I'm looking for an easy way to show free drive space in Qubes R4, since Xfce's widget doesn't handle lvm.

There is lots of advice for checking lvm space that doesn't seem to apply to thin-provisioned volumes, which is what R4 uses. (As a side-note, lvm thin-provisioning doesn't appear to be in wide use.) Some suggestions are to use 'pvs' and 'vgs' commands, for example.

The closest I've got to a real assessment of allocated/free space is 'lvs' which shows a _percentage_ of used space for each of the many logical volumes... but not a total. Reading this doesn't even provide a vague picture of free space because the logical volume sizes are arbitrary (over-provisioned).
