This seems like a bit of a newbie question, so I put it here. Hopefully this is the right spot!
I'm running Mint 14 with Cinnamon x64.
I was wondering if it was possible to embed a music player into my desktop, similar to how Conky is embedded into my desktop. I really like clean looks rather than having a bunch of windows and programs open; especially for things that I will almost always have open (e.g. conky, music player). I've seen a few random linux desktops with this (or what appears to be this) on them, and was hoping someone knew how to do it.
