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.

  • What is not working? It is difficult to diagnose issues if you dont specify any error messages etc. Have a look here if you are having issues installing indicator-sysmonitor - askubuntu.com/a/453975/14356 – fossfreedom Apr 25 '14 at 9:02

    I recommend (and use) System Load Indicator, available in Software Centre. – david6 Apr 25 '14 at 11:38
  • How can I install it?@ david6 – opu 웃 Apr 25 '14 at 11:40
  • I had it installed (under 13.10), and it works well under 14.04 LTS. It is in Software Centre. – david6 Apr 25 '14 at 11:42
  • @ david6 , This software is working fine. But it is showing net speed through graph. How can I see net speed in digit?? – opu 웃 Apr 25 '14 at 11:53

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.

See this answer to get you started. Note that indicator-sysmonitor was forked and now works again in Ubuntu 14.04.

You'll have to modify the custom script to get network speed though, using perhaps this as a guide.

ANOTHER NETWORK SPEED UBUNTU APP INDICATOR.

install Dconf Editor:

sudo apt-get install dconf-editor

Then navigate to apps > indicators > netspeed-unity and change the settings to suit your needs. Note that changing some of the settings that are only available via Dconf Editor requires restarting the indicator to apply them.
