------- PySolar ------- Main purpose of this package is to provide end-user with charge data and lightness meter from Logitech Solar Keyboard. Library/application is only tested with Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, but other devices could work as well. For now, package consists of: - DBus service - simple python console client - gnome-shell extension Simple console client --------------------- After installation you can run client with: :: python -m pysolar.client it will output events captured by DBus service :: Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4002 #1: battery level 53%, lightness: - Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4002 #1: battery level 53%, lightness: 51 Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4002 #1: battery level 53%, lightness: 52 Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:4002 #1: battery level 53%, lightness: 52 DBus service ------------ In addition to script for use in */etc/init.d*, there is simple script for starting pysolar service as true daemon. :: # pysolar-dbus -h usage: pysolar-dbus [-h] [--pid-file PID_FILE] [--background] Run PySolar service optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --pid-file PID_FILE, -p PID_FILE Pid file to use --background, -b Run service in background To simply run from console, without daemon tools: :: python -m pysolar.dbus_service Daemon events: - ChargeEvent(dj_path, device_num, charge) - LightnessEvent(dj_path, device_num, charge, lightness) - DevicesChangedEvent() - happens when logitech device is removed or added to the system Daemon methods: - ListDevices() - returns list of found devices as (name[string], dj_path[string], device_num[uint]) You can event start only "core" module, that is one responsible for reading events from USB devices. Useful for debugging, if you ever needed one. :: python -m pysolar.solar If you get error similar to *dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Connection ":1.55" is not allowed to own the service "pl.glorpen.PySolar" due to security policies in the configuration file*, you should: - check if **/etc/dbus-1/system.d/pl.glorpen.PySolar.conf** exists - restart dbus - start pysolar service as **root** gnome-shell extension --------------------- Named PySolar, connects to DBus service and listen for events. Lists every found solar logitech device, its charge level and lightness if available. GTK Systray Client ------------------ To run: :: python -m pysolar.gtk_systray Client will simply present systray animated icon with first device battery value. In its tooltip are listed all found devices.
