Pi Top Running Lite (battery display?)

Hi

Is there a way to see the battery charge whilst running raspbian lite on the pi top?

many thanks


Hi

I do not know if it is possible in the lite version, in the full version of Raspbian it works.

I have installed a program from Github and its working great.

There is nothing available for lite at the moment. Installing pt-hub does not work on lite because it requires a configured x-host. What I would do is to start with full Raspbian Stretch, install pt-hub and change it to boot to cli. You can also remove some unwanted packages such as Libre office. If you want to see whats in the full version in addition to the light one, look at github.com/RPi-Distro/pi-gen/tree/dev/stage4
I forgot to add, once you have done what I said just above, you can use pt-battery at the command level to get the battery information.
