For those missing network applet. (This applies to Cinnamon- Fedora 17- 32 Bit and to default internet connection p17p1)

Go to Cinnamon setting>applets>Get New Applets.

Download Network Usage Monitor applet and extract contents to /home/user/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/

logout/login & activate applet by again going to Cinnamon setting>applets

Install vnstat by

sudo yum install vnstat

edit file applet.js by

sudo gedit /home/user/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/vnstat@linuxmint.com/applet.js

replace etho by p17p1 and save.

open gnome-session-properties by alt+f2 and type gnome-session-properties

create a new property say named vnstat with command sudo systemctl start vnstat

logout/login and you have your network Usage Monitor nicely sitting at bottom panel and giving you internet data statistics.


I think last instruction of adding it to gnome-session-properties was not necessary. Instead change eth0 to p17p1 in /etc/vnstat.conf
