It seems like you're looking for Conky.

To install it on your Ubuntu, do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install conky-manager

To remove conky manager:

sudo apt-get remove conky-manager

There are plenty of Conky themes all over the web. You may find one to fit your needs.

UPDATE:

As stated by Nahuel, You no longer need to add the PPA.

So to install conky:

sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install conky

To remove:

sudo apt-get remove conky
