Occasionally I want to find out the strength of the Wifi signal being received.

Via a terminal, without the quotes: "watch -n 1 cat /proc/net/wireless"

will generate the information among others (couldn't be cut & pasted) regrading Quality: Link, 48; Level, -61; noise, 256. The read-outs of Link and Level change slightly (up or down) about every second. The "Level" read-out corresponds to the number displayed if "Setup networking" is called started via the launcher on the taskbar.

How to make use of that information in its own taskbar launcher?

Thanks, disciple. I'll see what I can do with the information when I get a chance. But especially thanks as I would never have found the thread. I think of "icons" as being a graphic. I would have searched in vain for a taskbar "launcher".
