[SOLVED] no battery icon on tint2 panel in bl32 live mode

There is no battery icon on tint2 panel in bl32 live mode. Would it be there if it is installed?

No, but you can install a backported version of xfce4-power-manager that will provide an icon:

Have to install xfce4-panel, but then Tint2 panel won't be needed, as xfce4-panel would do the panel work.

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of xfce4-power-manager-plugins:
xfce4-power-manager-plugins depends on xfce4-panel (>= 4.9.2); however:
  Package xfce4-panel is not installed.
xfce4-power-manager-plugins depends on xfce4-panel (<< 4.11); however:
  Package xfce4-panel is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package xfce4-power-manager-plugins (--install):

That's strange, I thought xfce4-panel was already included (it is in #!)...

You can install it anyway -- it will only be started if you put it in ~/.config/openbox/autostart

EDIT: Right, it looks like I will have to backport xfce4-panel as well.

I'll get back to you on this.

It's in the Bunsen netinstall-script installation too, but I left it out of the ISO for now. However, your backports are working for me using the version of xfce4-panel in jessie. Please test by first running...

sudo apt-get install xfce4-panel --no-install-recommends

... and then install the backports.

OK, thanks.
Only, we'd have 2 panels, tint2 & xfce4.

Two installed, you'd only have to use one. By all means, use xfce4-panel (it's what I do, the "Display>Mode: Deskbar" option is awesome). Removal of tint2 is up to you. You could also just use fdpowermon as your tint2 applet instead...

Re: [SOLVED] no battery icon on tint2 panel in bl32 live mode

I just tested with the live ISO, and after installing xfce4-panel from jessie the backports install via dpkg without errors. Assuming you have no other DEB files in your downloads folder...

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

@HoaS, I'll ask the team if we should include your backports in the next ISO release. If there are more questions/comments about the applet, I suggest we open a new thread for that.

Perhaps?

Be warned that this will install xfce4-panel unless you remove my backports first.

I think fdpowermon will install cleanly if you remove my backports first.

It will just install xfce4-panel -- the OP @slchan is getting that message because of my backports.

Re: [SOLVED] no battery icon on tint2 panel in bl32 live mode

Shouldn't be, in a LIve session you're backport is installed and running in tint2 and fdpowermon installs with no errors. New thread to continue this, please.

Yes but in your system you have already installed xfce4-panel.

Because `dpkg` is used to install the .debs, APT is still trying to complete the action and `apt-get` cannot install anything else until that is resolved.

If the OP @slchan removes the backports then fdpowermon will install cleanly.

Probably best to ask a mod to split this off into it's own thread.

EDIT: Not the OP...

@slchan:  Tint2 has text-based battery status.  Read this post to learn how to enable it.  Read the post after that for some gotchas.

Thanks. smile
Not complaining, but it should've been turned on from the begining, meaning this letter B. The battery icon or text is much needed, when a guy is using an old laptop. No one is using desktops anymore.

Where I live, no shop is selling desktops. If you want one, either you'd have to find a guy, who can put one together or learn how to make one. No one even advertises that they can. Parts too are not available. You can buy a laptop at most supermarkets, usually i3, sometimes Pentium/Celeron.   

By the way, my first was Atari smile
