    now where are the power graphs and setting for the mouse?

    now where are the power management graphs and setting for the mouse? this is Xfce 4.12.V on Xubuntu 18.04.5 LTS with various 3rd point versions for V in various packages.

    Both are in the settings manager under "keyboard and mouse" and "power manager". Just type settings manager in applications search box and scan through all

    i scanned through settings manager and found only "keyboard" and "power manager". there was no mouse anything in either. do you need screen captures?

    i could not find an applications search box, either. but right-click on the desktop background choosing "Applications" gives me a "Settings Manager" choice.

    Screenshot here. Power manager is just right of the highlighted mouse and touchpad settings.
    I brought this settings window up by clicking the button at the bottom of the whisker menu.
    I don't see any graphs in the power manager settings though - I don't think I ever have.

    Re: now where are the power graphs and setting for the mouse?

    i have Power Manager plugin on my panel. clicking it gives me a dropdown with 2 devices at the top plus 2 other choices. there used to be another device there for the mouse. clicking any device would go to that device in the "Devices" tab of the power manager. there i could show 2 different history graphs and power details it was easy to see the power history of the mouse. it would dance up an down and increase how much it did that when the batteries were about to die. now i can't find that graph. all i see there now are the power details for the 2 remaining devices ("Notebook BAT" and "Display brightness"). i don't remember the exact name for the mouse.

    I'm not on my Xubuntu machine at the moment but I think if you open up the power-manager window you will find on one of the tabs a slide switch to show the panel icon, and if I remember correctly that is what shows the info you're looking for.

    I couldn't find any graphs in the power manager. I did find find package xfce4-battery-plugin which gives me a different battery monitor that I can add to the panel, but still no graphs.
    And I couldn't find any panel plugin for the mouse at all.

    I'm now back on my Xubuntu machine, and though I don't fully understand what exactly you want to see, make sure you have the Notification Area in your panel, and in the Power Manager General tab enable both options bottom right to show Status Notifications and System Tray Icon.

    With a right click on the battery icon shown in green on my screenshot, you will get the notification window shown. Sorry if that's not what you want but as I say I don't really know what it is that you are looking for as I don't think I have ever seen a graph.

    indeed it is. but no history graph. i remember the graph gave me choices like 2 hours, 6 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months. looking at 6 hours or 1 day would easily show me if the battery is ready to die. then i could find time to hunt for another one (it uses just 1 AA).
