Subject description: when the battery level is critical
 

Powerapplet_tray-2.5 with extra functions.

I decided to test if I could add to the existing C source code Xdialog and alarm sound warning when Battery is discharging at 10 % level and shutdown when battery level is 5 %.

I think that my small additions were succesful without C coding knowledge.

So...at 10 % discharging level you should get Xdialog warning of low battery and also short alarm sound. Those will repeat about once a minute. At 5 % discharging level the wmpoweroff will be executed and computer will shutdown.....with saving and with normal shutdown process.

I needed alternative to the vattery-acpitool because it has not been reliable for me after several suspends to the ram and waking up. The Vattery tray app has been there but the certain battery level operations has not been performed.
I decided to test something else....
