Out of the box the primary battery status will be displayed in the i3-bar. For some laptops that have multiple batteries, e.g. ThinkPads, you want to have both batteries displayed:
- Stage your i3xrocks configuration files, then open
~/.config/regolith3/i3xrocks/conf.d/80_batteryin your editor of choice.
- Find the line that pertains to the battery blocklet:
# Battery indicator # # Displays total percentage charge left of specified battery. [battery] interval=30 # instance=BAT0
- List all the battery instances running on your machine by running:
ls /sys/class/power_supply/ # AC BAT0 BAT1
- Update the staged config file to have a new blocklet as such:
... # Battery indicator # # Displays total percentage charge left of specified battery. [battery] interval=30 instance=BAT0 [battery] interval=30 instance=BAT1
