gdesklets how does it run on your system?

Hey fellas i'm just after some feedbackfrom those whom have gdesklets running on their ystem? what are your specs and is it smooth as i heard it eats up a lot of resources and may slow the computer down a bit? i'm planning on installing gdesklets to spice up my desktop a little bit.

My specs are
P4 2.6Ghz
512 RAM (adding another 512RAM soon)
Radeon 9600xt
Abit IS7-E motherboard
80gb sata HD
120gb sata HD
Running KDE at the moment

Any feedback or thoughts are welcome.

i used gdesklets for a while and even though i have 1gb of ram it i felt it was just eating to much ram so i switch to a lightweight here and if you are using fc2 you will need this packages from dag

Well I have had no problems installed on one of my machines. I use that machine once a week and seems fine. A little performance loss, but not truly noticable on the hardware configuration (similar to yours, except 1gb ram)

Thumbs down

Well, if you are running kde, use karamba/super-karamba. Thats equivalent to gdesklets. In any case, both karamba and gdesklets does take up a lot of your cpu/memory

I've tried them both a few times and gave up since "x" usage of memory goes up by few percentage and cpu is never more than 75-85 % idle. Oh wait.. I'm on an ancient 1GHz PIII/256MB.

Just my $0.02..

Yeh i was previously using gkrellm on my old HD which made my system abit slow so i decided to chuck linux on a another SATA HD and upgraded to the lastest kernel 2.6.8-1 which for some reason it felt abit faster then the previous kernel 4.6.7 .

Doesn't gkrellm allready come with fc2 when you do a fresh install? what desktop manager are you using imdeemvp? I'm using torsmo atm which is la very light monitoring program.

ahhh i see

i might be abit different, because i did a install with everything from the cd's and if you looked in system tools you will find it. On the other hand i guess gdesklets is a no go from the linux community
