WMALMS - WM Another LM_Sensors applet


Preview wmalms

wmalms monitors  data obtained from a sensor chip: temperature, fan speed, voltage.

It can be used as a dockable/swallowed applet with Window Maker, BlackBox and clones (incl. FluxBox), or any window manager that supports swallowing, including gnome, kde(kpanel)-1, fvwm and clones. Alternatively, you can run wmalms as a normal window with any window manager

wmalms is designed to suit any hardware supported by lm_sensors. It provides a wide range of customized features, including window appearance,  order and representation of sensor data, refresh frequency, alarm mode, etc.

I started developing wmalms, after I tried several other  sensor monitors, and neither worked for me. If you have similar problems (but not only if ...)  check out this one ...

Snapshots above show sample wmalms appearance: window maker, transparent background, centigrade temperature scale,  w83782d sensor chip.

See  wmalms online manual  (included with any wmalms distribution)  for more information, installation hints, etc.

XHKEYS - a tool for your special keyboard


The following is just a copy from the manual. You can read  manual online The manual is included with any distribution.

While I was building my new computer,  I purchased "Turbo Media keyboard" (KB9810R): this one was really cheap, and a lot of extra keys looked to be useful. It came with a software for a dumb "operating system", but given that I use Linux for most of the time, those keys remained unused ... until recently.

xhkeys is designed to suit any keyboard  that has some extra keys that otherwise make no use with X:   "Menu" key  on a  105 key keyboard,  extra keys on some keyboard models, or laptops.

The application allows to assign a particular action to any key or key combination (key and modifiers).  An action can be of one of the following types:
