I was using fluxbox on my notebook, but it missed battery indicator.Is there any battery monitor on fluxbox?


install wmbattery then add it to startup script.


You might consider using conky which is a great lightweight system monitor that can not only monitor your battery state but many, many other functions of your computer.

  • I know about those conky, but I need an indicator that look like widget – Alf May 4 '12 at 7:08

In Manjaro Fluxbox there is a simple battery indicator applet called cbatticon.

I prefer mate-power-manager, which is more complete and looks better.


I dislike the look of slids and don't want to install something as heavy as xfce4-power-manager so I am using xbattbar. It's in the repos and adds a green bar on the top/bottom according to your battery status.


xfce4-power-manager works fine for me

  • How did I not answer the question? I recommended that the asker use xfce4-power-manager in fluxbox. – functionptr Aug 25 '12 at 23:06
  • Well in that case i will delete my comment , but i guess you really needed to clarify if OP tried it or not , then it could have been answer no doubt. You may need to expand your answer how does it works or provide the needed Indicator if provided somehow, thanks. – atenz Aug 26 '12 at 8:52
