Klaptop icons ver. 1.0 (final) by Ivica Ico Bukvic. (05/25/2004)

BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

This is the latest release of Klaptop's icons that provide horizontal visualization of the current charge. As such, I believe they work better with smaller taskbars. Furthermore, the icons are less colorful and therefore should blend more easily with a variety of color styles and themes.

For more info see the two screenshots included with this tarball.

====================================

LICENSE:

These icons are provided under the GPL license. And come with no warranty whatsoever!

====================================

INSTALL:

To install, simply right-click on the klaptop daemon in the kicker and select "preferences." There, you can alter the look of the three default icons by making them point to the newly installed icons. The installation location of these icons is pretty much up to you.

====================================

IMPROVEMENTS:

*Completely redesigned for small laptop panels (see screenshots)
*While on AC there is no battery level (as I believe that there is no need to have one when a simple mouse-over provides a much more verbose info regarding current state of the battery charging)
*While on battery a thin blue horizontal line denotes the current charge

====================================

WISHLIST (bugreports? for the KDE dev-team):
*Klaptop icon on the smallest Kpanel upon its initial appearance is a pixel or two lower than it ought to be. Upon updating the image, this is corrected (obviously it should be centered right away)

*Taskbar has a frame that can be hidden in the advanced options but even if it is hidden whenever mouse hovers over the Taskbar space where there is no icon (or over the part of the icon that is transparent) the taskbar still indents. Furthermore on the smallest Kpanel setting, this taskbar looks rather odd since there is no room for it and the icons.

*Most of the icons on the smallest panel look too large and do not fit properly into the taskbar (see Kopete icon for instance) with their top and bottom pixels being cut-off. This problem persists with both the Kpanel that has a background image and when it doesn't.

====================================

Enjoy!

"While on AC, there is no battery level" - is this an improvement? I would like to see how much battery is charged (when on AC). I think that's what would make sense.

you can, just by holding a mouse over the icon. There is also a built-in option in the klaptop that can audibly notify you when the battery is fully charged, hence I made a choice to remove this aspect as it seemed redundant (most of the laptop users I've interacted with do not plug-in laptop to AC just to charge-up but usually stick around working on AC whenever possible, and even if they do then the best way to find out when the battery is full is not by counting pixels in a taskbar but using audible notification from klaptop daemon.
