#1 Postby xali » Wed May 17, 2017 7:25 am

it was made up for ubuntu , but now it is available for debian too as i see here https://github.com/oguzhaninan/Stacer

i would like to have your opinions and advices for safe use , if there is any issue with mx (probably with app cache perhaps? )

I skimmed its code & noted several references to "systemctl"; stacer apparently requires systemd, so will not run on a stock MX system.

I think it's just its system service manager that uses systemd, but all the other things it provides could be done with Bleachbit, Conky, or some other application. Cleaning out the apt cache can just be done with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get clean


Doing that doesn't do anything harmful if your system is sane, it just means that apt has to redownload the package if you want to reinstall it.

links here https://sourceforge.net/projects/stacer/ to download stacer as an appimage.
I'm curious to hear whether it successfully runs without systemd.
Maybe only the "monitor/toggle running services" screen will be unable to load?

I sort of remember installing the 64-bit deb package they provide a while back, and it started up to the GUI without problems, but I didn't have it do anything. I dimly remember that one of the widgets in the system monitor screen didn't work, but I could be wrong.

I tried the appimage version it looks nice tool unfortunately it doesn't work with MX15/16, but the most difficult part it is that it uses a lot cpu. For me even if it worked I wouldn't use for this reason.

A while back, I built and installed netinfo and had it monitor my own laptop as a test. It works fine, and displayed a multitude of information, but my browser used quite a few CPU cycles to render the javascript. I think it would be great for its intended purpose of monitoring remote machines--you can just try the demo to check on a few of them across the world.

@Stevo
Thanks for the info M8.
But I have no interest in these programs as I have to fun with conky and I get to learn a little about lua along the way.
I might have a Xeon but i use as if it was an I7 just as powerful and at the time was almost $100 cheaper....sorry lol..
I was just commenting on how they looked the almost the same..
