Orphaning package to let valr take over, as valr is maintaining the git repo now.

Could you update the PKGBUILD to perform standard make & make install ?
Currently, the binary is installed "by hand" so the package is missing the README file.

Example (or see cbatticon AUR PKGBUILD):

build() {

package() {
make PREFIX="$pkgdir/usr" install

@xentalion, I've merged the changes from hasufell in git. It's an improved Makefile. I've also tagged cbatticon in github as 1.0 and created a new AUR package 'cbatticon' for the tagged release.

Could you update this PKGBUILD to take the new Makefile into account ?


Modify package() function:
make PREFIX="$pkgdir/usr" install

Hi, new features have been added to set low battery level and critical battery level. For help on available options: cbatticon --help

Nevermind me. For whatever reason, I wasn't able to switch my icon theme (which was set to Oxygen) while using the QtCurve theme. Once I switched to Clearlooks, I was able to switch icon themes and get a working icon theme.

Is there any way to express "have an available icon" in the dependencies? I doubt it, but maybe.

Is there some package I need to get this working with an icon?

[andrew@Tiger ~] cbatticon -t
List of available icon types:

Standard type : unavailable
Notification type : unavailable
Symbolic type : unavailable

I have various GTK icon packages installed, i.e., faenza-icon-theme, gtk-engines, and simple-icon-theme for example. I've also set my GTK theme and icon theme using lxappearance. But still no dice.

Any ideas?

I think you are missing the udev dependency! At least, namcap says so and looking at your makefile I assume it is right :)

valr commented on 2011-10-25 19:55

sorry, /me stupid. udev is part of base group.

valr commented on 2011-10-25 19:53

Can you add udev dependency ?
cbatticon uses libudev which is part of udev package.

Package updated to remove libacpi dependency.

valr commented on 2011-10-25 17:44

Fyi, the deprecated libacpi has been replaced by libudev to read /sys/class/power_supply information.
There is still a problem I have to look at: it can take a bit of time to have the refreshed info in /sys/... so the value is not always accurate when the notification is sent.

The PKGBUILD will soon be adapted by xentalion to replace libacpi by udev.
