If you haven't heard of conky take a look here - Conky - Home

I use a .conkyrc derived from the one posted here - Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots - Page 1605 - Ubuntu Forums

Had to make a few changes to adjust for my screen resolution (1920x1200). You will need to install/configure conkyForecast and also register with weather.com for accessing their XOAP service for weather forecast data. Details available here - [all variants] Conky Weather Forecast Python Script - Ubuntu Forums

The next important step is to download the fonts mentioned in the .conkyrc file and put them in $HOME/.fonts

Fonts:
# ConkyWeather (Stanko Metodiev)
# ConkyWindNESW (Stanko Metodiev)
# Cut Outs for 3D FX (Fonts & Things)
# Droid Font Family (Google Android SDK)
# Moon Phases (Curtis Clark)
# OpenLogos (Icoma)
# PizzaDude Bullets (Jakob Fischer)
# Radio Space (Iconian Fonts)
# StyleBats (Vinterstille)
# Ubuntu (Canonical Ltd)
# Ubuntu Title Bold (Paulo Silva)
# Weather (Jonathan Macagba)

Just google the font name and you should be able to find them. The latest Droid Font Family can be downloaded from the android git repo - http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=pl...b04dd27e6d20809f8ff26920d1e761a0005252;sf=tgz

Once you have put all the fonts in $HOME/.fonts update the font cache by running
Code:
fc-cache -v -f
Save the following .conkyrc in your home directory ($HOME/.conkyrc)
Code:
