Ubuntu – Download/upload speed indicator applet for 14.04


I need a net speed indicator applet for Ubuntu 14.04. In Ubuntu 12.04 I installed it as shown in: How to display network upload / download speed on the panel in Ubuntu, but this is not working in Ubuntu 14.04.

  • Indicator multiload has that and much more

    sudo apt-get install indicator-multiload

    to start it up:

    indicator-multiload &

    You can set it to print a graph for each category, you can set it to display text, or you can set it to display both.

    Categories include: CPU, memory, netspeed, swap, load, and disk IO speed.
