Ubuntu Unity netspeed indicator

One of my favorite applets in gnome is netspeed which of course wont work in unity (damn you, unity). But using the indicator version of sysmon, dstat (cool tool – check it out if you haven’t already) and some bash magic you can get something similar to work anyways.

The above link explains everything needed and you’ll end up with your netspeed being displayed in the panel . . .
