Also, the 2194 question is from the 10.04-era (pre-Unity, no?) whereas the OP asks about the 12.04 ("latest version"). I agree with him---it's easier to configure Win XP wrt visual performance vs. appearance.

comment How can I make my Ubuntu 12.04 auto-shutdown when battery is fully charged?
This script looks reasonable to me. Note that the script will need to be run as root, e.g. sudo python ./battery.py (assuming the script is called battery.py and is located in the current dir).

Is your goal to fully charge your device while minimizing electrical usage without having to check battery status regularly?
