    Flashing lights


    Mdk 9.1.

    Would like a little applet that sits in the taskbar and flashes when network traffic is present, sort of thing.

    Alternatively what's a nice desktop network/system monitor eye candy?

    if you have Gnome as your desktop you can put the System Monitor applet on the bar at the bottom of the screen (right click on the bar and then add... Then once you have the System Monitor right click on it and go into properties and add the network monitor).

    If you have KDE use the modem lights applet (again a right click and add a utility).

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    No modem lights cos kppp was missed of this installation disk (LXF41 DVD). I'll have a nose for it though.

    I think you can use gkrlemm (spelled right?) to display somewhat similiar graph's..

    If you're running KDE, KDevMon is nice, though I don't think it flashes in the toolbar so much as shows your bandwidth usage.
