System monitor applet

This applet uses glibtop to get system resources usage statistics and displays them in graphs and also as text in tooltip.

All graph colors and sizes are configurable. Color settings support alpha channel, for ex. setting background alpha to 0 can make the background transparent.

Cinnamon settings API is used. All changes are applied on the fly and it is not necessary to restart the Cinnamon.

Installing glibtop

  • Ubuntu, Mint
    sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gtop-2.0
  • Fedora
    sudo dnf install libgtop2

Thanks for this applet. Just a FYI in case it helps others - I did need to restart Cinnamon in order to get the applet to work.

Hello guys. Im newbie in linux, just learning. I've installed the package as the instructions above, and i got this result. It returned a success installation, right? Why can't I find it on my start menu?: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done gir1.2-gtop-2.0 is already the newest version (2.38.0-2ubuntu0.18.04.1). The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required: libcpufreq0 Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 78 not upgraded.

This. And also would be nice to display text on the graphs with the current values. For example: current network downloaded/uploaded data.

Nice applet, but it sadly lacks a disk I/O monitor. Too bad.

What a wonderful utility to allow monitoring my computer at the blink of an eye. 'Tom Cloyd MS MA' was correct in his comment, and I can't say it any better. "After using this for a number of days, I can report complete satisfaction. I wanted to know about CPU load, RAM usage, and swap usage, most particularly - in real time, without having to open a window to find this information. This application gives me all this and more in a single quick glance, with detailed specifics if I mouseover. Well done!" I agree with his comment, 100%.
