Known bugs and limitations
The following list provides information why this epplet is far
from being perfect.
analog PPP not supported (If you would like a version with
analog PPP support, please tell me)
the colors used for displaying the transfer rates (including
the background color) are currently not configurable (neither
in the config window nor in the config file)
not all existing config options are presented in the user interface
the epplet will probably never support other operating system
than Linux, unless someone volunteers to implement the missing
I hope the epplet is still useful to you.
Version 0.2 - 0.3
The transfer rate is now determined more precise. The
function can now cope with update rates different from integer
values. It also determines the actual time interval between
updates instead of the scheduled one.
Some internal values are reinitialized upon every connection.
Version 0.1 - 0.2
I now use the ioctl IIOCNETGPN to check for the connection.
It will work on kernels >= 2.2.12. If you need the old
version you must compile the package by yourself, I support the
old version too but in compilation step only.
I want to thank the following persons:
Martijn Pieterse and Antoine Nulle for creating wmppp which I used
for years. Both created a wonderful program.
Marcelo E. Magallon for providing the Debian package of wmppp.
Thomas Apel for modifying wmppp to support ISDN.
All the enlightenment guys for creating that window manager and
the epplet library.
The authors of E-Launch, E-CPU, and E-FancyLaucher for the
inspiration I got from reading their source code.
Wolfgang Rohdewald for pointing me a bit into the right
direction for checking the connection status. I should have
looked at the source of isdnctrl in the first place.
