KThinkBat is a laptop battery monitor for the KDE-Kicker.
KThinkBat is a laptop battery monitor for the KDE-Kicker. KThinkBat is inspired by the "Battery Maximizer" includes with IBM ThinkPads (now Levono).

Yes, I know, there is allready a standard battery monitor KDE-Application, but it is simply too small to realize the real battery charge at first blush.


The simplest way to compile this package is:

1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute `configure' itself.

Running `configure' takes a while. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.

2. Type `make' to compile the package.

3. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.

4. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'.

What's New in This Release:

Beta support for the new sysfs ACPI interface 'power_supply' for Linux Kernels >=2.6.24_rc1.
Refactored battery backends.
Each backend has its own driver now.
Currently available battery drivers are ACPI, ACPI_SYSFS (alpha), and SMAPI, but writing other driver should be easy.
'make install' installs kthinkbat_panelapplet.{la,so} into $PREFIX/lib/kdeX.
Translation updates to German, Italian, and Slovak.
A regression bug where "mWh" was used instead of the correct "mW" unit has been fixed.
This release will not show percentage values greater than 100.
