Apparently the "System Load Viewer" is obsolete.  I couldn't make it
work.  But there is a very similar plasmoid called "System Monitor
Plasmoid" that works.  WHen downloading it the system gave me a choice
of versions. I chose the latest: 2.7 and it works.  This is the version
by Barry Strong (thanks Barry!).  Maybe the old "System Load Viewer"
should be removed?
