This was a little application I made really because I was bored. At the time I was tweaking my Linux machine to run games as well as I could, and often you had to edit video driver settings for each game to make it run right. So I made this little icon dock so I could easy launch the settings and monitor my GPU temperature. I had no idea it was going to become so popular as to even make it into the distributions of other distros.
Hover over it and it will tell you your GPU temperature if your card is into that kind of thing. A double click will launch the NVIDIA settings control panel, and right click will bring up a nifty menu with a few options. Also on the menu it will show the NVIDIA driver version, which is surely to come in handy at least one time in your life.
NVDock is written in C, and uses the GtkStatusIcon functionality which if my memory serves me correct, requires GTK 2.10 or newer. Obviously it also requires that your window manager has a system tray… most do anymore.
