A ping tool that sits in your system tray

  • Saves your sanity when the wifi sucks
  • Doesn't clutter up your screen with ping windows
  • Lets you know when pings fail instead of silently failing
  • Currently for Ubuntu only
  • (Requires Python, GTK, and AppIndicator3)
  • Startup Automatically option creates a ~/.config/autostart/pinger.desktop file
  • Contributions welcome to expand to other OSes!

Usage (in Ubuntu):

Open the Terminal program and enter the following commands:

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/zyphlar/pinger.git
python pinger/pinger.py &

Pinger should open in your system tray. To set Pinger to start automatically (in Ubuntu) click it and choose Start Automatically.
