I have Cinnamon running on Debian 9. When applying this Desklet I get the following in glass.log:
error t=2017-09-01T18:24:26.186Z [Desklet "simple-system-monitor@ariel"]: Error importing desklet.js from simple-system-monitor@ariel
error t=2017-09-01T18:24:26.186Z Could not load desklet simple-system-monitor@ariel
error t=2017-09-01T18:31:18.186Z redeclaration of const NMClient
trace t=2017-09-01T18:31:18.186Z

Any ideas?

The problem is in `~/.local/share/cinnamon/desklets/simple-system-monitor\@ariel/desklet.js`
Edit this file an comment out or remove the last 3 `const` declarations of the code block on the top of the file:

//const GTop =;
//const NMClient =;
//const NetworkManager =;

Then the desklet will work. You may have to install some dependencies in addition, but the desklet will tell you.

The only difference this made was the last two lines from the above log no longer appears.

Agreed, this is a great desklet but it's crying out for config options to resize the window. I need mine just a little wider so I'm not looking at "Temperat...42 C" etc.

UPDATE: I was able to modify the size by manually editing stylesheet.css, although I needed to restart my system in order the the desklet to properly resize itself. I used a width of 150px and a border of 8px on each side for some good results with now "..."-ing of labels, although your personal mileage may vary.

This is really cool, I'm a sucker for stats, but for me the font on the text is too large to display all of the words, except for CPU & Upload. So "Memory" becomes "Memo...", and so on. Some way to adjust the size of the box, and/or the text size would be a nice addition.

Nice work though, this was a needed addition to the desklet repertoire.
