I would like to know in one glance the value of some stocks and currencies. What kind of indicator would you advice to me?

I guess an equivalent of indicators, like a widget or whatever, should be fine too. I remember there was such a possibility on older versions of Ubuntu with GNOME 2, with a notification icon.

    I disagree - this is not too localized. Please re-open. – Nathan J.B. May 20 '13 at 17:24

    Take a look at indicator-stocks. – sergej Nov 23 '13 at 14:59

    Indicator-stocks does the job, thank you for developing it! – Agmenor Nov 24 '13 at 21:07

    IMO, @NathanJ.Brauer is right. We should reopen this, and make an answer from the comment that currently answers this question. Then this will better help others, and it will be one less "too localized" question for high-rep users to sift through when deciding which closed questions merit deletion. – Eliah Kagan Mar 15 '14 at 23:54

    @Braiam That's true, they do. Sorry if what I said had the effect of suggesting otherwise. However, they don't come up on the front page of our site very often. And I think being closed with "no answers" makes it harder for people to recognize that there is actually a solution here. Furthermore, when a question is on-topic, there's no requirement that it be of interest to a large fraction of the community. Back when we had the "too localized" close reason, its correct use was for questions that would probably never be relevant to anyone else (or, for time-localized questions, ever again). – Eliah Kagan Mar 16 '14 at 3:54

As the OP pointed in his comment, indicator-stocks does the job. To install it, run the following commands in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ce3a/indicator-stocks
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-stocks
