New LXQT install - no battery indicator
« on: July 21, 2016, 09:11:41 pm »
Hi all!

I have been running Sparky on my laptop and I really like it.
I only miss a battery indicator in the LQXT installation.

Is there a way to add one to the system tray?

Regards,

Archie.

Hi.

Some distros did not offer battery-plugin indicator in panel,so you need to add it by your self.I am not very sure about LXQT but in XFCE ( that i'm using), you can install it by Synaptic, xfce4-goodies or xfce4-battery-plugin. Also you can find in internet as xfce4-battery-plugin.deb

try freenode #lxde on irc.  That is where the LXQT hang out.  OFTC #lxde is LXDE.  They are still working on getting to 1.0 version, but if you are commited to QT5 instead of gnome, it is a much smoother ride with LXQT than KDE presently.  Bug tracker is at  https://github.com/LXDE/lxqt/issues.  I wish you luck.
