View Full Version : [gnome] old battstat applet

September 9th, 2010, 04:08 AM
I really don't like the new indicator-applet (inconsistent, unconfigurable, steals my <super>m maximize-window shortcut), so I removed it from the panel. I don't use evolution, I got the empathy notification to show up in the tray, and got the sound applet to show up, but I haven't yet figured out how to get the old battery monitor onto the panel. I have the gnome-panel-applets package installed, which claims to have the battstat applet, but I don't see it anywhere.

Also, I know there are alternatives out there in third party repositories, but this is a work computer so I can't add any repositories. Is it possible to get a battery monitor on the panel using only the standard repositories?
