What Happened to My Computer Icon in 12.3?

Thanks

     Already done,  I do like the info on the desktop but just not as natural.  Yea the MyComputer name is windows like, But the function was nice.

Yes, that is Linux. By geeks, for geeks.
It works fine for mom and dad… if somebody else administers it.

Yes, I agree with you.

Guys, i have also added the my computer desktop file* in the package, just one needs to add it to desktop, or wherever s/he wants :slight_smile:

*It is at /usr/share/applications/kde4/my_Computer.desktop

Thank you!

Ditto…I loved this nice little app…it was super useful for examining disk space usage. I have also been using KInfoCenter for quite some time, but didn’t find it as quick or friendly for some stuff. Sad that My Computer is now kaput! :\

There is a reprieve for openSUSE 12.3 you can find below:

S.A.K.S.I. - SUSE Automated KDE Sysinfo Installer - Version 1.0.0 for openSUSE 12.3 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

It will likely not be there for openSUSE 13.1, so get it while you can.

Thank You,

Hm? It isn’t.
You just have to install it manually, see a few posts before how to do that.

Why not?
It is still in KDE:Extra, and builds fine for Factory and even KDE:Distro:Factory (KDE 4.11 Beta 2 atm).

Why not indeed. If you say it will be with us in openSUSE 13.1, then that is great. I have no such news myself and after all it was pulled from the standard 12.3 release. Many such things, claimed to be unmaintained, just die a slow death, but as one that wrote a small bash script to install it automatically, I obviously want to use it if it exists.

Thank You,

Well, of course I can’t guarantee you anything.

It was pulled from the official distribution because it was unmaintained and contained bugs.
That’s why it resides in KDE:Extra now and will stay there. You don’t think all stuff in KDE:Extra will die a slow death, do you?

As I said, it compiles fine atm for Factory and KDE 4.11, so I see no reason why it should be completely dropped (removing it would be more work than just keeping it in there :wink: ).
And I don’t really see a reason why it suddenly should fail to build in the 13.1 timeframe.

But if that should happen, I promise I’ll take care of it if necessary!:wink:

Excellent! Thank you!! BTW: Is there an ez-2-setup little app which will monitor the actual GHz for individual cores? I want to see if my FX is throttling cores. I mean, I know it is, but I want to make sure it’s doing it intelligently (not slowing down my CFD calculations).

Thanks!

One very simple example:

watch grep \"cpu MHz\" /proc/cpuinfo

See “man watch” for options (such as adjustment to the polling interval etc).

You could probably find something using RRDtool - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Notice that as this is a program (grep) that is started periodically,
the cpu load increases just a bit, which may push the throttle up.

Depending on the desktop used, there are applets that can display the
cpu state.

Try KDiskFree

I have a launcher for it in my bar so I can check in a flash before doing something that needs a lot of space.
