BatMonitor is a small (physically at least) applet for the ROX-Panel that uses Riemer's apm.py and acpi.py to provide info about your laptop's battery. It was originally a wee "fork" of Baroque I made when I wanted to get it working for my 2.6.0-test8 kernel, and couldn't find any applets that were "just right" for my wee slim top panel.
If you use APM, please give it a spin for a few minutes to test the APM code. ;) I haven't really tested it, and while it /should/ work, my spekling is atroshish and my typing is smoetimes off.
... Heck, I haven't even tried it on a 2.4 ACPI kernel... *coughs* err...
Anyway, you can find it and install instructions at http://rdsarts.com/code/batmon/
