    - Screenlets (it's in the repos)

    - AWN (also in the repos -- avant-window-navigator)

    You can also use Google Gadgets instead of Screenlets if you like.
    And a popular alternative to AWN is Cairo-Dock

    i personally like cairo-dock over awn. if you're adventurous, you can try kiba-dock.

    After you download those suggested you might like to check out http://gnome-look.org since they have more variation and more themes. If you would like to change the way that your panels look, you would need to install a "GTK 2x" theme. For the login window you need to install a "GDM" theme. Hope this helps!

    See customizing guide in my signature.

    (note: don't install screenlets from the reporitory !!!! , see link)

    Also, forget AWN, use cairo-dock, trust me, it's better.
