  • Any alternatives to Gnome extensions to display CPU load and such?
    That doesn't always give correct readings depending on the chipset on your MB. There was a driver missing for like IT87 that returned voltage and temps to psensor. I finally gave up trying. gkrellm can monitor cpu, and many other things. You can add what you want. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • sysinfo-gui: A gui app based on sysinfo
    Gkrellm was not really part of GNOME or KDE, but it was one of the best tools and there was recently talk about porting it to modern GTK releases. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • New to mint, i really dont like system monitor so what is a good alternative.
    OP: Another option is GKrellM. It has not been updated in a couple of years, but it still appears in Software Manager. It should work with the current versions of LM. I used it for a while on LM 17.2 because I wanted a desktop system monitor and I was too lazy to mess with Conky - I stopped using it when I moved to LM 18.1 and eliminated eye candy.

  • The Desktop customizations I want.
    I close both pager boxes and run gkrellm with the invisible theme as a monitor. This is excellent on old (or any) system. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Useful software nobody told you about
    Gkrellm with the invisible skin (or you can easily make your own) skins here (search ALL is easiest). - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Is there any good device monitoring tools?
    GKrellM is another option. It definitely supports GPU temp & fan speed, but you'll have to dig in the setting to enable it. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • dual booting windows and manjaro on separate drives
    My favorite is Slackware or Fedora, then run gkrellm on your linux system to keep an eye on all the things and your productivity will fly. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • Help, my ubuntu to start is sooo slow, like 1 min and half, with windows was like 30 seconds
    Result was sub 10 seconds from completely OFF, fast post, autologged in generic user, auto-start gkrellm and eterm to run a sandbox to load a browser (firefox) and less then 10 seconds. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
  • I have an older water cooler on my CPU and would like a simple overlay to show me what my CPU and GPU temps are (maybe other things, too, but for now that will do). Help?
    Once you have it working, there are a few common desktop applets, like gkrellm or conky. Probably others, but those two have been around for ages. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
