Drawing and animating directly to the Desktop with Perl

[ Thanks to j00p34 for this link. ]

"It took me a lot of searching on the internet before I found a reasonably easy way to do this. The point is (or seems to be, I'm not an expert) that when I want to draw something to the Desktop with Gtk2 I always need to create a window (A square shaped window). I found out it's pretty easy to set the window decoration to false which provides me with a window consisting of a background alone. What I wanted though was some kind of invisible canvas on which I can draw an animation."
