Any software to get live internet speed on top taskbar?

I have used zorin os for 3 months and then shifted to garuda and i find it much better looking and faster. But the only thing im missing is I used to have a gnome extension to show live internet speed in the taskbar. I was wondering if there is same for garuda taskbar on top.


A simple google search would have sufficed.
Please dont expect spoonfeeding for such simple things.
On the top panel, click the wifi/ethernet icon and expand the current connection.

If it doesn't exist on google, no one would know. Every one of us has learnt stuff from the internet and if its on the internet its on google.
If you would have searched correctly you would have found it
"how to display computer stats on screen"
'what is conky"
"how to install conky"
"live internet speed displayer for conky"

Arch requires dedication.

Like this?


But we do not know what DE you use.
It would be much easier if the questioners would just follow the template and post the output of inxi -Faz along with the question.

Use DuckDuckGo, whoogle, searx, ...


I use dragonised version so i think its kde and

And i was thinking more like on the top panel besides time
