Hello zigbert,
can Pwidgets (and conky?) be modified so that fan speed on ASUS Eee models can be displayed?
Forum member aarf reports that Pwidgets does not display the fan speed of the ASUS Eee -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=345604#345604
even when the suitable "eee" kernel module has been loaded to expose control of the fan.
This kernel module is packaged with my Eee hotkeys dotpets here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346451#346451

Once the eee module is installed, the fan speed can be read with
Code:
cat /proc/eee/fan_speed

in degrees Celsius, or
Code:
cat /proc/eee/fan_rpm

as revolutions per minute.

The "acpid" dotpet installs a fan control daemon as /usr/sbin/eee-fan-ctrl.sh
Since this daemon already controls the speed of the fan using this command
Code:
echo x > /proc/eee/fan_speed

maybe these commands could be piped to the Pwidget fan speed gui? This way, Pwidgets would not need to keep checking the fan speed, and any change in fan speed would be reflected in the gui immediately.

Doesn't the Conky variable "acpifan" report it back?

Hmmm, odd. I distinctly remember a slough of variables for the eee being anounced with Conky 1.7 and now I can't see any on the pages. Seems like they have been removed.

Version 2.1.0
See main post

This one is prepared for Puppy 4.3

Installed this on a clean frugal copy of 4.3 and in the Help>About it reports as 2.5.0 and the Calendar has a weird action in highlighting the current date - basically it gives a second instance of the date at the bottom right, with a leading zero e.g. 06 for today. Removed and installed 2.0.8 and problem is gone.

Did something get crossed up in the upload?

About-dialog shows 2.5.0:
You have probably earlier installed 2.5.0, and now 2.1.0. Since The version-check-function only checks for higher version-number, it fails here. Please edit /root/.pwidgets/pwidgetsrc - 2.5.0 --> 2.1.0

The calender widget is fixed for next release. It will work ok if today is 10-31. It only fails if today is 1 digit date. Only 3 days, and everything will work perfect Smile

The battery widget is built to not show anything on systems where battery driver is not loaded. Technically it checks whether the file /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0 exist (or BAT1, BAT2).

Does it help if you execute in terminal:
modprobe battery

.... and then apply the battery widget once more.

Negative on that attempt

The file /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0 exists and shows module present. JWM task bar shows battery info correctly. ACPI seems to work fine such as brightness keys, low battery beep, etc.

Tried modprobe battery and also modprobe -1 | grep acpi shows the modules including ac, battery, processor, thermal etc.

I made the Eee-pc widget which shows fan speed in rpm. Only useful if you have an Eee-pc.

(Sigmund, birthday widget is underdevelopment, I've been very busy with eee-pc stuff Smile )

I tested this on my Atom 1000HE; tempeature is reported as around 50degC and fan speed value is missing.

Hi jur, you need all tempestuous' dotpets for it to work, but be sure to get the right ones for your kernel. Look in the "Additional Software (PETS and stuff)" and search for "Extra drivers for 4.3 with k2.6.30.5" if you are running 4.3. Also be sure they are loaded, run "lsmod" and look for "eee".

Cheers

EDIT: Ahh, I see you've been to that thread, just make sure you have the right kernel. Check from terminal with the command "uname -r".
Does it display "0rpm"? If so it is working. The fan does not kick in until 54 c . Hope this helps.

Mick
You are doing a great job here these days......

craftybear
Next release with an updated calender widget will arrive before the next bug-period. Very Happy

omskates
It sounds like you're NOT a newbie. Could you please look inside /root/.pwidgets/configs/battery, and remove the 'if_exist /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0' code.


Sigmund
