Description John Veness (reporter) 2010-10-30 22:53:45 UTC
Currently cpumem-applet is very minimalist, just the two bars appearing in the
status area. However, it is so minimalist that it can be hard to use. For
example, it is not obvious which bar indicates what.

I suggest the following:

Add some widgets into the status area menu (the thing that appears when you
click in the status area), showing the two bars in larger detail, labelled CPU
and Mem as appropriate. Especially if they can be animated, the user should be
able to associate these bars with the small bars in the status area itself. You
could even show little graphs here.

It would also be nice if the user could click on these widgets to bring up an
app or a dialogue box, to allow them to change settings (e.g. colours, or
disable one or other bar), and to see an About box or Help info.
