Thread: KDE System Monitor (KsysGuard) limited functionality

  1. #1

    Question KDE System Monitor (KsysGuard) limited functionality

    Hi there,

    I can create new tabs (called worksheets in the terminology of the system monitor) , but I can't delete them.
    Secondly I found a website, where they mentioned options in that program, that I can not find in the OS13.1 version and even if I start that monitor as superuser ... nada, zero, nothing.

    Reference website : http://fosswire.com/post/2008/06/set...ith-ksysguard/

    Any ideas what's going wrong ? Under which conditions are those other options available ? Do I need full moonlight and some garlic to delete an absolete tab ? ;-)


    TIA, Joe

    These options should be available under all conditions.

    Maybe try to delete ksysguard's config:
    ~/.kde4/share/config/ksysguardrc and ~/.kde4/share/apps/ksysguard/

    Also, do you have the same problem with a fresh user account?

    Thanks for your reply,

    Mhhh, both files/subdirs (ksysguardrc & ksysguard) do not exist ! The sudir /.kde4/share/config or apps exist though.

    Same problem with a fresh user account. Those options are not displayed. Strange.

    Then it seems to be an installation problem.

    I'm not sure what could cause this at the moment (it works fine here in 13.2), but check that you have kdebase4-workspace-ksysguardd installed.

    ksysguard is installed.

    I have the same problem on another PC with OS13.1 but 32 bit.

    Hm. Are you using KDE from the standard repos or did you add additional ones like KDE:Current?

    Hi, on the 32 bit system I have not changed anything in the KDE UI, with exception of the colours (folder setting/wall paper /colour) . I downloaded OS13.1, burned it on a CD and installed it. The system is used as a gateway, firewall & squid between our Fritz!Box and our internal network.

    On my computer I did a similar installation, but 64 bit of course. But I changed the KDE UI with different Workspace themes, colours and font sizes. But nothing from outside the Open Suse repos. I use the stock repos + Community repos, Packman & AMD/ATI FGLRX , but nothing specific concerning KDE. In none of the repos names the string "KDE" appears.

    Thanks for your help, Joe

    Hm, no idea then.
    What are you actually doing exactly to delete tabs?

    There should be an entry "Close Worksheet" in the "File" menu. Is that not there? Does that not work?

    And one thing: the page you referenced talks about the KDE3 version of ksysguard. It's of course perfectly possible (and normal) if the KDE4 version does not offer all the (or exactly the same) functionality described there.

    Could you please be more specific about what you are missing?

    Hi wolfi323,

    actually the File menu of my System Monitor contains:

    New Tab
    Import Tab From File
    Download New Tabs
    Upload Current Tab
    Save Tab as ...
    Close Tab
    Monitor Remote Machine
    Quit


    and this was my mistake ... "Close tab" has replaced "Remove Worksheet", but sometimes one can't see the forest because of all the trees.

    Thanks again, Joe

    Ok, so this was the problem, and it works now as expected?

    Hm, in the german translation it is still called "Arbeitsblatt schließen" (i.e "Close Worksheet").
    But I ran it in english now and it is indeed "Close Tab", but it is also "New Tab" so that's actually consistent...
