df -h should work on the commandline
is this what you are looking for?
you could also use du -sh /home (forexample will give you the amount of space take up by your home directory)
I know the command line but I was looking for something more like conky. I just found it and am configin now
Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

If you have an ssh or ftp connection to the server from an Ubuntu Desktop, you can use Disk Usage Analyzer on the remote server.

try "durep"


urep Examples

1. “durep -w ~/durepweb -td 2¿

This would print the directory tree starting from the current directory to depth 2 to the console and also create web pages in the directory ~/durepweb (this directory must exist).

2. “durep -f /var/spool/mail”

This might be useful for keeping a check on the mail directory. The “-f” switch tells durep to just scan files and not descend into directories. Since the “-w” switch is not present, no web pages are produced.

3. “durep -x -cp “/(etc|usr/share)” -ep “/var” /”

This more complicated version does the following. It scans the root filesystem only, hides the contents of any paths begining /etc or /usr/share and skips the contents of the /var directory.

4. “durep -q -sf durep.save /home ”

This scans /home and saves the results to the save fail durep.save. No text output is produced.

5. “durep -q -w ~/durepweb -lf durep.save /home ”

This reads the save file durep.save and produces a web report from it in the directory ~/durepweb. No text output is produced.
