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

Looks nice, appears to be accurate. Only problem I'm having is that, after I add a couple of extra mount points, I can no longer click on the widget - my mouse events go through to whatever's underneath. So, no dragging and no accessing the properties.

this bug is inherited from the original Disk usage screenlet, and I hope to fix it in v0.2.

For now, clicking the drive icon should work (it works for me).

Is it possible that when you click on disk icon, u actually open that drive's mount point ?
would give screenlet more functionality

Hmm, I should look into that. Maybe I can add it as an optional feature in v0.2.

Hmm, actually I could use such a feature myself, too. How come I never thought of that before? =)

Anyway, adding that to my To-Do list. =)

Merry christmas,

other things that would be very useful (imho):

+ how about other drive icons? or the ability to change it? i would like the gnome default icon
+ option for the background color of the bar
+ option to set the text strings (for other languages and so)

Great job, buddy!

I just find the indication of the used/free space is not immediately understandable, I mean at a very first glance. Ok, maybe it's just me.

I would change the text in something like:

14% of 50GB - (7/43)GB

where the % indicates the portion of used space (well related to the bar displayed below) and the rest gives you the absolute values of used/free space.

Well, it's just an idea...
Peace out.

Hmm, I guess I can add a formatting string for extra customization?

You need to install the Screenlets program for your Linux distribution first. I'm going to assume you're using Ubuntu, since most new Linux users are. You can install the Screenlets program in Accessories->Add/Remove. Once that's done, you download this file, rename it to DiskSpace.tar.gz, and then select it in Accessories->Screenlets->Install Screenlet. There's a problem with it though, see my next post.

 Missing package info

 by TristanSchmelcher on: Feb 18 2008

This screenlet seems to be missing a file needed to work with screenlets version 0.0.10, at least on Ubuntu Gutsy. To fix it you need to add a Screenlet.package file to the DiskSpace directory that contains this:

[Screenlet Package]
Desc=Shows disk space usage

After that it works fine.
