I can install the diskperf and add it to my panel, but it never detects any disk activity.
See https://launchpad.net/bugs/45921 for the more detailed report I raised in the ubuntu bug tracker.
Steps to Reproduce:
Same behaviour detected on Gentoo 2006.1 ( kernel: 2.6.17-gentoo-r7 ).
XFCE Version: 4.4 RC1 (188.8.131.52) - installed throught the gtk installer.
Download the plugin, compile it, add it to XFCE Panel, them mapped to my current ide disk (tryed to map to partitions too throught the configuration panel of the plugin, but doesn't worked also....)
I have monitores the /proc/diskstats and it is fine and updating correctly, the plugin isn't reading it properly, please change the title of this bug to:
"Diskperf plugin doesn't detect disk activity in Linux 2.6 kernels."
Also tested on a Debian Sarge environment, and on a Slackware environment, both with 2.6.x kernels and XFCE4.4-RC1. In both, the plugin did'nt work.

fixes this and two other issues
- the perf gathering init function was not called
- read config was done before GUI was setup so it crashed on panel restart
- changing of timeout did not take effect
this patch fixes these issues
Fixed in revision 2328.
