fdpowermon
==========

Shows an icon in the system tray for battery state.

Features:
- minimalist. The code consists of a good 500 lines, most of which are
  documentation and comments.
- A power _monitor_, not a power manager.
- The ability (not enabled by default) to suspend a laptop on low power
  levels, or do other tasks when the battery reaches a particular level.

Written in perl, fdpowermon requires the Gtk3 perl module and
(optionally) libnotify GObject introspection data. It uses the `acpi`
program, called every three seconds, to read power levels.

If libnotify is not available, or the necessary infrastructure is not
set up by the window manager, fdpowermon will fall back to using a
dialog box. It is also possible to explicitly disable the use of
notifications.

The script can be themed through a configuration file, either in /etc or
in ~/.config.

To install, do the following:
- On Debian or derivatives, run 'apt-get install fdpowermon'.
- On Arch Linux, install fdpowermon from AUR
- On other distributions:
     - Ensure all dependencies are installed
     - Copy the fdpowermon script to your path
     - Add fdpowermon to your X11 session
     - Profit!
