As laptop batteries age, they can misreport their information to the computer, causing some battery monitors to fail. This is a especially true with replacement batteries.

Batterup is an alternate monitor. It displays the estimated time remaining until shutdown and pops up a warning message when the battery is low.

Please note: The Batterup tray icon does NOT change its appearance with the status of the battery - use a mouse-over. To see the time remaining, the charger must be UNplugged. Wait a moment for the information to update.

Update: V1.3 has an auto-shutdown feature. If you don't respond to the warning message for two minutes, Batterup will run a poweroff command.

--------------------------------

The default warning time is 10 minutes. To change it, do the following:

1. Go to the folder /root/Startup
2. Open the file batterup_start in a text editor.
3. Modify Line 3:
Code:
WARNTIME=10   # minutes from shutdown

4. Run System > Batterup restart

------------------------

If your battery doesn't provide useful timing information to Batterup, you can use the amount of charge remaining in milliAmp-hours. This will take some trial-and-error to calibrate. For example:
Code:
WARNTIME=500
UNITS=mAh

If that doesn't work reliably, switch to the minimum voltage in milliVolts.

Code:
WARNTIME=9500
UNITS=mV

Hi Bill, got a battery now and tested batterup, but maybe something is wrong with my battery because it takes forever to get fully charged.
Also I tried "fdpowermon" (it's in Debian repo) , btw, did you check that ?
With fdpowermon it's In fact the same for me (taking forever to reach 100%) but at some point it shows a (promising) 99% saying only a few minutes to go, but gets stuck on that (but maybe I have to be more patient Wink )

That's not unusual. What does the LED indicator on your laptop show? It is the final judge on the state of charging.

In the case of Batterup, unplug the charger to see the time remaining.

Ah, yes, goes from orange to green at some point and then when I unplug the charger it shows 130 min remaining, OK for me !
Another nice contribution from you, thanks, repos still have v1.2, will add 1.3 soon.

Hi Fred: I ran the upgrade-kernel procedure on one of my Stretch-Live installs and it was a success.

I then took the new /lib/modules/4.9.0-4-686-pae folder and converted it into a squashfs module.

I dropped that module, the new vmlinuz1 and initrd1.xz files into another install. That appeared to do a kernel switch without having to run the upgrade procedure..

Is there any downside to this method?

Bill

Hi Bill, what you did should work well, but the downside can be that the newer kernel (linux-image package) is not registered by the package management.
For example, In your other install, when you run now upgrade-kernel, dpkg or apt doesn't know about the up-to-date linux-image version and will do the "upgrade" to the same version you already have (otherwise it would say "already the newest version"), so upgrade-kernel is sort of useless then.
EDIT: On second thought, I think so, but not sure that the above will happen, didn't test that actually)

Fred

Hi Fred:

If I run the mklive script today, which kernel will I get? -03 or -04?

Quick question.

I've been using Bleachbit to cut down on the size of my changes folder.

I've noticed 2 files that I am 99% sure get created by synaptic or apt-get the first time you reload the repository databases after a remaster. They are /var/cache/apt/pkgcache.bin /var/cache/apt/srcpkgcache.bin. They are about 26 meg each.

Are these just an apt-get/synaptic cache that I can safely tell bleachbit to delete that will be regenerated when I reload the repositories with apt-get update or synaptic reload? Or should I leave them alone?

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dancytron !

Here is what i experienced .
Using Bleachbit does not delete pkgcache.bin and srcpkgcache.bin ........i always have to delete them manually.
When reloading Repos ....they will be regenerated .
Could not discover any Downside........but can not guaranty if there are any .Maybe somebody else knows .

Regards !

Sure, these are regenerated when reload with Synaptic or apt-get update, so can be safely removed by using bleachbit.
(same goes for content of /var/lib/apt/lists/ , btw)

Ok, I added them to bleachbit.

Interestingly, when Bleachbit deletes them, they instantly come back but in a much smaller size (1.1 meg and .45 meg). When I run apt-get update, they get regenerated back to normal and everything works as it should.

Thanks,

Dan
