Heck yes I'd love to see them. I can't seem to write from scratch to save my life but I seem to scrap by pretty good from modding other's stuff if it's OK with you.
Of course that's okay for me, and you may even need to do that to get them working as you want them to, because they are a real mess, see below:
CPU frequency monitor: cpufreq.zip
However, you need to have cpufreq-utils running (and working, of course).. In order to be able to change the governor, you will also need to put this little shell script to /usr/local/bin/setgovernor:
if [ "$2" == "ondemand" ]; then
cpufreq-set -c "$1" -g "ondemand"
echo "100000" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/sampling_rate
echo "80" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
elif [ "$2" == "powersave" ]; then
cpufreq-set -c "$1" -g "powersave"
What this little script does is change the governor and set up some parameters. System default is 10000 for sampling_rate and 95 for up_threshold, but adjusting those values will decrease power consumption by a lot while (hopefully) not hititng the performance dramatically. Unfortunately the settings get lost when changing the governor for all CPU cores, so you'll need that script to take care of them.
You may also want to be able to run the script with sudo without needing to enter your password (or change the plasmoid to call kdesudo in case you got that working on your distro).
The sensor applet: cputemp.zip
This does require even more setup. You need to have lm_sensors set up and configured properly, or otherwise plasma's dataengine won't "know" about your sensors. And then you need a config file (I know plasma applets should have a config interface.. but I warned you), located in ~/.sensor-monitor, looking somewhat like this:
where the first string is the name of the actual sensor chipset and the second is the name of the actual sensor (get these from "sensors" output). The next two numbers are the lower and upper limits, and the third number is the number of decimal digits (anything >2 may cause trouble). Then there's the label text and the name of the unit, and finally, the name of the icon.
PS: How did you get CPU/system power governors working again? KDE scrapped them in 4.6 I think and even something like Jupiter doesn't work in KDE anymore.
What does KDE have to do with the governors? Anyway, cpufreq-utils works fine for me.

Which version of Wine are you running? Whenever I tried in the past I wasn't able to run a single game with it without major problems, and many don't even start (like, The Witcher doesn't go past the main menu).
By the way, nice desktop, but I don't really like the black font on a dark gray wallpaper. How can you read that?Edited by VikingGe - 8/5/12 at 3:11am
