there are no stupid questions, just stupid answers.

Also next time make the title of the thread more informative.

anyway what you are looking for is called Conky:

i think it is probably in the software center. as i know it is not so trivial to configure, but maybe they improved by now.

just for additional info there is a Java based GUI to configure conky on the web. i manged to install it to the vbox Xubuntu, but not to run it.


you can give it a try maybe you will have more luck than i did.
