    Precise 12.04 Battery Indicator

    I have updated to Precise 12.04 and am using Gnome and cannot get the battery level indicator to show in the panel. Using System Tools > System Settings > Power allows me to select "show battery status in the menu bar" from the drop down, but the setting I select will not stick. It's quite difficult with a laptop and no obvious battery indicator - how do I get my selection to stick, please?

    Regards,

    Bob

    When you change the selection to show did you log out or restart of restart the gnome shell. I have found that when something doesn't work, reloading the gnome shell makes it work. ALT + F2, type r as the command and run.

    Yes - several times, but it doesn't make any difference. If you try to make a selection, close the program and immediately re-open it, the selected item has already disappeared, so re-starting won't save the change anyway. It's obviously something to do with Gnome (it works fine in Unity) but I've no idea how to fix it - if indeed it can be fixed.

    Ok, fair enough. Which version of gnome shell?

    Gnome 3.4.1. I've tried logging in and out and changing from "Gnome Classic" to "Gnome" and "Gnome Classic (No Effects)" - that makes no difference.

    Do you get anything asking for a crash report?

    It looks like there are multiple bugs reporting to the Debian base about this.

    No crashes in Ubuntu - it just won't stay selected. I haven't seen any problems with Debian, but then they haven't reached Gnome 3 yet.

    I have encountered this same problem. This was on an upgrade from 11.10. Maybe it does not occur with a fresh install?

    No, I'm having the same problem as well and I did a clean install of 12.04. Same problem as described above.
