I like to use conky:

 sudo apt install conky

Conky is a light weight system monitor that let’s you pick and choose system information and your own information and place it on the same window you can move anywhere:

My design is about four years out-of-date and not nearly as fancy as β€œmodern” conky scripts.


Ubuntu 18.04

It’s come to my attention some people (or everyone?) is having problems with conky under version 18.04. In which case I found this blog:

I had upgraded my 16.04 to 18.04 last year and don’t recall any problems with conky. That said I rarely use 18.04 and prefer the stability and comfort of 16.04.6 LTS.
