tk_docapp is a small user interface to monitor the battery status under OpenBSD. I use it under the cwm windows manager.

The requirements


This software stands under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE and comes with NO warranty of any kind. You use it at your own risk.

date version description
27. February 2015 0.6.0 - removed the current average function again (didn't deliver good results)
- after startup we make some extra polling of the battery
21. August 2014 0.5.0 - using an average for the discharge current to have a more realistic time prediction
- protect the formulas agains dividing by zero
13. April 2014 0.4.0 - rewritten from scratch
- tk_docapp monitors the laptop battery (only) under OpenBSD now


Only try out without installation:

An installation into your system is very easy:

Thats all. Now you can start the program with "tk_docapp".

Hint for FreeBSD and OpenBSD-user: on your system the tclsh is installed with a version prefix (e.g. tclsh8.5) but we need a simple "tclsh". Before you can start the program you must set a link: e.g. ln -s /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.5 /usr/local/bin/tclsh


Thats all.


Nobody is perfect - bugreports, comments and opinions are very welcome.

I wish you a good time
