    Install conky (it's in the repos), then go to here to get some ideas for what you want it to look like http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...hlight=conkyrc There's also a how-to here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6365702

    Nah thats not it although i just installed it anyways...its more along the lines as a slide plane/ sidebar like the vista one if you know what I'm talking about. Its' an actual toobar but displays comp. stuff.

    A "tool" that displays that kind of stuff is gkrellm. You can get it through Synaptic.

    It's similar to conky in its usage but it's not as detailed as conky because you can only choose from predefined options.
