Hi Ian, 

Could you address this user request in next speedometer release.

Thanks,
Jari (The Debian package Maintainer)

    Package: speedometer
    Version: 2.4-1
    Severity: wishlist

    It would be very nice to be able to choose a linear scale instead of
    the logarithmic one. Logarithmic scales are very hard to interpret
    visually. In speedometer, the scale intervals are 1 KB/s, 32 KB/s, and
    1 MB/s. My max upload speed is around 40 KB/s, and my max download
    speed is around 155 KB/s. That means that from 32 KB/s to 155 KB/s
    there is very little detail on the logarithmic scale in speedometer,
    which makes the graphs rather useless. An increase in download speed
    from 40 KB/s to 100 KB/s (2.5x, or jumping from about 40% to 65% of
    max) moves only three increments on the graph, or around 15% of the
    graph scale. The upload graph is worse: an increase from 20 KB/s to 40
    KB/s (2x, or jumping from 50% to 100% of max) moves only one
    increment, or about 5% of the graph. (Increment meaning a row on the
    console.)
