battery plasmoid with remaining time
KDE Plasma 4 Extensions
Score 54%
Description:

I patched the kde battery plasmoid to show a checkbox for its hidden config-option to display the remaining time.

Requires kde4-workspace-devel >= 4.6 to compile.
Install:
extract and open konsole in extracted directory. type "ccmake ." and adapt your prefix (mostly /usr), type "make". then generate an rpm/deb package with "cpack -G RPM" / "cpack -G DEB" and install package with your packagemanager.

To have the remaining time also displayed on status icon, also check checkbox in options for display separate battery icons, because in other case, percentages are summed up for multiple batteries.

HI,
This is not working on Opensuse 11.4 KDE 4.6 32 bit.
Compilation went ok, no error but the plasmoid does not show up in the list.

Before installing this plasmoid, please note that this is also possible with the original Battery Plasmoid shipped with Plasma, you just have to add one line to the configuration file, as explained here: http://vizzzion.org/blog/2009/11/battery-improvements-in-kde-plasma-4-4/

This Plasmoid hasn't been updated in a while, so it might contain bugs or lack features that have been implemented upstream already, but haven't been integrated into this fork.

Easy to install
easy to use...

But, is that possible to have the remaining tome written ON the battery applet?

I had this, but its not working anymore...

someone seems to have removed the time display ON the applet, but you can check the second checkbox in the options, to have it displayed there. If someone has two batteries and is willing to do some testing for me, I could perhaps make it work without that option, too. I also added some info on that topic in the description above.

Right, I checked all the boxes

- show the the state of every battery (even if I only have one)
- show charging informations

and now its working

Do you have to enable the option to show the time in the official plasmoid before compiling, or is it something in the rc scripts?

In the latter case, it would be nice if you could point to me which script it is.

Please have a look here for a solution via rc-file:

open a konsole in the folder you downloaded the plasmoid to and type

tar -xvf plasmoid.tar.gz
cd plasmoid
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make

as root (via the commands sudo or su) type

make install
kbuildsycoca4

If there are compiler errors, install developing packages like cmake, libstd++, gcc etc.
