Band Width display Icon - Mint Linux 17

Postby Muzman65 on Sat Aug 23, 2014 8:04 am

Good Day,

I am using wi-fi with the above distro , as a past windows user I am really impressed with Mint Linux.
One question is there a simple applet that a newbie like myself could install so you can either hover over
or click on that automatically starts on system boot to show Data used , Sent , Received ... ?
Once again Many Thanks in advance,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

use BitMeter OS - which you can get as a *.deb
- install that.
