ACPI functions for XFce
 
Are there any 'battery monitor' type GUI apps for XFce like there are in KDE?(I could try to use the KLaptop app in XFce, but thats a little kludgy for me. If I have to, I will)

there is a plugin for the xfce panel also gkrellm has a plugin for that and there is a battery monitor for adesklets.

try gkrellm

Quote:

gkrellm (GNU Krell Monitors)

gkrellm charts SMP CPU, load, Disk, and all active net interfaces
automatically. An on/off button and online timer for the PPP interface
is provided. Monitors for memory and swap usage, file system, internet
connections, APM laptop battery, mbox style mailboxes, and cpu temps.
Also includes an uptime monitor, hostname label, and clock/calendar.

Bill Wilson is the author of gkrellm.
It's on XAP directory

Thanks, all.

Will try them both

Have you looked at the panel plugins on the XFCE Goodies Project page? There should be something of the sort you mentioned.

CW if you get the temp sensor to work (and if you're running the 2.4.31 kernel) would you please send me a message? I don't know why but I haven't had any luck with that on Slackware. With a couple of live CDs it shows the temp so I know my BIOS is supporting it.

Thanks,
Rand

There is an xfce4-goodies package available on linuxpackages.net, which does come with a battery monitor, among other things.

Unfortunately, I'm running the 2.6.17-rc3 kernel. I sent you my config for it.

Yes, all temps/etc works fine in gkrellm

Might be something in your 2.4 kernel....

You might need the lm-sensors package to be able to get temperature readings in gkrellm et.al. I know I needed it.

Mine is working fine without it, but different hardware, different results (Heck, everybody knows that drill....lol)
I guess thats an advantage to using older hardware: More stuff is supported. "Cutting Edge" is cool, but you can cut yourself too....lol

Thanks guys, yeah, when I looked a few months ago I saw that it had a dependency on lm_sensors. But when I went to get lm_sensors it had more dependencies. So I just gave up. I was hoping CW would find something that would work on 2.4+
