Gnome Battery Icon Disappeared

Postby Stavrogin » 2018-01-11 08:19

Hi there,

I've been up half the night googling this problem and haven't found a solution that works. I have Debian 9 installed on an old Macbook pro (7,1). This is a pretty new install (just a few days ago), and everything was working pretty well. The battery icon and time remaining estimates all worked fine. Then tonight, the battery cable was detached and re-attached quite quickly, and the battery icon got "reversed" - it showed running on battery when connected, and charging when disconnected. So I rebooted, and now the battery icon is just gone.

gsettings list-recursively | grep battery yields:
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 1800
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type 'nothing'
org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage true
org.freedesktop.Tracker.Miner.Files index-on-battery true
org.freedesktop.Tracker.Miner.Files index-on-battery-first-time true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 1800
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type 'nothing'

and gsettings list-recursively | grep power gives me:
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-brightness 30
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power power-button-action 'suspend'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power priority 0
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-type 'nothing'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 1800
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type 'nothing'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-timeout 3600
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power ambient-enabled true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power active true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-brightness 30
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power power-button-action 'suspend'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power priority 0
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-type 'nothing'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-timeout 1800
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-battery-type 'nothing'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power sleep-inactive-ac-timeout 3600
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power ambient-enabled true
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power active true

I notice everything is listed twice.

I'd really like to have that battery icon back, but all the advice internet searches give me is for Ubuntu and doesn't seem to work here. Sorry if I'm formatting things wrong, but I'm brand new here. Any ideas?
