific feature). Nvidia MX series and lower won't work I guess.

But you can always give me the output from:

python ~/.screenlets/NVidia/NVidiaScreenlet.py

Hello everyone,

The bug reported by dmolinap has been fixed in version 0.4. Issue was that some options in nvidia-settings don't apply to all types of monitors. Solved using xrandr to determine resolution. - Jun 04 2008

Could you mail me the details of your problem. In a terminal type:

python ~/.screenlets/NVidia/NVidiaScreenlet.py - Jun 04 2008

Try re-installing the nvidia-settings package. I don't see why the frontendresolution wouldn't work. If the problem persist please mail me your nvidia driver version and your nvidia-settings version.

A few nvidia installations don't have output for frontendresolution. This is rather strange and I can't find the reason why. Usually the backendresolution works. So I'm going to add that in the updated version. Probably done somewhere upcoming weekend. Keep checking gnome-look.org for an update.

I hope you can wait a few days.

Regards,
René

off topic: I wish there could be a standard in notation. It would save programmers a lot of time.

Thank you for the translation mots.
But the problem remains I'm affraid. Unless I don't get a mail with the details and/or reports I can't do anything to help on my end. - May 26 2008

I'm sorry but I don't know spanish. Could you (or someone here at gnome-look.org) translate it? And if possible send me an email with details and reports of your problem.

Hello Anduu,

I know about the CPU spikes, it also does that on my pc. I will look into that issue.

Concerning the refresh interval, fonts and colors, it should be easy to implement. Certainly going to be in an updated version.

The specific dragging area was/is annoying to me too. I'm still working on that issue but for the moment no success.

Making the screenlet wider isn't the best thing to do I believe considering the amount of workingspace being cut. To be able to fully show the GPU type I will let the user choose font sizes.

Hello everyone,

I've been looking into some bugreports and I've come to the conclusion that the differences in country notation is a problem. For instance, in my country ',' is the way to write a 2 decimal number. In other countries this would be a '.'. This will be fixed and some code cleaning will be done in the update.

Thank you for waiting and again my apologies for the bugs.
