What about a taskbar applet to show the remaining free ram?

what you want is "xfce4-genmon-plugin" (usm -g xfce4-genmon-plugin), pointed at(put it where-ever) a script like this:
call it "mem.sh" (or whatever you want)
Code: Select all
#/bin/bash
free -h | grep Mem | cut -c 36-45

Yes this can be done. But probably not for this next release. I can push it as an update when I get time. It will take em a couple of hours to write this in since there are many options.

Sorry it's a big ask , I didn't realize it would be a couple of hours to re-write , in my ignorance i thought the script option could be pointed to the /tmp folder to search for the firefox.tar to use rather than the online URL address and then could use the rest of the script as normal.

That wouldn't take so long but I was thinking of writing something that allows users to choose a version they want instead of just the latest.
