Thanks!You have 2 ways of doing this.You can either draw a transparent bar on the wallpaper like I did(using gimp).Or you can set up a conky script to draw it for you.You could also use awn to generate it, but then the conky-indicator would be beneath it.Maybe there is a way to figure that one out though.But the easiest way is to just create a separate file in gimp and then just copy-paste it on your wall.
Ah, so it's by installing the dock. Cairo has way too much configuration. Feels so annoying. What I would need is something really simple. A slick, themeable dock, that doesn't require lotsa configuration.
