What's Lxde's power applet?

I wanted to try out the LXDE desktop a bit, so I installed it on my existing Fedora 17 installation. LXDE runs just fine except for a little problem: I don't have a power manager applet in the panel, but I need one since this is a mobile device.

I wanted to install xfce4-power-manager but it requires some packages I don't use. gnome-power-manager is already installed but I can't add it to the panel. So... What to do?

What's the default power manager shipped with the Lxde spin? I couldn't find any information about that on the web.

Regards, Ctwx

Try Batti

Batti is a simple battery monitor applet for the system tray, similar to batterymon. Unlike the latter batti uses UPower, and if that is missing DeviceKit.Power, for it's power information.

How to install and activate Batti?


yum -y install batti

echo "@batti" >> /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

exec /usr/bin/batti
