XOSVIEW xosview is a program that gathers information from your operating system and displays it in graphical form. It attempts to show you in a quick glance an overview of how your system resources are being utilized. It can be configured to be nothing more than a small strip showing a couple of parameters on a desktop task bar. Or it can display dozens of meters and rolling graphical charts over your entire screen. Since xosview renders all graphics with core X11 drawing methods, you can run it on one machine and display it on another. This works even if your other host is an operating system not running an X server inside a virtual machine running on a physically different host. If you can connect to it on a network, then you can popup an xosview instance and monitor what is going on. * Current known working platforms: - Linux (tested on fedora-24 but almost anything should work) - Gnu Hurd (debian 3-25-2016 snapshot) - Solaris (tested on OpenIndiana hipster 2016.04) - NetBSD (7.0.1) - FreeBSD (10.3) - OpenBSD (6.0) - Dragonfly BSD (4.4.3) - cygwin (displayed stats are for windows) - minix (3.3.0 dev snapshot with X11) * To build xosview: In general, you should be able to build xosview by following these steps: ./configure make make install There are a few optional features you may be interested in. So, you may want to checkout 'configure --help' as it will show you options you can change such as the install prefix. These switches may be used to help locate optional (or required) libraries if the configure script is unable to do so by itself. The configure script will attempt to look for the xpm library to load background images with. It will also look for the Xft library for freetype2 font support. If it finds the SM/ICE libraries it will configure support for working as a session client. If configure fails to find any of these libraries and you wish to have the xosview features they depend on you may need to use your systems package manager to install "dev" packages for these libraries. Please see the README file for the platform you are building on for further details. Edit Makefile.config for your setup, if you wish to change anything from the default settings, such as the optimization flags. This of course, should be done before one runs make. * To run xosview : The binary should start up and run without any fuss after being built. If you give it a -h or --help command line option it will show a brief list of all the command line options. For more information (see the man page) The xosview binary contains a complete set of default options. It should run right out of the box from anywhere. But, it does search for other options in standard locations. See the man page for full details. Note: you can read the man page without installing it by running 'zcat xosview.1 | groff -lascii -mandoc - | less -R' or 'man ./xosview.1'. Please see the README file for your platform for any special instructions for running xosview on that platform. * To install xosview - short version: 'make install' - slightly longer version: The xosview configure script and makefile support Gnu conventions (https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Directory-Variables.html). So, controlling exactly where the 'make install' will put things can be done by using any one of those methods. By default configure will use a prefix of /usr/local you may want to change this by adding a --prefix argument when you run the script. One can run 'make -n install' to get a quick preview of what files will be installed and where. There are not many of them. Note: xosview will hard code a path to an app-defaults directory into the binary *at compile time*. This location is based on the prefix *at comiple time*. If you are later going to change this prefix (by say changing it when you run make install) then you can set the compiled in location with the configure option --with-app-defaults=DIR * To configure xosview Out of the box xosview will start up using it's default configuration of meter colors, fonts and values. It will also look for X resource values to override these defaults in the normal X locations. There are at least ten of these places and xosview checks them all (see the man page). The default configuration may not be to your taste. So, you can change one or more of the hundreds of options by setting an X resource (see the man page). The easiest way to do this is to add a file to your home directory called .Xdefaults (see the man page). It should be noted that xosview will read this file (if it exsists) even if your desktop environment failed to do so. So, it will always work. There are some alternative Xdefault "themes" you can try out as examples by loading them with the -c option (see the man page). If you come up with a nice set of options you would like to share with others please contact the developers on the sourceforge website. Stipple support: Also, NetBSD-mac68k people (and others) that have monochrome systems may want to try out the stipple code -- set the enableStipple resource to true, and choose black and white for the various fields. The fields are automatically stippled 100%, 75%, 50%, and 25% in a fixed fashion (future versions may allow the user to specify the stipple percentage). * To work with the source code as developer: See the file README.devel which contains details about git, autoconf gcc, makefiles and internal workings of the code.
