How to install Htop 2.0.1 on Ubuntu 16.04

   Htop is an interactive real time process monitoring application for Linux/Unix like systems and also a handy alternative to top command, which is default process monitoring tool that comes with pre-installed on all Linux operating systems

     Since version 2.0, htop is now cross-platform! Check out the video and slides of my presentation at FOSDEM 2016 about how this came to be. This release includes code supporting Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Mac OS X.

  •     Moving meters and columns around in the setup screen is a lot more comfortable now.
  •     You can now press "e" to see the set of environment variables for a process.
  •     The "graph" mode for meters was revamped, inspired by James Hall's vtop.
