Thread: In openSUSE 13.1's KInfoCenter, how view disk information (used/free space)?

  1. #1

    Default In openSUSE 13.1's KInfoCenter, how view disk information (used/free space)?

    In the old "My COmputer" there was a great graphical UI that showed how much space was free and used for each device (e.g. "/", "/home", usb sticks, etc). I am unable to find this in openSUSE 13.1's KInfoCenter. Where is this info?

    For anyone wondering, I found it (and it is a much worse user experience than previously. you have to work to get there and you have to view each individually):

    Device Information -> Device Viewer - > Storage Drives -> Hard Disk Drive

    Under that, it lists "sda", "sda1", etc. Click on each of those and it tells you.

    This is an awful design choice. I can't even see which is "/home" or root until I click on it.

    A bit off topic (CLI) but this command might be useful:
    Code:
    df -h
    You can also find this information in KInfocentre > Device Information ...

    You can still install that old "My Computer" thingy:
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/kio_sysinfo

    Then type "sysinfo:/" into the Alt+F2 dialog, Konqueror or dolphin.
    I'm not sure if that package creates an icon on the desktop automatically, maybe you would have to do that yourself if you want to have it. Just copy over /usr/share/applications/kde4/my_Computer.desktop to ~/Desktop:
    Code:
    cp /usr/share/applications/kde4/my_Computer.desktop ~/Desktop
    or use dolphin to do that.

    You might try filelight.
