GKrellM is a small window that sits in the corner of your screen and tells you how hard your computer is working. It can also monitor other things, like your email and the weather. It’s small, it’s awesome, and it’s only available for Linux.
If you want the original GKrellM, download & install the following:
- GTK compatibility layer
- GTK Windows theme; instructions how to install it here (scroll to bottom of page).
Note - plugins must be installed here:
C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAME.gkrellm2plugins
If you’re smart enough to use Linux, all you have to do is:
sudo apt-get install gkrellm
The original GKrellM web site, along with lots of skins, can be found here. (Hint:
for file in *.tar.gz; do tar -xvvzf "$file"; done )
Thanks to Bill Nalen for letting me host his software.
