its actually not a tar file since they can't be uploaded to OCN.

Newest version works sweet(gui mode), I did notice a typo in the readme

NOTE: Currently you don't need to install anything to run PerlMon,
assuming the dependencies are ment.

Can you give me some more info please. Like what version and if you tried text-mode.

Just wondering if you only tried to run it normally and it failed b/c the Gtk2 dependency wasn't ment, you can try to run it in text-mode and then it should work. (text-mode: perl perlmon --nogui).

The warning isn't from PerlMon, its from Perl.

This is exactly what I tried, the no gui mode (text).
perl perlmon -nogui
Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Gtk2.pm line 63.

None of it works:
perl perlmon -v
Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Gtk2.pm line 63.

perl -v

This is perl, v5.8.8 built for i386-linux-thread-multi

What version of PerlMon did you download though, 0.1.0 or 0.1.1.
If you don't remember, you can open the file "perlmon" and after the license info theres some lines that say use this, use that, and right after that theres a variable that holds the version number.

It looks like Gtk2-Perl isn't installed. There was a bug in version 0.1.0 and 0.1.0-2 where even if you ran it in text mode (where no GTK2 code is required) it would fail and not run if Gtk2 or Gtk2-perl was not installed.

In version 0.1.1, this should be fixed. I tested it on a system without Gtk2-Perl installed, and text mode will now work, it just throws out a warning that Gtk2.pm could not be found at the top of all the program output.

Are you sure that you have GTK2?
On my distro you also need gtk2-perl, but then you would get another error. But atleast see if you have these installed.
