    Default What's up with ksysguard?

    In previous distros that I've ran I've allways used ksysguard (Ctrl+Esc) to view the tasks running and how much cpu they eat away, so that I can easily kill something that gets a little greedy (Thinking about nspluginviewer here).

    In openSUSE I can't see the user% or system% coloumns that I'm so used to, so I had a brief look in the handbook but I couldn't find out how they should be added just that they should be there. So my question is how do I add them?

    There's a drop down button right of the "Search" field, is that what you are looking for?

    No I mean the coloumns "Name", "PID", "User, Time" etc.

    Available here. What do you see on your current system? I can but guess you minimzed or moved the columns.

    He is correct about the missing columns. In older versions, a person could click the columns and add columns that showed CPU usage in percent for system, user, etc.. These columns are no longer available in OpenSuSE 11. Also, the option to monitor CPU temperatures in the "graph" side of the application is not available. A person can use "sensors" in a terminal to view a still picture of temps, but can no longer keep a running tab of them in System Guard.

    i just hate it...every time i 'upgrade' i hold my breath to see if what *I* want
    and use in apps like ksysguard remain there, or if they have been
    removed/replaced by someone who calls their coding "progress"..

    how do they make those decisions?

    is there a poll being taken somewhere where i could vote on what to keep and
    what to ditch??

    if so, i wanna vote to keep WordPerfect 5.0, the best word processor every made!

    Now I see. I never used that feature. Any idea why it is gone?

    I just tried out KDE4.1 again and the missing columns in KDE3's ksysguard is available in KDE4.1.

    I guess I'll run with the next generation ksysguard then personally..

    There was/is a known bug in KDE 3.5.9 and KDE 4.x ksysguard which fails to include the lmsensors sensors. That was a patch in February and the ksysguard team has presumed it was fixed. But at least in the openSUSE versions, it is not. I have posted this to the dev's who have been surprised that the bug is still there. I don't know why it is, and I don't have time to look at the code of the specific package that openSUSE is using. Right now I am awaiting a reply from the dev's to my msg confirming the bug still exists in openSUSE. Other users have compiled their own patched source (the patch is pretty simple), but since in openSUSE ksysguard is in a large KDE package, I'm reluctant to try.

    hehe, good to know. I was also assuming that I did some accidental shuffling of colums. Pretty strage this got removed, even if it was not intended...
