I like seeing CPU load on my boxes, so pretty much all of them have some sort of CPU load gadget enabled on startup. I noticed every time I have to configure this on a Kali box I’m struggling to remember the package names for what I have to install, so having done it today I decided to do a write this so I don’t have to struggle next time.
It’s fairly simple, really:
gnome-shell-extension-system-monitorpackage (doesn’t require addition of PPA compared to
# apt update
# apt install gnome-shell-extension-system-monitor
- Open Tweaks (either find it in the menu under Applications -> Usual Applications -> System tools -> Preferences, or press the Windows key and type
tweaksto search for it).
- Select Extensions, enable
System-monitor, click on the gear and set your preferences.
