"cat /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/ACAD/state
it doesn't make a difference wheter the battery is plugged in or not. but i forgot to tell: the battery status doesn't work out of the box under linux because of a messed up DSDT so i had to replace it with a working one. i don't know if that makes a difference though.
should the ouput look like this?
cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state
present: yes
capacity state: ok
charging state: charging
present rate: unknown
remaining capacity: 3801 mAh
present voltage: 2 mV

... i don't think these icons are under GPL. i just read a part of the EULA and it says


(but it doesn't say "free" as in "freebeer" or as in "freedom") and a bit later:

"You may not rent, sell, lease, sublicense, distribute, assign, copy [...], or in any way transfer the Software or use the Software for the benefit of any third party [...]"

it seems to be ok to host and redistribute the icons here, but as is said, choosing GPL in the upload dialog might not be the best choice. - Jul 16 2005

thanks for the reply!

that was a typo. the file isn't called "sate" but "state", so the code in is correct. and i tried everything i could imagine in the config-utility: /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/ACAD, /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/ACAD/state, /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/, /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state

but as i said: that didn't change anything :( - Jul 16 2005

1. very good theme!
2. the battery status doesn't work for me. it works in kde in general and even in gkrellm. i couldn't find out where they get the status from, so i can't fix it myself. all i know is that /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/AC doesn't exist here, but there is /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/ACAD containing only one file: "sate" (it's got only one line in it that says "state: on-line"). but there seems to be much more information in /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/.
it seems strange to me that /usr/bin/acpi doesn't tell me my battery state and a "/usr/bin/acpi -d /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/" simply outputs "No support for device type: battery". (support for the battery is compiled into the kernel, version 2.6.11)
i really don't know what to do about that and i'd really like to use this theme because it's one that seems to work reliably and stable until now. besides that, it's functional!

Program Control Center (KDE)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by nookie 60 comments

i don't think that it's kde's job to keep track of the software that is installed. besides the problems that you'd have to face because of different package management systems (.deb, .rpm, .tgz, ... and mixtures of those), it wouldn't make too much sense to build an application that only shows you what kde software is installed (because it largely depends on non-kde software). if you want to see what software in general is installed, simply use the tools your distribution provides. mostly they split all the packages up into different categories, so you get exactely what you're asking for here.

maybe i don't get it, but as i see it, there is no need for yet another package management program for kde. or are you simply complaining about kpackage? what is it that you don't like about it? - Jul 13 2005

i recompiled it with --enable-debug=full but i don't get any debug messages at all (in the konsole where i started klira). what am i making wrong? - Dec 14 2004

Audio Apps by AntonioFasolato 15 comments

i can install klira and all but when i try to convert mp3s it just does nothing. i choose the files to convert, click on "Next" (nothing happens there) and when i click on "Next" again, there's a list containing the files i tried to convert and below every file it says "Internal GStream error. Look at the console output for more details". unfortunately, there is no console output (not even if i started klira from the konsole). any suggestions? - Dec 12 2004

looks like the gstreamer devel packages are missing. just install them, run ./configure again and you should be ready to go. i just had the same "problem" and installing the devel packages helped.

well, i use it for a program called "nvidia-settings" that you get with newer nvidia drivers (1.0-6106 and above). here's the readme to it with all it's functionality described:

Network by jstamp 805 comments

the only thing i have to complain about is the color of the wlan icons. these red aerials look somehow as if something were wrong (i mean that red is always used for danger or the like - i hope you know what i mean). in addition one can't really see if the card sends or receives signals - the "blinking" of the aerials attracts too little attention.

at least imho.

unfortunately, 'nvidia-settings -q all' doesn't mention any temperature-related information. as someone said above, it is therefore physically impossible. at least i think so...

Double Trouble

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 8 comments

well, let's be honest: no intelligent individual nowadays would invent a creature like "god". maybe it was a neat story decades or centuries ago, but, as i said, nowadays it's not neccessary anymore. i don't want to say that religious people should stop believing in whatever they want (or better: are told) to believe.
it is just like this: i prefer believing in science that gives me answers that seem to be plausible to me than believing in a creature of which nobody can give me any evidence for its existence. in addition, most religions (like the christian religion) want me to PAY MONEY. i have no idea why i should pay money. i can believe in whatever i want without paying any money.
further, the christian religion is quite intolerant. i'm not gay, but i respect other people's sexual orientation, the church doesn't (only one example). but my favourite example is this one: why did the church kill people in the medieval age who said that the world isn't flat but spheric? ok, it is against the "facts" that were written down by a greek philosopher a few thousand years ago. this seems to be ok, but why did they admit in the 20. century that they were wrong, that they killed people because they said something against the churches lies and accept now what has already been plausible hundreds of years ago?

this is in my opinion already enough to think about the reliability of the church and its "facts". if you still don't want to think for yourself, let me give another example: the bible says, that the earth has been created within seven days. if i remember correctely, the vegetation has been created on the second or third day. a day is defined by the rotation of the earth around its axis until the sun is "on top" again. the sun was created on the fourth day. how long were the first three days then? think about it.
oh, and please don't come with such arguments as "you don't have to take that literally". if i don't take it literally, i can interpret everything as i want.
besides these inconsistencies, would you believe in a book of which nobody knows who the author is, which is hundreds of years old and which has been translated from language to language?
/me wouldn't. - Nov 17 2003
