Battery Monitor

Score 64%
Description:

This is a simple battery monitor that I created for SuperKaramba. I wasn't really happy with the ones that were already available both because of looks and because I could never seem to get any of them to work.

Enjoy!! :-)

I've been trying to get KDE4.2.4's battery plasmoid working. This is just what I needed!

Hi,

I modified the Python script to read values from /proc/acpi/battery/* instead of from the acpi command-line utility, and to support multiple batteries, as well as show the remaining time for charge/discharge.

The modified script can be found here: https://ssl.toke.dk/files/batterymonitor.py

I have no idea if this will work for others, but it Works For Me (TM).

Cheers,

I didn't like the color either, but it was easy enough to change in the Gimp. If the creator consents, I could do a bunch of different colors and upload them.

Thank you!

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I've been without a computer for a while :-(. Please feel free to modify and redistribute. That's the beauty of open source and the GPL. ;-)

Too bad I use desktop computer.
If I would have a notebook, I would like to see different colors.
