I use KDE.

It doesn't toggle, and the value of XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP is KDE.

Please enable sizing/moving (or at least moving) and hiding of the window; 
it is the first thing I tried to do but it doesn't work.

I also suggest adding a legend to the slider at the bottom.
I had no idea what it was supposed to do.

And lastly, consider adding a context menu on the window, 
where I can choose 'Quit' or so. It took me some time to 
realize I had to do this through the toolbar.

The toolbar menu has 'Show the CPU usage graph'. 
At first sight it didn't do anything, so I thought 
it would open/close the window. It does not.
Only later I realized it stops the animated graph.

Other than that, nifty tool.
