show numbers on the panel bar instead of graphs?

Asked by alex on 2014-07-25

I would like to see numbers and/or percentages on the panel bar instead of the graphs that show up. Is this possible?

Thanks, I really like the System Load indicator!

Hi alex,

This is possible (just use your scroll wheel on the indicator to see some examples). This can be configured in preferences->indicator items.

That said, it does not work as good as it should. Because of a long-standing bug in the appindicators, changes in the length of the text displayed will make the icons shift around. This is something that can be fixed I think (such as always showing numbers in a fixed format such as 0,00MB), but this hasn't been implemented.

The relevant bug reports are lp:848794 and lp:1348961


Can you help with this problem?
