Ubuntu – How to get Ubuntu version number on the Wallpaper


I want to have Ubuntu Version name on my Desktop Wallpaper same as we have at login screen (LDM greeter) of UBUNTU 12.04LTS at bottom.

I want the same way on my desktop wallpaper on opposite side (left of screen). with same font and same style that unity-greeter has.

Anyone knows how to get UBUNTU Version name on Desktop alike UNITY Greeter ?

Any way to use UNITY-Greeter as Desktop Wallpaper ?

Anotherpossibility would be conky (http://conky.sourceforge.net/) which lets you place all kinds of information on your desktop. The only problem is that it is configurable only via editing a config file by hand, but displaying static text only is pretty easy.
