Search for gkrellm .

I'm not sure if it's in the default Slackware installation, but there should be packages for it at linuxpackages.net or wherever.

gkrellm was included in my installation.

Personally, I prefer Torsmo, though. I built it from source, but I'm sure a package can be found to install. Some of the plugins for grkrellm seem pretty cool, though ...

As kde user you may want to go here : http://www.kde-look.org/ and look at the "karamba" section

it works in XFce4, but XFce4 acts basically like a slimmed down version of Gnome (uses many of the same libraries and plugins)

Can't contest to KDE though. I'm trying to stick away from gdesklets now, I think it uses a lot of my resources, but it's definately nice eye-candy and can be helpful.
