FYI, I have a script

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

if [ -S "/tmp/emacs`id -u`/server" ]; then
   emacsclient -n --eval '(battery)'
   echo "Cannot find emacs server socket";
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

that I always use it to get the battery info. I'm using a minimalism
window manager that doesn't have battery widget by default.


On my side, I used to be as independent as possible with the Window
Manager I use. Indeed, I run Emacs in real fullscreen mode doing almost
everything with it (code editing, compilation, debugging, jabber, web,
mail, ...). So, I do not have visibility on the potential battery

Moreover, for this laptop, I really do care about the instantaneous
consumption and this information is not retrieved from sysfs for
now. Only from the /proc/acpi part I do not have. Even with a fresh
3.2.0-rc6 freshly compiled, patched and optimized for my power
consumption needs.


One Emacs to rule them all
