hello fellows,

my question is easy and surely appeared here before - is there any way in ubuntu to see the battery usage/discharge breakdown among the applications running?
I mean having accumulated counters like theese:

"consumption since poweron
1. chrome browser : 10 000 mWh
2. libreoffice writer: 1000 mWh
3. wifi networking 500mWh
and so on?

Android devices do things like this (not exactly like this, but in this direction) is there something for ubuntu?

bump...

sorry for the bump, but is there anybody who actually might know the answer?

or is it a firm "NO"?

I am not aware of a program that would break down the power consumption by mWh and application, but powertop is able to show you the applications that cause the most power consumption.
