I use it in Lighthouse 4. I see no reason to remove it. I don't give much feedback on things that work OK. It has practical value to me.

Thank you for replying. How are you running it in Lighthouse? Did you compile the tray applet from source?

I had to search back a few years to find that one. Wink

Please do not feel that way.
Like so many other, good and useful programs, people have come up with for Puppy.
They seem to get overlooked among all the topics in the forum.

It seems to be very true.
Something that just works never really gets much feedback.

Do not ever think people are not grateful for what you contribute to Puppy!!

If I had a laptop I would use this program, but all my computers are desktop home built's. No battery to monitor.

Wonder if there is a bios battery monitor Question Idea

OK finally got around to checking this I tried on 412 retro and it required libselinux.so.1 .pet here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=21514

Scroll down page.

Only thing I found is to get battery monitor to be update with having unplugged power cord I have to click Batterup restart monitor to update status. I presume this is normal behavior for this prog.

Yeah its a keeper. Thank you.

Don't do that, Bill.

As you know, I, too, am using it in Tahrpup.....where your .pet works perfectly. An extremely useful utility; it has tons of practical value.....and the ability to set the alarm parameters is especially handy.

I shall be 'spreading the word' about batterup wherever I can, and directing members to this thread!

Excellent work. Keep 'em coming. Thanks!


Mike. Smile

Well said bigpup ! We tend not to say much about the things that work that
others have so graciously contributed !

When we should at the very least say THANK YOU ! Wink

I use Xenial 32 frugal install on USB stick.

I never noticed how bad the default battery status icon worked because I had a battery that lasted for about 3 minutes. But some days ago I got a brand new battery and I saw the battery status is not changing after the computer startup.

I checked the forum for an alternative and stumbled over this topic. Bill (rcrsn51) provided me with version 1.7

It works flawlessly out of the box. When you unplug the power cord it needs about a minute to calculate the correct discharge. It dropped form 1222 minutes to 139 in one minute. I inserted an audio cd and it dropped further to around 85.

At 10 minutes the pop screen came up with a small beep. At 0 minutes the computer shuts down without save.

It took me more time to get rid of the default icon from the tray then to make this very usefull pet work. It should be a default app in Xenial.

Thnx rcrsn51.

Because it needs systematic testing, not a bunch of anonymous downloads.

Just like all other properly developed software.
