Today, I’m pleased to announce a new version of indicator-sysmonitor.
edit – obvious typo in the headline version number 🙂
For the uninitiated…
Sysmonitor Indicator is an Ubuntu AppIndicator that can display the CPU, memory, swap, filesystem and network usage as values on the panel.
Furthermore, the AppIndicator comes with a very interesting feature: it can display the output of your own custom commands / bash scripts on the panel.
This one I particularly liked – a custom script to show if your internet connection is up or down – a happy or sad face:

This release has been updated to both GTK3 & Python3 – which in non-tech speak means that it uses the latest stable underpinnings rather than the old deprecated stuff that no-one maintains anymore.
I’ve taken the opportunity to further iron-out the more rough edges of the indicator since I took on the challenge when porting the original Ubuntu 12.10 version.
- Test button now displays error messages when incorrect sensor syntax is used
– Various english typos corrected
– fix various crash reports when incorrect sensor syntax is used
This release is for 14.04 and 14.10 users.
As always I’m always interested in any developers contributing to the project – fork and push on my GitHub project page.
