It can be mapped so you press that and another button for various functions, volume control, monitor on and off, safe shutdown, WiFi and bluetooth on or off. It can be skipped and mapped to an existing gpio button so you'd press L plus the buttons for the fiction instead of function plus the buttons for the function.

Yeah. You can use the function button for hotkeys built into the mintybatterymonitor script or the minty combo script.

You can use that button. Or you can map the function key to another button if you don't want that extra one.

is it correct, the scriopt only works with GPIO controller wiring? So what to do to get the script running in combination with Arduino based controller pcb?

The combo script only works with gpio because the script looks for gpio button presses. You can use the battery monitor with an Arduino however.
