Graphical disk status:

gnome=>gdiskfree, diskuse-applet (docking applet), gtop also has a filesystems tab.

All these will work under KDE and X in general.

--- and about applets---

Greetings.

Gnome (and KDE, with a somwqht different twist) have the concept of dockable applets. Basically, they are applications that live in the taskbar, and ar analogous to the icons that windoze keeps in the System tray.

diskuse-applet is one of many you can find in gnome (other being battery life, a fortune-telling fish, volume control...)

So where do I get a hold of this applet, and how do I install them?

They come with gnome (on my RH6.1, at least). Kde applets are not tagged as such - some apps just install themselves in the tray as you launch them from the menu.

As for gnome, the way I launch the disk applet is:

'Gnome button'=>panel=>add applet=>monitors=>Disk Usage

I get a pie chart that loops through filesystems when I click on it.

Cheers,
