Particle Spraying CPU meter is an applet for the KDE taskbar kicker displays the CPU activity by sparying animated particles into the small applet window.
The amount of particles corresponds to the current CPU activity while the amount of elements bouncing in the window can be considered to reflect the usage history of the past few seconds.
The particles bounce back from the borders for a while before disappearing.
./configure --prefix=/usr/kde/3.5 # or correct path
make install # as root
Hope you have tons of fun with the applet.
