Hi. Just installed Xubuntu 12.10, wich is packed with Xfce 4.10.
Is there a way to make the battery applet show the battery percentage or/and the time? Don't like to keep scrolling the mouse over to seen how much battery is left.

Thanks

Install xfce4-battery-plugin and add the new battery item to your panel.

Thank you. You helped a lot.

Is it wise to uninstall ''xfce4-power-manager''?

I wouldn't... I think the power-manager actually contains the options that regulate power usage... The battery indicators are just applets that show how much juice you've got.

My understanding of this is, of course, extremely fallible!
