How to update Socket Sentry (KDE 4) to run on Mageia 6?

Postby macxi » Nov 9th, '17, 19:26

Hi,

The Socket Sentry KDE Plasma widget (KDE 4) not work on Mageia 6, KDE Plasma 5.

There is a package for mageia 5, which runs on KDE4, but there is no package to run on Mageia 6 on KDE Plasma 5.

How to update Socket Sentry KDE Plasma to run on Mageia 6?

Is there other software that can replace the same function as Socket Sentry?

    plasma-applet-socketsentry-0.9.3-6.mga5.i586.rpm ---> Socket Sentry is a KDE Plasma widget that displays real-time network traffic on your Linux computer.

I believe you basically already got the answer resulting in your comment: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=370296#c3

For the other question, if there are applets that show the network traffic, seems like there are:

Hello doktor5000,
Thank you for answering me.
I sent an email to Rob Hasselbaum, software developer socketsentry, and he replied that he does not have time to port the socketsentry to KDE Plama 5, but that the software is on GitHub and is available for contributions from anyone who wants help.
As I am not a developer, I invite anyone who has knowledge in this area to help make this software socketsentry available for KDE Plasma 5 and Mageia 6. :)


Below is a copy of the message I received from Rob Hasselbaum today:
