Wrong Battery Charge Level Displayed - How to Fix
#8
Here's a temporary workaround as long as you have gxmessage installed (and tuptime, if you want an accurate uptime between boots). For US weather, enter your own zipcode.

Code:
batt1="$(cat /sys/class/power_supply/ip5xxx-battery/capacity)"
batt2="$(cat /sys/class/power_supply/axp20x-battery/capacity)"
batt3="= $(($batt1 + $batt2))%"
uptime="$(sudo tuptime | awk -F'=' '/System uptime:/ {print substr($2, 1, length($2)-3)}')"
weather="$(curl -s http://rss.accuweather.com/rss/liveweather_rss.asp\?metric\=${METRIC}\&locCode\=20902 \ | sed -n '/Currently:/ s/.*: \(.*\): \([0-9]*\)\([CF]\).*/\2°\3 \1/p')"
s="battery: $batt1% + $batt2% $batt3\n\nuptime: $uptime\n\nweather: $weather"
echo -e $s | gxmessage -file -


And that will produce, via gxmessage:


Code:
battery: 100% + 98% = 198%

uptime: 1d 0h 52m

weather: 64°F Partly Cloudy
