Gnome shell system monitor extension


Please see the alternate branches gnome-3.0 and gnome-3.2 if you are using an older version of gnome-shell.

It's recommended you install via the Gnome Shell Extensions website. However, before you do so, ensure you have the appropriate system packages installed.

On Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gtop-2.0 gir1.2-networkmanager-1.0

On Fedora:

$ sudo yum install --assumeyes libgtop2-devel NetworkManager-glib-devel

On openSUSE (Leap 42.1):

$ sudo zypper install gnome-shell-devel libgtop-devel libgtop-2_0-10

Then, visit extensions.gnome.org, preferrably in Firefox, and install by clicking the toggle button next to the extension's name. If the install was success, the toggle button should now show "ON".

If it failed, ensure you installed all the necessary dependencies, and that you granted the browser permission to install extensions when prompted. Additionally, try rebooting gnome-shell (Alt + F2 -> r).

Manual Install:

Download and extract the ZIP/Tarball, open a shell into its directory, and run:

make install

Alternately, if you plan on doing development on the extension, or testing modifications, it's advised you checkout the Git repository and install a symlink. First, install git if you don't have it: (sudo apt-get install git-core, sudo pacman -S git, etc), then run:

mkdir ~/git_projects
cd ~/git_projects
git clone git://github.com/paradoxxxzero/gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet.git    
mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
ln -s ~/git_projects/gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet/system-monitor@paradoxxx.zero.gmail.com
gnome-shell-extension-tool --enable-extension=system-monitor@paradoxxx.zero.gmail.com

And restart gnome-shell (Alt + F2 -> r) or reboot.



If we do not have the translation of your language and you want to translate by yourself, please make a fork, add your po/YOUR_LANG/system-monitor-applet.po file, and make a pull request.


To create a zip file with the specified version number, ready to upload to Gnome Shell Extensions or similar repository, run:

make zip-file VERSION=31
