 What it looks like?
 As I couldn't find any real documentation for writing gnome-shell extensions, I based my code on better or worse snippets and tutorials found on internet. Some of the sources are mentioned below:
+* `gnome-shell-extensions <>`_
+* `Musings of an OS plumber <>`_
+* `gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet <>`_
 How it works?
 I should have used instead of writing all the code myself, but I've found the module too late (did I mention lack of documentation?). Moreover I should have used instead of parsing /proc/net/dev/, but I don't believe it's supported in gnome-shell 3.0.
+In order to install gsettings schema, copy file to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas and invoke glib-compile-schemas on that direcory. Note that you need to be root or use sudo to do that::
+  # cp /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
+  # glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
+The directory should be copied to /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions or ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/::
+  # cp NetMonitor\ /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions
+  $ cp NetMonitor\ ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
