Description

gkrellm-ThinkBat was meant as a replacement for the default battery meter in GKrellM. It should look like default, only it optionally shows time remaining/power consumption. It currently supports only one battery. It is superceded by Gkrellm-HwMonBat on newer kernels which provide the /proc/acpi/battery interface.

Latest version: 0.2.2 (2006-02-13)
