This seems something that could be integrated into ~noneofyourbusiness 's new low battery daemon? https://lists.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-devel/patches/23345

Interesting - but sounds like it's more or less doing what cron+rtcwake is planned to do

while sxmo did eventually switch to upower, it is important to note that upower does not actually handle the shutdown on low power itself, but simply places a shutdown request to logind [1]

This means automatic shutdown on low power is not working under sxmo since it is not logind compliant. Assuming this is not planned to be changed in the foreseeable future, maybe sxmo should at least be on the lookout for upower's action state/signal, then initiate the shutdown action manually

copy this: https://codeberg.org/magdesign/sxmop6/src/branch/main/hooks/sxmo_hook_battery.sh to ~/.config/sxmo/hooks/sxmo_hook_battery.sh it will grep the values from UPower.conf file and handles the warnings and shutdown.... i tried for several hours (pmos edge, sway, op6) and it does the job. feel free to test and merge.

be aware that:

  • calling sxmo_power.sh poweroff will not turn off the device (dont know why it hangs)
  • power reporting of UPower might leave out values and jump e.g. from 5% to 2%
