XOSD

https://sourceforge.net/projects/libxosd/
a simple library to display shaped text on your X display.

XOSD displays text on your screen, sounds simple right? The difference is it is unmanaged and shaped, so it appears transparent. This gives the effect of an On Screen Display, like your TV/VCR etc. It also contains an XMMS plugin and a simple example program that can display system logs overlaid on your desktop.
