This script is intended to simplify assigning
laptop-specific keys and events to actions and display
graphical messages in Openbox window manager.
This way one can, for instance, change volume level or screen brightness,
or switch primary / secondary display and see a graphical confirmation
by just binding a key to a single command.
Furthermore - assigning a command in Tint2
preferences allows to see alerts concerning the AC and
battery state, and also suspend on critical battery level.
New in 0.2.1 version
Optional use of the light-git (AUR) package. Listed as an optional dependency. Install if brightness keys don't work for you (e.g. with Radeon graphics). See Wiki (scroll to the very bottom) for more info.
New in 0.1.9 version
Timer/Stopwatch icon. Please check "Show icons" checkbox in the relevant Tint2 executor.

been added, running
obhud --autoconfig tint2 will do the job.
New in 0.1.8 version
Timer/Stopwatch added. Please run
obhud --autoconfig tint2 to add the executor.

Sound added to the battery low notification. Launch
obhuh --autoconfig tint2 or just
obhud --battery low with
obhud --battery LOW in Tint2 / Battery alert, to hear
sound before the notification and suspending the system.
Arch Linux: search the obhud package in AUR.
obhud in terminal to access the menu, which allows to add
default keybindings to
rc.xml and commands to
automatically. You'll also find syntax of each command here.
Alternatively you can use the
obhud --autoconfig all command.
I did my best to test the script and make sure it's safe. However, the
options make changes to essential system configuration files. Making backups of
~/.config/tint2/tint2rc files is recommendable.
