Disk Space Screenlet

Disk Space Screenlet

Link:  Link
Downloads:  43767
Submitted:  Nov 29 2007
Updated:  Feb 28 2009


A screenlet that displays free/used space information for selected hard drives, based on the Disk Usage Screenlet by Helder Fraga (aka Whise), which is in turn based on the Disk screenlet by Jonathan Rauprich.

This screenlet adds quite a few new features on top of the original Disk Usage sceenlet. These are:

* Ability to customize colors (it uses two colors, one for when disk usage is above a certain threshold, and one for when disk usage is above the threshold)
* Ability to change the aforementioned threshold value
* Ability to monitor more than one drive using one screenlet (i.e. no need to use 4 screenlets for 4 drives)
* Ability to enter device names (e.g. /dev/sda1) instead of mount points

I've also changed a few features of the Disk Usage screenlet:

* Changed the drive icon with the default drive icon from the Ubuntu Human theme
* The default theme is based on the 'cristal' theme for the original screenlet.
* I moved some stuff around in the interface

Planned features for v0.7

* The ability to customize drive nicknames. For now, the last part of the mount point is displayed (i.e. Dallas for /media/Dallas)
* The ability to use drive icons from the user's icon theme.


* Major code cleanup, fixing some glitches caused by legacy code.

* NFS (and possibly SAMBA) support
* New themes

* Solved the non-updating screenlet problem
* Added package information so the screenlet installs properly now

* Option added to stack drives horizontally

* Drives now show up in the order they are entered in preferences
* The screenlet now updates its shape properly, so dragging works
* Clicking on drive icons to open the drive in Nautilus has been added as an option

This doesnt work, i get this error when trying to install on gDesklets.

"Installation failed

The package could not be installed because it contained no installable files."

Whats even worst there are no instructions on how to install it. Waste of time.

 No NFS mounts

NFS mountpoints dont seem to work with this screenlet. I used to use conky where it was no problem.

Could you add the function so that even NFS and SAMBA mount points can be displayed and evalued?

 Universal Applets Extras

I love the screenlet. I'd like to move it into the Universal Applets Extras branch to replace Whise's old version of the screenlet. (We're trying to round up all applets and place them on bzr in UA-Extras.)

If you're interested, I'll need your launchpad username to add you to the team so that you can commit directly to bzr.

Please see [url=http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?t=8616&highlight=extras]this[/url] and [url=http://forum.compiz-fusion.org/showthread.php?t=8500&highlight=developer]this[/url] for more information. (The first link is slightly outdated.)

The drive icon is part of the theme, so you'd have to replace drive.svg in $HOME/.screenlets/DiskSpace/themes/default

However, the included SVG file is quite big, so your new icon might look much smaller when resized.

I want to change the screenlet so that it fetches the correct drive icons from the user's theme/drives, but for now, changing the theme is the only way.

 uses too much cpu

good idea, but it kinda uses too much CPU. Occasionally it bursts to 30%

Hey, I just wanted to thank you for creating this screenlet. I've been using it for several months now and is has performed flawlessly, which is rare for many third-party apps out there. Its much more stable than many other screenlets I've tried and I have NEVER experienced any issues/flaws/bugs whatsoever. The only suggestions that I could make to enhance this screenlet's capabilities is to allow for nicknames on the mount points (For instance instead of me having "/" "Windows" and "Secondary" it would be nice to label then as "Linux" "Windows" "Shared Files". Further, it would be nice if it could save what the last reported percent usage so that some may be able to dismount partitions and still know its usage. Thanks again!
