I have a 3G mobile broadband connection that keeps changing network speed according to location and time and so I relied heavily on this applet http://www.webupd8.org/2011/05/how-to-display-network-upload-download.html to monitor my netspeed and to choose a good location and time to download big files.
Now this applet doesn't seem to run on Ubuntu 14.04 anymore. I love this release and I don't want to relapse into previous releases for this. So I need an alternative to this one that displays netspeed in digits unlike indicator multiload! Any help would be appreciated.
I found this applet here https://github.com/mgedmin/indicator-netspeed and I added it to startup applications like this:
cd indicator-netspeed && make && ./indicator-netspeed
but it does not start and so i created a file with this content:
#!/bin/bash cd indicator-netspeed && make && ./indicator-netspeed
and added it to startup applications. Now it runs perfectly but it shows only download speed!
