The repos only have packages for Natty or older. I don't think you can use it anymore if you are using 12.04 or 12.10 on your laptop.

yes i am using 12.10!!Is it that none of you guys on 12.10 can see the rate at which your battery discharges??Thats really sad!!Could i switch souce to a different server to actually get this??If its a problem with the server from which the source is being updated??

Apparently the application ceased development due to issues with estimations. It was never accurate and glitched out alot for people. There is another Battery Monitor called "powertop" but it's meant for Intel chipsets. it's command prompt driven though.
