    Battery icon Ubuntu 14.04

    Hello,

    I recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 and the battery icon keeps disappearing. It will show up when I plug the charger in, but when I restart my laptop it disappears. If I plug the charger in and then unplug the charger the icon will show up, but when I restart the computer again it will disappear again. I am a first time Ubuntu user and Linux user. I have tried Google and it has led to no solution. Any help would be awesome.

    Thanks

    Go to your Unity launcher bar > System Settings > Power

    There is an option there to choose when the battery icon appears.

    It is currently set for "When battery is present." Should it be set for something else?

    Well you want it visible all the time, so that should do it...

    Mine worked at that point ^_^ A friend recommends trying the following:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge indicator-power
    sudo apt-get install indicator-power
    This may or may not fix your problem, I personally have not tested that as I haven't had this exact issue.

    Warning...this may also remove unity-control-center from your system and may not reinstall it.
