Making a widget

9100
Hi,

I would like to display a widget with text from a website on my desktop
background.

For example: on website XYZ.com stays an currency exchange and that info
changes every day.

How can I get a widget with the information from a website on my desktop
background?

Thanks in advance.

Samuel

You can take a look at Conky, a system monitor program that shows stats on your desktop. It is also able to show online information such as weather, so I suspect you can rewrite a script to do what you want. However, it requires some knowledge to get it working, especially on Ubuntu Unity...
