The fact that it has GPU graph already makes it better than other tools.

[-] ThetaDev@lemmy.fmhy.ml 13 points 11 months ago

KDE Sytem monitor has that function, too. You just have to add it to the history page (Sensors/GPU/Usage)

[-] DudeWithaTwist@lemmy.world 52 points 11 months ago

Task manager is one of the few Windows apps that works really well. Glad to see the design making it's way to Linux.

[-] unionagainstdhmo@aussie.zone 18 points 11 months ago

That and paint are the two things I miss moving from Windows

[-] fantasy95@lemmy.world 17 points 11 months ago

Paint is especially surprising to miss, but yeah. I tried a few different image editing programs on Linux but they were all either too limited in scope or were too complex to quickly learn.

[-] JetpackJackson@lemmy.ml 9 points 11 months ago

Try Pinta! It's pretty nice and minimal!

[-] c0mbatbag3l@lemmy.world 5 points 11 months ago

I've just been using libre office draw but if anyone has a better alternative I'd love to hear it.

[-] unionagainstdhmo@aussie.zone 3 points 11 months ago

Yeah I've just been slowly learning GIMP but nothing comes close to paint

What about KolourPaint?

[-] nandeEbisu@lemmy.ml 5 points 11 months ago* (last edited 11 months ago)

ps, top, and kill along with GIMP aren't good enough?

I do like the pretty charts though so I can see how close my GPU is to melting.

[-] 4am@lemmy.world 13 points 11 months ago

GIMP is great but sometimes you don’t need a woodworking shop, you need a butter knife.

[-] angstylittlecatboy@reddthat.com 6 points 11 months ago* (last edited 11 months ago)

GIMP is way too complicated for what MS Paint gets used for, I'd easily argue it's harder to use than Photoshop.

Paint Dot Net is a happy medium but that's also Windows only IIRC

Thank you. Although I'm sticking to btop, it's nice to have the option.

I think it's cool. The Windows Task Manager is not bad IMO

[-] aski3252@lemmy.ml 19 points 11 months ago

Well it's not bad in theory, it just runs like ass.. This version already runs 10 times faster than the real thing, sometimes I wonder what the hell is going on over at Microsoft.

[-] 1rre@discuss.tchncs.de 18 points 11 months ago

Thing is when your system is dying and nothing is responding, you can almost always trust task manager to respond because of its privileges, simplicity and the fact it's built into the OS rather than using APIs, even if explorer.exe crashes.

Given there's no "ctrl-alt-f2: Imma go fix this mess" on Windows, having at least something you can rely on to not die is super valuable even if it is bad.

I'm not saying this tool isn't better for system monitoring (but I would like to see something like KSysGuard), just that Microsoft absolutely shouldn't touch task manager to fix whatever's wrong with it's resource usage monitoring functionality to avoid breaking something else in it

The Windows task manager only refreshes at a certain interval. Holding F5 will make it refresh as fast as it can.

I literally whispered "why?" to myself. Re-Write windows in rust! LMAO

[-] gabriele97@lemmy.g97.top 12 points 11 months ago

Guys do you have a memory leak? When it is open, it consumes around 200 MB of RAM. After a while it reaches 800 MB

[-] mst@lemmy.ml 6 points 11 months ago

How long is "a while"? I've had it open for around 30 minutes now and I'm not seeing what you're describing. Around the 15 minute mark I also tried clicking through various tabs, performing some actions, etc. and memory usage is still staying steady at 247MiB.

[-] teawrecks@sopuli.xyz 8 points 11 months ago

Eh, what is it doing that requires 200MB+ memory?

[-] mst@lemmy.ml 4 points 11 months ago

That is a very good question. Short answer: I don't know as I am not familiar with the project.

I have had a brief look at the issue tracker and it doesn't seem to be mentioned on there. Perhaps I will raise an issue later when I am at my computer (or if anyone else beats me to it then please feel free).

Oh wow, this is really nice. I was using System Monitoring Center but this is so much nicer. My only complaint is no CPU temperature display but that's not a huge loss.

Windows had 2 pieces of software that didn't have a better alternative in Linux, now I just gotta find something like Notepad++ and I'm good.

[-] netvor@lemmy.world 11 points 11 months ago

Looks good. Anyone knows if there are .deb's somewhere?

TBH, I'm not likely to use flatpak untill I absolutely have to, and with $meta+= exec htop in my .i3/config I'm not exactly the primary audience.

(By the way, that's nothing against the author's decision to go "flatpak first", I fully support whatever choice they make as long as the project is F/LOSS. I don't have the resources to help so I'm happy to wait until the project grows enough until the deb appears..)

[-] ryncewynd@lemmy.world 6 points 11 months ago

What is wrong with flat pack? I heard they were good

(noob question probably)

Cool, one of the few things I miss from Windows.

[-] monotrox@discuss.tchncs.de 8 points 11 months ago

I feel like the design of this fits better with the gnome desktop than gnome system monitor

[-] oldfart@lemm.ee 6 points 11 months ago

Imagine launching a flatpak when your computer is already overloaded 💀

[-] Lalelul@feddit.de 5 points 11 months ago

Are flatpaks really that bad? Why would they even require more resources?

Haha this is fun project. Youtuber 'Dave's Garage' spend years with annual six figures to create this tool.

[-] zephyr@lemmy.world 5 points 11 months ago

Nice. I was looking for some GUI helper in Linux similar to Device Manager

[-] ikidd@lemmy.world 5 points 11 months ago

And here I would always immediately replace it with Process Explorer back when I still had to use Windows.

Got this setup and running on my Steam Deck. Really really cool. Love how clean it looks.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
