Just a quick update … after scratching my head for several days wondering why my debian package refused to work, finally solved it. Learned a lot on how to do correct packaging. Will use that knowledge when I come to update some of my other PPAs.
So what’s new visually … nothing. That’s right – I’ve released something that is visually no different than before. That should be a good thing 😀
What is actually different is the underlying plumbing. It has been completely restructured and this makes the whole project fundamentally easier to understand and most crucially maintain. Heck – if you feel like hacking and adding more sensors – it should be really easy now.
All sensors live in one source module – sensors.py. every sensor is its own python class – so no issues with changing code and breaking other sensors.
Preferences is in another module and the overall indicator is also in its own module. I did say logical!
A couple of bug fixes from other contributors – cheers.
How to install:
If you are using my PPA then just update as usual (trusty, utopic – and brand new vivid). Otherwise, if new …
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fossfreedom/indicator-sysmonitor
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-sysmonitor
Alternatively – wizz over to my GitHub project and look around at the code – use the README instructions to install
Update 26/04/15: v0.6.2 release – fixes crash on adding custom indicator
