Plugins

  • Stopwatch. Provides dual timers, each of which may be set to stopwatch mode or countdown mode.
  • G15Daemon. Available only on the G19, this is a network server compatible with the g15daemon protocol. This allows you to use g15daemon compatible scripts and applications on a G19 such as g15stats, g15composer, mumble, etc.
  • Processes. Lists all running processes and allows you to kill them. You may switch between running applications, user processes or all processes.
  • LCDBiff. POP3/IMAP email checker. An alternative to the Indicator Messages plugin if your system does not use indicators. Supports multiple accounts, SSL, displays summary of total unread emails in each account.
  • Menu. Displays list of available screens and allows selection. Activated by the MENU key on the G19, or L2 on the G15.
  • Impulse15. Port of the Impulse screenlet and desktop widget. Adds a spectrum analyser.
  • Panel. Reserves an area at the bottom of the LCD for other plugins to add miniature components that are always available.
  • Clock. Simple demonstration plugin.
  • Cairo Clock. For the G19 only, a port of MacSlow’s Cairo Clock. It renders any Cairo Clock theme on the LCD.
  • Notify LCD. A notify-osd replacement for notifications. NOTE, this plugin currently tries to kill the ‘notify-osd’ process and take over notifications before notify-osd can restart. This doesn’t always work. I will look for a better solution, but in the mean time, try killing your notification daemon manually before starting this plugin.
  • Calendar. Integrates with Evolution to show a highlighted month calendar, and todays events. You can scroll though the calendar using the extended keys.
  • RSS reader. Supports multiple feeds and formats.
  • Screensaver. Detects when screensaver becomes active and dims the keyboard and displays a message. Warn off your foes!

  • Media Player. GStreamer based audion and video player. Supports visualisations, webcams, audio monitor and more.
  • Special effect. Adds effects for cycling through screens, a slide effect and a fade effect. Due to the nature of the G15 monochrome LCD, the fade effect is more of a ‘disolve’, but it’s quite cool anyway 🙂
