Description of problem:
The left hand side of the little battery on battery applet is missing
from the applet
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a laptop :)
2. Have an alleged "time remaining" which has hours in double figures
3. Start up Gnome in its default format.
Actual Results: The battery applet looks like this (and I hope the ascii
| -__ |
| | 100 |
| | 41:51|
ie, the lefthand side of the battery is not shown. I think it is
because of the time remaining.
Expected Results: All the battery should be visible.
It's definitely the "time remaining" thing. I pulled the power cord
out when it said "100%" and had no time remaining displayed. As it
dropped down to "99%", the time remaining appeared and the battery
jumped to the side. I put the lead back in, and the time remaining
went away, but the battery didn't jump back into place.
We really need to dump the current battery applet and go with the one at
I put in battstat and removed the .desktop file for the old applet (though it's
still there if you run it from the command line or were already using it).
