Hi, there is a small bug in the slimbookbattery.install file. There is a } character missing to close the post_install() function.

Hi, installation throws an error because there is a space missing in line 11 in the PKGBUILD

error: could not find all required packages: libappindicator-gtk3libnotify (wanted by: slimbookbattery)

@rplanchuelo @Caraczan: Turns out I was mistaken and I removed the requirement.

Slimbookbattery 4.* works with TLP 1.4 it's because TLP 1.4 can take arguments of TLP 1.3.1.

In this issue owner explains this in comments.

I've confirmed by manually downloading this and changing tlp requirements, installation and program works flawlessly for me.

For reference I'm on Manjaro(newest stable) KDE Plasma, AMD x86_64.

Plese change tlp requirements to accept newer tlp 1.4.*

I've just installed with TLP 1.4 and I think it works right, without bugs

For anyone still having the same problem as @andreip, I found that by following the Arch Locale instructions on generating a locale worked for me, as I had some incorrectly generated locales. After re-generating the correct locales, the problem was solved

For those with NVIDIA hybrid graphics, let me know if nvidia-prime works instead of arch-prime-git.

It does not work anymore on my computer (using Manjaro). It gives the following error. Does anyone know anything about?

(base) [slimbook@slimbook-PROX14 ~]$ slimbookbattery

Exported all my LC_* variables in ~/.profile and it works. Found no other way, locale.conf was generated and contained the variables. Thank you!

@ciferkey: The source won't be available until after the beta phase according to their GitHub README. I just looked at /usr/share/slimbookbattery/slimbookbattery.

@yochananmarqo thanks for taking the package over!

Where did you find the source for the project so you could inspect the error? I wanted to do so myself but couldn't find it.

@andreip I had generated my locale but did not create /etc/locale.conf. Once I set that up and restarted it was able to run.

tioguda commented on 2019-12-24 23:10 (UTC)

I don't use the program, so I'll be abandoning it so that someone who can test it will adopt it.

@ciferkey @adreip: I can't reproduce that error. Maybe I have something installed you two don't that need to be added to the dependencies.

Line 29 has something to do with getting the locale. It's looking for either "en", "es", "it" or "gl". If your locale is set to something else, it should default to "en". Is your locale something other than the above?

Similar to andreip I am getting the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/slimbookbattery/slimbookbattery", line 29, in <module>
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'find'

$ /usr/bin/slimbookbattery

@sperezl, thanks for the info.

Thanks @tioguda for this package. If you don't have xorg-xdpyinfo the slimbookbattery preferences crush at start with the following error.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/slimbookbattery/", line 3533, in <module> File "/usr/share/slimbookbattery/", line 63, in init ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

Because can't exec dimensiones = subprocess.getoutput("xdpyinfo | grep 'dimensions:'")

Solved with the installation of this package. Now it works well in Manjaro. As a suggestion, add xorg-xdpyinfo to the dependencies.
