This week tutorial: What to do if procesor name is too long

This is well known issue with long name procesors, it will be fixed in KDE4 version, but don't worry you can modiffy.

Instructions:
  • First rename downloaded file from cmXyy.skz to cmXyy.zip
  • Unzip to new folder (it might be good something like cm_clock)
  • open cm.theme in kwrite (kate or something like that)
  • replace this line:
sensor=program program="cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep '^model name' | head -1 | sed -e 's/^.*: //' "
with this one:
value="processor name"
  • Of course enter short name of your processor :-)

Thanks goes to Rod who found this glitch and wrote me an e-mail.
