Posted 06 December 2012 - 04:28

I screwed up. I created a Linux Mint 14 virtual machine on my more powerful machine and installed every desktop environment detected by my last patch for testing purposes. Although I tested the desktop environment dection aspect of the script fairly thoroughly, I didn't test the logos I added at all.

When I tested this script on my latop a few minutes ago, I discovered that the Debian logo didn't print correctly. Then I tested the other logos and discovered that some of them failed to print correctly too. Additionally, apparently the processor information in /proc/cpuinfo is not terribly similar between CPU architectures. It looks close to the same for most Intel and AMD CPUs, but it is completely different on the PowerPC and ARM CPUs that I tested. Therefore I wrote a new version of my previous patch that solves both of those issues.

The patch posted below was created against stats 0.8.1, not my previously patched version. The complete new version of the script is attached to this post.

cool i will have a look at this later

i really need to learn how to regex properly

i.e.
grep -E '([/][A-Za-z]+)*[/]{0,1}kdeinit')

might add a refresh function in there too so if you run the script using

./stats.sh -r

then it will run and refresh the info every 5 seconds or so

Regular expressions are very useful. The one you quoted is checking for any string containing kdeinit with an optional absolute path in front of it. Although regex is slightly different between the various tools/languages that implement it, it is mostly the same. My favourite regex reference page is here, but you should really read the grep man page for the specific implementation in grep.

PS: You are welcome to use the patched script I posted above as-is. I assigned copyright to you.

I noticed a couple posts up that you are considering adding command line switches to control the script's behavior. A good way to accept switches in basically any order or combination in BASH can be done using a switch case like in the code snippet below.

# Parse the given arguments.
while [ $# -gt 1 ]; do
	case $1 in
		--noverify)
			noverify=1
			;;
		--format)
			format=1
			;;
		--verbose|-v)
			verbose=1
			;;
		--help)
			usage
			exit 0
			;;
		*)
			echo "Invalid Argument -- $1"
			usage
			exit 1
			;;
	esac
	shift
done

# Get the action to take.
action="$1"
[ -z "$action" ] && action='default'

# Execute the function associated with that action.
eval $action

If you don't want to use an eval system or have any required arguments, check that $# is greater than 0 instead of 1 and don't use any of the code I posted after the loop exits. I hope that helps a little; I know I had trouble writing a good argument parser when I first started with BASH.

I know there are a lot of scripts out there to do this sort of thing on Linux, but I wanted to support another Neowin member so I have been using it. If you look at the screenshots I posted in this thread a couple days ago, you might notice that I used your script in the second one. Keep up the great work!
 

P.S. Haggis, if you get the point where you are very comfortable with the stability and features of your script, I am willing to contribute Debian packaging so you can provide .deb files for Debian and Ubuntu. This is an open offer. Don't hesitate to ask me, even if you don't reach that point for months.

Still using it but having to modify it a bit for Linux Mint 15.

 

The 'screenfetch' on Mint's forums lacks in appearances so I much prefer yours.

Detection for Cinnamon (Commented out DESKTOP_ENVIRONMENT line before the if..elseif)

Changed from ID to DISTRIB_ID to pick up Mint rather than Ubuntu

Some colour formatting for the mint logo

Changed import to gnome-screenshot as import doesn't handle transparency in Cinnamon and isn't a default package in Ubuntu/Mint

I had to install standard unix tools then run it via "bash stats.sh" to fix that as it defaults to dash for sh on Ubuntu.
