EtherApe : A great visual network monitoring tool

EtherApe is a great tool to be able to visualize traffic on your network.
  • Install in Linux Mint or Ubuntu
$ apt-get -y install etherape
  • Create a simple Launch script (to launch with root)
$ cat ~/bin/
gksudo etherape
  • Set writable permissions (replace 'lclark' with your username)
$ chmod +x ~/bin/
  • Update launcher script line to match new script using sudo  :
$ grep Exec /usr/share/applications/etherape.desktop
  • Launch app using icon from Menu or launcher
Note -  As EtherApe runs as root use with caution when connected to the internet
