Network speed indicator for Unity


sudo apt-get install build-essential libgtop2-dev libgtk-3-dev libappindicator3-dev git-core
git clone git://
cd indicator-netspeed
sudo make install
indicator-netspeed &

The indicator will be put left of all your other indicators. If this is undesirable, the ordering index can be changed in gsettings:/apps/indicators/netspeed (use dconf-editor).


  • Configuration options only accessible through dconf-editor, add a simple options menu.
  • Allow toggling autostart at login.
  • Do some magic when interfaces are added or disappear.
  • The Makefile is a bit stupid right now and is probably specific to ubuntu.
  • It's not packaged, create deb building scripts.
