Battery Monitor is a utility tool developed on Python3 and PyGtk3. It will notify user about charging, discharging, not charging and critically low battery state of the battery on Linux (Surely if battery is present).
- Issue Tracking
To use Battery Monitor you need these dependencies installed on your PC.
Let’s install from PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maateen/battery-monitor -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install battery-monitor -y
That’s all. Battery Monitor is installed on your system.
Every time, you will start/restart your PC, it will run automatically in background. But as it’s your first time, let’s start it by yourself.
battery-monitor is the relevant command, you can use on Terminal to start the Battery Monitor. Surely, I have a different idea. Just press alt+f2,
battery-monitor command in the box and press
enter. That’s all.
