System load indicator (indicator-multiload) starts only in system tray part of the panel. Therefore, having more than one monitor/meters (e.g. CPU, network) will only occupy the space of a single meter/monitor. So adding more meters just get smaller and smaller. Can someone please tell me how to move system loader indicator outside of the system tray panel, and into the general applet part of the panel? I am using LXDE/Openbox desktop manager (see system details below).

OS: -Version- Kernel : Linux 3.2.0-38-generic (i686) Compiled : #61-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 19 12:20:02 UTC 2013 Distribution : Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS -Current Session- Desktop Environment : LXDE (Lubuntu)

System loader version: 0.2
