Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169177
should obsolete battstat_applet?
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:56:10 EDT
Realistically, if you're running g-p-m, having battstat_applet running is
superfluous. Perhaps we just shouldn't build it?
Yea, we should do something on this front.
At the very minimum we should take away the panel %post snippet away that adds
it to the panel by default.
%post snipplet should be gone now
Personally I think you should keep battstat by default and turn off the g-p-m
tray icon. Longer rationale in
battstat is a plausible UI, the g-p-m tray icon is just "check it out, we can
dump /proc/acpi into a dialog!" more or less.
Adding Bryan to this. We can discuss what to do for FC5 on monday. Handing to
caillon because...well...I don't know, he looks like he wants to work on it.
Bryan, what's your expert opinion here?
Havoc has some good points in the other bug, I can't tell if they've been
addressed or not. I haven't seen the g-p-m thing myself yet since I can't get
my machine to update to rawhide so I only have hearsay and rumors to go off of. ;)
Not sure if this is being addressed, but at minimum we should be showing
whatever battery thing we have by default. Like how batstat made it's way into
the panel somehow. There's no need to regress that part.

g-p-m loads at startup and displays the current device according to quite a few

You can also run g-p-m from the FC4 repo here:
http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnome-power-manager/packages.html if you don't
want rawhide goodness. :-)
We're not going to get changes into fc6 at this point.
Lets pick this up again for Gnome 2.18/FC7
another release goes by...
its finally gone
