A Superkaramba theme wich displays your acpi status, the charge of your battery and the time remaining until it is (dis)charged.
You have a choice of 4 flat themes in the configure menu.


Released 1.1:

Now you can configure (in the configure menu) the directory location of your AC status file (usually /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/AC or /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/AC0) so it will theorically work on all computers.

Hi! Can you give a description of your whole desktop? I'd like to know all the superkaramba themes you've used... as well as other programs (I think ksmooothdock maybe?)

Looks great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes as you expected I use ksmoothdock as bottom bar. My karamba themes are xmms-fullbar from "light 'n crisp" (with a home made background: white at alpha=20%), tuxmon with my background and some modifications, liquid weather plus with "plain white - flat 2" background and my WiFi and ACPI monitors. The desktop background is a picture (taken by a friend) from 3 Cap10 planes on the Carcassonne-Salvaza airport (France).

 Can´t figure it out

I can´t seem to figure this theme out...

I fire it up in superkaramba 0.35 (gentoo) and all I get is a light-blue box, a brown battery with the plugged in symbol, and a white bar...

ACPI is enabled (klaptop works...)

Any idea what´s wrong?

Sorry but I haven't been updating it for a long time... So it's still for superkaramba 0.34...

You should use my new Aero-G ACPI theme wich is made for superkaramba 0.35.

But if you really want to use this version, I will update it...

I got exactly the same problem... also with gentoo...

it seems that the output of '/usr/bin/acpi -t' does not contain information about the battery status.

on my box (dell inspiron 8500 notebook) it only contains informations about thermal zone1.

wouldn't it be better to collect the informations about battery-, ac-status from the '/proc/acpi' folder?

i'm actually not experienced with python, but since i'm studying informatics, i'm trying to change that...

if you're interested please contact me, or i can send you a copy of my version when i get it to work

You can take Aero-G ACPI's code that have been updated...
On my computer it does that:
$ acpi -t
Battery 1: charged, 100%
Thermal 1: ok, 96.0 degrees C

hm, I looked around and found out that there seems to be a problem with the implementation of the 'acpi' util...

on my laptop it doesn't show all plugged in batteries when using 'acpi -t'. I only get the second battery, or the first if it gets charged...

at the moment I'm rewriting the code, so that it detects if there are 1 or 2 batteries. it will also fix the problem mentioned above...

but please don't ask, I don't know when its ready... don't have much time right now...

I will mail you the code when I'm ready, ok?

I have an APC USB and am using apcupsd deamno.
I installed your nice theme but am not able to:
1) change themes
2) customize it providing the correct path.

Could you please provide detailed info on how to set this up?

I currently use gentoo amd64 with kde 3.4.2

Thank you,

Hi AdrienV, i was atracted for the simplicity of your acpi monitor so I downloaded. it didn't work, but making some change to the code (the beauty of GPL) its started works.

I'm planing to do some develop on it whith the goal to "keep it simple". I would be glad to hear you opinion about it. you can found it in:


The first version (0.1) it is only your original work whith some arrenge.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
