Have been using Ubuntu for about 2 weeks right now and I am in love with it. The only thing I was wondering if it is possible to view the percentage on a process in the terminal, sounds a bit vague but Ill explain it.
Every 2 days I am backing up my system by simply using the terminal. I know I can view my active services by simply typing "top". I notice that the service called gzip is currently active, which is (if I am not mistaken) the service needed for compressing the back up. I was wondering if I could select that service so that it shows me the approximate time needed and the percentage completed.
I don't know if it is possible, maybe that the service doesn't know the actual size of the back up being made or anything else, but I was simply wondering if there is something to monitor this. Could be coming handy for moving big files between HD's.
