No battery status icon on the top panel in Gnome Shell

Posted on In QA


The battery icon in Gnome 3 Gnome-shell is missing. How can I fix it?


The system-monitor extension ( ) has a option to enable/disable the battery icon.

This extension also shows the CPU/memory/network status which I miss as in Gnome 2. Great extension!

The upower service may fail to start if an iPhone is connected to the laptop, which cause the battery icon in Gnome-shell disappear.

Simply removing the iPhone before booting the Linux may make upower start successfully.
