No worries, I should have suggested using it earlier on...assuming it works that is!

I figure the conky side of cover art should work but with the varying versions of rhythmbox we have and it's cover art workings it ain't easy to get the the bottom of the issues

The desktop art plugin also provides controls on the desktop to skip tracks etc...the one in the PPA was adapted by me slightly from the original to have a checkbox to turn on/off song info...so it can be used to just display the image and controls with conky doing the song info if that's what's wanted....
