For those who can't see remaining time, run "plasmaengineexplorer --engine powermanagement", expand the "Battery" item in the tree and check if there's a "Remaining msec" field and its value is non zero, should look like this: http://i.imgur.com/ODse8.png

Ok, thanks for your reply. I'm on Chakra Linux with the latest KDE already. I can see the remaining battery by other means (for instance, right now I run $upower --show-info /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT1 | grep "time").
What I see in plasma engine explorer is this: http://imageshack.us/f/145/snapshot1r.png/ (now I think "Battery" is actually the AC power and "Battery0" is the actual battery. The first says 0msec remaining and the second doesn't have the field.

"Battery" shows a cumulative remaining time of all available batteries, so the info should be there only, not in individual battery[0-9]+ entries. If the remaining msec is 0 for you, I can't really do much about it (may be you can ask on plasma-devel mailing list) because all this plasmoid does is reads the value from there and converts it into "x hours and x mins".

No? Shouldn't I have my own opinion? I thought the fragmentation of opinions is one of advantages of Linux, many points of view, many influences... Thank you for telling me... totalitarianism.

Ne? Nesmím prezentovat vlastní názor? Měl jsem za to že se jedná o jednu z deviz Linuxu, různé názory, různé vlivy... Ještěže jste mě upozornil. V češtině se tomu říká totalitarismus. Osobně mi přijde Váš postoj zvrácenější, Vaše "broukpytlíkovství" - mimochodem krásný výraz který jste vymyslel, rovněž jedna z typických vlastností čechů, vymýšlet novotvary pro urážky (modroptáci, kryptobolševickosocdemáci...) - ještě nikoho nezabila, ale touha říkat ostatním co je A co není správné už "pár" lidí z života vyřadila.

LOL, I'm not forbidding you from having an opinion. Dunno where you come to that conclusion, it certainly isn't in my post.

But you see, there is a reason backed by arguments why this feature was dropped. You, without even trying to prove these arguments wrong, called devs insane, which is...somthing only a really stupid person can do. So I merely poited this out...

But as one of my friends like to say: "Everyone have an undisputed right to look stupid on the internetz", so be my guest.

btw. calling someone "totalitarianist" just because you cannot read (or understand written text) right is pretty stupid as well

(sorry for the OT, I just cannot help myself)

 Bug: remaining percentage not updated in popup

 
 by openFox on: Sep 22 2012
 
Score 50%

With KDE 4.9.1 the remaining percentage (not remaining time) is not updated in the popup, it always stays on the same value when discharching.

The value delivered by the underlying data engine is correct, and it works as expected in the original battery plasmoid. It is also updated on a reload of plasma.

Until the developers of KDE decide to bring back this important funcionality in the upstream plasmoid, which will also be looked after and updated along with the rest of KDE, it would be great if you could fix this. Else this plasmoid is unfortunately not helpful.

Poke me if I can provide further information. System is a gentoo x86_64, qt 4.8.3, kde 4.9.1 on a thinkpad t410 with the built-in standard battery.

Kind regards

Hi,

yes, it appears that it is fixed now, thank you a lot :)

As you know, I'd love to see that in upstream. But as this won't happen, thanks a lot for providing the alternative plasmoid here. I hope you'll manage to keep it up to date with upstream.

Again, thanks for your work.

Kind regards

Don't worry, I myself am the maintainer of the upstream battery plasmoid, so this alternate version will be kept up-to-date :)
Still if you find any inconsistencies at any point, just leave a comment here and I'll get it done.

Well, yes, one of the issues that unfortunately comes with this not being upstream: there are some translations missing.

Is there a simple way to translate it? (both "hours" and of course the name of the option in the UI is untranslated here. The hours one surprises me, as I am quite sure that KDE does provide a standard translation for that)

Thanks for your work

 Displays only one of two batteries

 
 by claude0001 on: Oct 15 2012
 
Score 50%

Hi viranch. Many thanks for making this non-official version available.

I have a system (Lenovo T400) with two batteries. The Enhanced Battery Monitor correctly displays the total remaining time.

However, it displays only the charge state of one battery, although two ("Battery0" and "Battery1") show up correctly as sources in Plasma Engine Explorer.

The tooltip states e.g. "Battery: 93% (discharging)". Comparison with the information form Plasma Engine Explorer suggests that this corresponds to "Battery0". The information for "Battery1" is omitted.

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.1 with Kernel 3.2.0 (amd64) and KDE 4.9.2.

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.
