I installed fdpowermon a few minutes ago.  It's not too bad, but it doesn't appear to accurately represent the remaining battery level graphically.

I was wrong.  It just so happened when I installed the package and took the screenshot that my battery level was somewhere within 25% of its capacity.  The app shows the battery level in quarters.  I like it...it's a keeper on my machine.

What's wrong with simply using the battery display functionality that already is in tint2rc?

How to display that "default tint2" battery data?

Re: [SOLVED] Battery icon in tint2

Attempting to solve another unrelated issue I upgraded xfce4-power-manager to 1.4.4 by upgrading to the version available in 'experimental', it seems they have brought back the option for showing a battery icon.

Re: [SOLVED] Battery icon in tint2

^good news. There had been hints that might be in the pipeline.
Little chance of it reaching Jessie though, I guess, unless maybe some day in the backports.

Re: [SOLVED] Battery icon in tint2

I'm happy with the battery monitor provided by tint2.  I'm not sure I'll enable the battery monitor provided by xfce4-power-monitor if it becomes available via the Backports repo.

Not only that but it now also has a backlight slider on the right-click options.

I will have to backport this to Jessie...

Done!

xfce4-power-manager-data (multi-arch)

xfce4-power-manager (64-bit)

xfce4-power-manager (32-bit)

xfce4-power-manager-plugins (64-bit)

xfce4-power-manager-plugins (32-bit)

Install the .deb packages using gdebi or:

sudo dpkg -i <name of .deb>

Install -data first, then power-manager, then -plugins

Re: [SOLVED] Battery icon in tint2

Thanks a lot for this backport.

However, I cannot use it, probably because of some configuration file regarding the theme :

$xfce4-power-manager-settings 
/usr/share/themes/shearwater/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:339: Incapable de localiser le fichier image dans le chemin des pixmaps : « panel-bg-dark.png »

(xfce4-power-manager-settings:2987): xfce4-power-manager-settings-WARNING **: Schema "apps.light-locker" not found. Not configuring Light Locker.

(The first error is "unable to locate file).

Do you have any clue on what path is wrong?

It was solved by restarting my laptop.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it.
sad

I did look into providing an official backport for Debian but I just don't have the time to maintain it properly.

If you don't want to use my unofficial version, you could try mate-power-manager instead.

This will provide an icon but it lacks a few features compared to xfce4-power-manager.

Too bad.

I do not much mind by only seeing percentages (I modified my tintpanel to write both the percentage and the remaining time), but I will look at your backported version, and see how it looks. Thanks.

Edit: spelling

Re: [SOLVED] Battery icon in tint2

On Bunsen's backports:
http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/repoidx.html#jessie-backports
Not HOAS's backports, but probably identical.

Thank you. I installed the three packages, rebooted, and it works. (Somehow a tint restart was not enough.)

A follow-up question: I have the battery percentage and the remaining time written on the tint panel, as well, using

panel_items = LTSBC

But somehow, the volume icon is in between the battery icon and the percentage. Is there any way I can put the two next to each other? Thank you.

Edit ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc (or whichever tint2 configuration file you are using) and change the "systray_sort" line in the "# System Tray" section:

systray_sort = ascending

The stock option is "right2left" (I think); you can also try "descending" wink

Worked like a charm, thank you.
