A battery indicator I made for GeekTool. If you would like it, it is available on my dropbox: [link]

After requests, I have made variations on it for volume, iTunes and HDD space, all of which are available from my dropbox. There are also links to download them from my dropbox in the comments.

Hope you like it, and let me know what you think! :D

The battery indicator is a gorgeous little geeklet! i've tried several times to get it to work right to the instructions (even deleted & tried with a new download) but when It runs it doesn't seem to work

Here's the error message when running in AppleScript Editor:
error "Can’t make \"MacintoshHD/Users/libby/Documents/CustomisyThings/geektools/HORIZONTAL/Battery/getBattLevel.txt" into type file." number -1700 from "MacintoshHD/Users/libby/Documents/CustomisyThings/geektools/HORIZONTAL/Battery/getBattLevel.txt" to file

Nvm I name of my HD has a space which "broke" the path. I the emplacement of the file and it now works.
Thanks for the job!

I can't understand what I've done wrong but when I run the script in applescript it won't change the image temp.png. It gives me this error:

error "usage: cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-fi | -n] [-apvX] source_file target_file
cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-fi | -n] [-apvX] source_file ... target_directory" number 64

Any idea how to fix it?
Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the double post

No worries, try deleting the whole thing, redownloading and follow the instructions exactly. If you run into problems still, I'll have to see what you changed. Usually people have issues with the path name but that would give a different error.

Newbie here! Result hen running from AppleScript:
error "Can’t make item 1 of {} into type integer." number -1700 from item 1 of {} to integer

Recieving the below result running this from the AppleScriptEditor:
error "Can’t make item 1 of {} into type integer." number -1700 from item 1 of {} to integer

And how would I go about changing them to black?
gotteric's avatar
If you go into the folder containing the images, change each one to black individually. (I know, it's kinda tedious)

What theme are u using, can u share just the white apple logo ?

I actually don't remember and my hard drive died on me since this post so I don't actually have access to the files I used for it. There are definitely resources as far as how to do it though. If I come across anything, I'll post again to let you know.

Nice! Could you make a black coloured version?
gotteric's avatar
It is actually pretty easy to do that yourself. Just go into the folder containing the image files and make them black. The temp file will automatically update to match it.

hey, I'm having a similar problem like a few of the ppl above. The battery bar shows but it doesn't indicate current battery level. i tried running the the script on AppleScript Editor and it says :

"error "Can’t make \"/Users/sHong/Documents/getBattLevel.txt\" into type file." number -1700 from "/Users/sHong/Documents/getBattLevel.txt" to file"

any suggestions would be much appreciated! :love:

I see what should be the problem. The path at the very end (getBattLevel.txt\") shouldn't have that backslash. It should work if you delete that.

Can you make it all in black?
