Projects / powermated


powermated is a program for controlling X applications and command line programs, and for monitoring various aspects of your computer with the Griffin PowerMate USB dial. It can update the PowerMate's LED based on different system monitors (such as CPU usage, XMMS/BMP sound output, and system mixer volume). It also has XOSD support for nifty on screen status displays.
