How to place system monitor on desktop ?


Was just looking at the cool screenshots in another post soliciting same. I would like to know how one places the system monitor and other tools on the desktop/wallpaper. I am getting the impression that it is a gKrellm? but not sure where to begin. VERY COOL.

Cheers

Yes, it's gKrellm. There are redhat 8.0 rpm binaries on rpmfind, and skins available from the gKrellm site. Enjoy.

I just noticed that my gKrellm monitor is no longer on the desktop. I recently set a desktop background using a pic I took at Bronx Zoo. I'm not sure if the gKrellm monitor disappeared at that time or if it had disappeared prior. Can anyone remind me how to have it on the desktop by default, please?

Currently, I am firing it up using a command line, but it used to be there by default.

Kind regards,
TAH

if you had it open in a previous session and didnt close it, then logout properly it will be there as part of the restored session the next time you login, no need to open it every time
