Display IP address in panel ubuntu

Ask Ubuntu Asked on December 8, 2020

I need to display my ip address in my ubuntu panel and it’s doable when you install giplet, but from what I understand, giplet is no longer supported by GNOME3.

Is there another way to display my ip address in the panel shown below?

I’m using ubuntu mate release 16.04.3 LTS

or some scripting.

To add applet to MATE Panel you need to do right mouse click on top or bottom MATE Panel and then select Add to Panel menu item:

Add to Panel, Command

To install the applet use sudo apt-get install mate-applets .
