Hi "Palladini921",

It would help to know more about your system setup, like which edition and version of Linux Mint you are using. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

FYI: Use the "rimg" in a post or reply to have your remote image link show up. Similar to below.

Code: Select all

In my "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" for Linux Mint 18.2 there are both the vnstat and vnstati, but I think both are installed using the one command below.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install vnstat
Vnstati Download (DEB, RPM) eassy to install deb files
- click link below and then click Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial for Linux Mint 18.x and Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty for Linux Mint 17.x

https://pkgs.org/download/vnstati
OR
Ubuntu – Package Search Results -- vnstat
https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=vnstat
vnStat - a network traffic monitor for Linux and BSD

Hope this helps ...

I am running Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia Cinnamon.

I did run the sudo apt install, and then the command, it did something but the message remains on the screen. I have not yet done a restart, will do so right after posting this message

Hi "Palladini921",

If you are still having a problem, click the first link in my last reply in the "quote" box, download the "vnstat" and "vnstati" deb files for your version of Linux Mint, and double-click them to install them in that order.
Vnstati Download (DEB, RPM) easy to install deb files
- click link below and then click Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial for Linux Mint 18.x and Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty for Linux Mint 17.x

Hope this helps ...
