I thought I would share this info

the new version of conky (1.8.0) now supports rgba (real transparency) this fixes the flickering and black border problems in KDE. See my screen shot, notice how its properly transparent on both compiz wallpapers?

Aye! Ghost in the shell is the Desktop. I've made it from some flayer I've found on the web.

The Shell is just normal KDE's Konsole. With absolute positioning and size. No borders no toolbar, translucent, always under the windows.
If you right click on the window title, you find option Advanced. There You'll find special application settings... Through that, you will set settings for pretty much anything.

Panels are done ''without panel ((:'' as the widgets...so remove panel and than add panel tools (pagers, launchers, clock on the desktop as widged through cashew ar just right click on desktop.

you need to install lua and tolua++ then compile conky. Lua is at slackbuilds.org and tolua++ is in the pending queue. Then just use the slackbuild of conky at slackbuilds.org, just edit the version number to 1.8.0 and add these lines to your ./configure

--enable-weather-xoap (for conkyforecast)
--enable-lua-cairo
--enable-imlib2
--enable-lua-imlib2

I can't seem to find the slackbuild for tolua++ at slackbuilds.org/pending, is it basically the same slackbuild as lua?

its not there yet, the pending queue is where packages that are submitted go to be reviewed before being posted. You'll have to wait until it is approved or you can compile it yourself. Let me see if i cant cobble a slackbuild together for you, or you could try src2pkg.
