System Monitor Applet in XFCE

Postby Orbital_sFear on Thu Mar 01, 2012 11:32 pm

One of my favorite applets is a system monitor which shows you CPU, Memory, and Network Usage over time. I feel this is key to monitoring overall system health. XFCE4 has conky, but I really wasn't happy with it.

After much searching I finally figured out how to setup the gnome system monitor applet on my panel:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-system-monitor gnome-panel

Although you may not need to, I had to reboot before I could see the new applets.

Add a panel, Xfapplet.
Move it to where you'll want system monitor to be first.
Rigth click on the panel -> proporites -> System Monitor.
Now you can right click on system monitor and add whatever features you wish.
