My Software


New member
A few month ago i bought a 20x4 crystalfontz lcd. Now I am proud to present my software for Win2k (and some 98/ME). I am not at the end with my coding, but it's worth to look at it (I think).
The current version works with an universal LCD driver, that supports a lot of varoius LCDs, but I think a crystalfontz is the best for the job.
My programm shows a lot of screens on the LCD. The order of the screens is universal configurable.
*CPU usage, time, uptime
*free disk space
*Network/Internetstatistics (IP, Up/download -total -per sec)
*user defined text
*Winamp infos
*MotherboardMonitor 5 readouts (temperatures, fans and voltages coming soon)

If you are interested on the software, you can download it at
(This is not a final Version, only a fine beta :rolleyes: )
-For more infos about the driver and limitations read my readme.txt (only german).

Here is pictures of my current build:

Any chance you doing that for Linux / open-source? or Does anyone have any reference of programming this thing so that I know I could do it in Linux before I go ahead and get one? Thanks.

I happen to know that a lot of people from the forums, where LCDriver originated, have uploaded their programs to a community site, LCDomain - maybe you should upload it there too, since it's better than any of the other work I've seen yet:

(I'm trying to get Dexter, the organizer, to change the colorscheme - it hurts my eyes :( )

LCDriver v2.0 is going out pretty soon to the LCD manufacturers and a very small group to test the driver core, while I finish up the apps. There are now about five or six different ways to access it - one of them is an API nearly exactly the same as v1.1, except with a "display id" you have to include with each function call as the first parameter. (The others include a lcdproc-compatible TCP/IP socket, Windows HWND messages, and shared memory spaces)

Again, wonderful work - I haven't seen anything of this quality since I released it, it's glad to see some truly skilled authors working with LCDriver :)

another way to create user interface

Take a look at the following link and it may be able to assist in your user interface requirements. It's basically using an HTML editor to rapidly develop a GUI.

that looks like a complete kit, lcd and software, and its a graphical lcd which CF dont offer yet... but none the less a good read :)
