works in panther (kind of)

while menumeters works in panther, and your preferences for it stick, at startup/login you need to manually turn it on each time. this kind of sucks, but settings the menumeters pref pane as a startup item isn't too big of a hassle.

They know about this, and until a fix is issued, use the following workaround:

MenuMeters 1.1 has a bug on Panther that prevents it from working correctly if its installed to "/Users//Library/PreferencePanes" When installed to that location you will need to reenable the MenuMeters after every login (the settings do not properly persist across logout/login).

A fix for this is being developed and should be available in the next few days. In the meantime you can install to "/Library/PreferencePanes/" and MenuMeters will work properly.
Hope that helps.

I confirm it works flawlessly when installed in /Library/PreferencePanes/

I was a bit surprised when I read it didn't work in panther!

Lecter, Thanks for this hint. It drives me insane to switch it back on everytime I restart or log out. This pane is the best donationware utility for the mac ever.

I've had the same problem, but after moving the MenuMeters items around in the menu bar (holding down the commad-key and draging the items with the mouse), Panther remebered to load the MenuMeters during the next startup.
