I was looking for something like this.
I have not tried it yet.

I was just thinking, a low battery warning that had a sound and an adjustment for the battery level it would come on at would be good.

HA. Just as I was writing this my battery died!

Illustrates the need.
So something along the same idea as the link.

I think that there are a number of options posted in the forums here.
The two that I like to use is xfce-power-manager for "larger" computers and conky/yad/aplay for "smaller".

My icewm taskbar solution . Works in Fluxbox slit and JWM taskbar also if put into the startup files. I think skidoo even improved it.

Linky

But you are welcome to install the script in your link and tell us all about it. After making sure you have enough python3 and gtk3 support to run it of course.

It doesn't have sound but another good option is to install xbattbar. With my setup a bright red line grows from right to left at the bottom of the screen, when the line reaches the left side of the screen the battery is dead. I have it at the bottom because my panel was moved to the top of the screen. I added xbattbar to the end of Control Center –-> session--> Global Desktop-Session so it starts every time I login.

I use:

xbattbar -t 4 -p 2 -I black -i black -O purple -o red -c bottom &

Most people would want the bar at the top of the screen so I would change it to:

xbattbar -t 4 -p 2 -I black -i black -O purple -o red -c top &

You may want to add a line to create delay before xbattbar starts in Global Desktop-Session file if you computer is older for example:

sleep 5 &


You can customize it to better meet your needs, look in xbattbar - - help for the options.


I hope this helps.
