Ubuntu (11.04-12.04) Battery Indicator Problems
The problem is that in all versions of Ubuntu i have used (11.04-12.04, i currently use 12.04 LTS) i have had a constant dilemma with my battery indicator. First off, when i start up ubuntu the indicator isn't present at the Greeter. After i have logged on (AC adapter or not) the battery indicator still isn't present UNTIL, for some reason, i click the on/off button for my touch pad, then it shows up. I have tried every solution on every forum and help site i can think of, but no one has this particular problem so none of the usual solutions for common battery problems work for me. Any solutions/ideas are welcome! Thanks for reading.
PS. i have tried submitting a bug, but it's just too confusing for me (whatever the reason).

Check if acpid is properly running.
