Setup conky

Conky is a free, light-weight system monitor for X, that displays any information on your desktop. Conky is licensed under the GPL and runs on Linux and BSD.

To install conky just open the terminal end type
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install conky
Now that you have conky in installed you can start it to see if it works
It should start, but the default conky is pretty ugly. So to get a better conky navigate to your home folder and create a new conky config
cd $home

gedit .conkyrc
Now you can write your own conky config
