gkrellm-ThinkBat - a IBM Thinkpad battery monitor plugin for gkrellm2.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
gkrellm-ThinkBat is meant as a replacement for the default gkrellm battery 
meter, which doesn't quite work with thinkpads sometimes. 
(because of incomplete /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0 information?)
It uses the IBM Thinkpad SMAPI Driver.

Features
--------
It shows battery percentage, time left (or time to full charge) and power consumption 
or loading in Watts. Except for the optional time/consumption panel and
battery percentage in different font it should look the same as default battery meter.
It uses the same decals, so you need to change those (i.e. ../theme/decal_misc.png), 
if you need to. 


Requirements
------------
Gkrellm2, 
tp_smapi >= 0.16. (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tpctl)
It was tested with Gkrellm 2.2.7 and tp_smapi-0.16.

Installation
------------
$ make
$ make install
this installs gkrellm-thinkbat.so to ~/.gkrellm2/plugins/. You can copy it manually 
elsewhere. 

Bugs
----
I needed this applet, so I looked at others, that I used (namely 
gkrellm2-batteries by Eugene Pavlovsky, gkrellm-wifi by Henrik Brix Andersen, 
and gkrellm-multiping by Jindrich Makovicka), and wrote it. Therefore, it may contain 
hideous bugs caused by my own ignorance, as I didn't even know of the plugin writing 
manuals of GkrellM.
