I run Ubuntu 13.10 with cinnamon as the window manager. I like to play my games in fullscreen when I can, but I also would like to see the system cpu/mem usage as well. I don't want to use a GL-Ingect (having to choose between mumble-overlay, steam-overlay and simplescreenrecorder is already a chore!), so conky appears to be the best option, without any manual C coding.

Can I have conky over absolutely EVERYTHING (on cinnamon 2.0)?
