Exactly like old gnome indicator: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/05/network-memory-and-cpu-usage-indicator.html#more Note from the link: Once installed, launch System Load Indicator from Dash. Unlike the old gnome applets, this is how to add those indicators to the panel.

I found the following question and answer that solved the problem for me. It contains a list of replacements for the old applets called application indicators.

Click the ...

It is no longer possible to use Gnome Panel 2 with 11.10 since Gnome 2 has been deprecated. You can use Gnome Panel 3, though. There are also several other panels to choose from. If you only want the taskbar, then I would recommend having a look at xfce4-panel since it works better with multiple screens and supports more plugins/applets. Lxpanel is also ...

I'm on 12.04, but this will work on 13.10 also. Yes, it is possible to change the indicators for the unity-greeter. We could use GSettings to modify the settings, but because the unity-greeter is only run by the lightdm user, (so it's settings doesn't affect anyone else) it is easiest to just write a .override file. 1. Check the default indicators You can ...

Run the following, apparently gnome3 stores configuration in binary form (I haven't read up on dconf enough to know where or why). sudo apt-get install dconf-tools Run: dconf-editor to edit the config.

I think you can't. Unity only shows notification area and indicators. So if you port their code to use indicator-applet, they will work.
