I'd like to grep some details from samsung-tools on the command line to show them in my system monitor (it's conky, but that doesn't matter for the question).
I try to use grep to read the output from samsung-tools, however, I only get an error.
Here's what I do:
~$ samsung-tools -c status | grep -w 'mode'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/samsung-tools", line 771, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/samsung-tools", line 723, in main
File "/usr/bin/samsung-tools", line 276, in apply
print CPU_TEMPERATURE + " " + self.__temp() + unicode(" °C", "utf8")
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xb0' in position 22: ordinal not in range(128)
What I wanted to do: the command was supposed to print out the 'Fan mode: ...' line. Obviously, it does not.
As I'm just an experienced user but not a code guy, I don't know what the error means. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?
