I like to use conky which can be configured anyway you like:

enter image description here

You can google conky and find 787,000 hits. There is something for everyone.

At the top of the display notice “Lock screen: 4 Minutes Brightness: 2074”. These are generated by “Indicator-Sysmonitor” which allows you to display on the systray / application indicator using a bash script.

For a tutorial on setting up “Indicator-Sysmonitor” see: Can BASH display in systray as application indicator?
