0.14 - Usage indicator. Dutch/German translation (other translations are welcome). Removal of QSimpleRichText to render text (reduces memory usage).
0.13-pre1 - Small layout fixes. Compatibility with KDE < 3.4. (Could someone please test this?)
0.12 - Make the display more compact when Kicker's size allows it.
0.11 - Saving configuration for multiple instances, crash fix in KDirLister, clicking on the slider now changes the Refresh Interval.

Next to the applet - when you hover over - it is is a small arrow. Click on the arrow and press Configure Free
Disk space. This should give the configuration window.

Yes, thank you. I had disabled the dividers with the arrow. It would be nice if the config dialog also apears by pressing the right mouse button (context menu).

Great! That's something I always waited for. But I also think, that the applet occupies a lot of space in the taskbar. Maybe add something like a "compact display" feature? I'm using a 1280x1024 resolution and it really eats up a lot of desktop space.

This will be the next thing I'll be working on.

I wrote a little gentoo ebuild for this applet. You can download it here:

Have fun,
Lenz :)


P.S.: I like this app but I think it takes too much of the kicker's space. Perhaps you could add an option for selecting which partitions should be shown? In addition the possibility of showing the infos in several rows (if the kicker's size allows it) would be great.

For later versions, simply rename the .ebuild file in the archive, do a "ebuild diskfree-x.xx.ebuild digest" and run "emerge -u diskfree".
