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.


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

    Just as a side note, screenlets is no longer updated, and is not supported on 16.04+.
