Eee PC 901, running the UNR version, dated Feb 24.3

It worked in Alpha 2, seems broken in Alpha 3. I tried re-installing,

"sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-power-manager"


But it did not restore the % of charge left. I don't know if this is a bug, or if someone made the decision to give us less information about the remaining-time available on battery power.

gnome-power-manager is now using an application indicator.

Afaik application indicators doesn't support tooltips (yet) :(

Thank you for that info. I grew so accustomed to that indicator that I'd catch myself looking for it.
