 Does not compile with Qt 4.5

A small note: It does not compile with Qt 4.5. You'll need at least Qt 4.6 to compile.

Releases for trunk don't help the average user at all. So please consider to have a version for current stable, too.

Thank you for testing. I added a version based on the source from 4.3. Hope this works.

 Compiles on 4.3.4

After renaming battery-oxygen.svgz to battery.svgz it compiled and installed successfully.
Is there any chance to get the remaining time calculated instead of the percentage?
That would be more interesting in my opinion.

The option is there, but you have to edit plasma's config.
see http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdebase/workspace/plasma/generic/applets/battery/battery.cpp?revision=978089&view=markup

More detailed:
- close plasma-desktop
- open ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc in a editor
- search for plugin=battery
you should see something like this:



- If here is no [Configuration] Section create it
- add the line showRemainingTime=true to this Section
- restart plasma-desktop

 Name of plasmoid

 by molecule-eye on: Jul 27 2010

Nice. On a side, I would change the name of the plasmoid since it's not clear what 'Battery NG' means. I found your plasmoid completely by accident.

I'm having trouble compiling this mostly (or entirely!) because I don't know what I'm doing. I've run a cmake on the extracted source folder which created a CMakeFiles folder. Am I on the right track?

If anyone could offer up some help to this Kubuntu user, I'd be very grateful.

I'd really like to have access to this improvement over the default battery monitor, but it doesn't want to build on KDE 4.6.4. Here's the output from "make" (cmake completes with no errors): http://pastebin.com/M1u5RED5
Any plans on updating this to work on the current version of KDE?

I'm very short in time for at least the next month, so I cannot port the code to 4.6/4.7. But if someone wants to do it, I can upload it here.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
