Hi guys, just met puppy and lovely world without my old computer crashing every 10 seconds because of antivirus or such things. Great system.

Anyway, I am sure there were like gazzilion topics around here because of this, but I have problem with battery monitor. I mean, there is battery monitor (you can see it on my picture). The problem is that it only indicates battery state when pressed and I don't see if my battery is low (except checking the status).

Now this should be no big deal, but I had my cable drop out 2 times today and it was really frustrating when computer shuts off by itself.

I managed to install dingo-battery and asapm but it only worked on JWM. On XFCE it just doesn't work (I can only start manually asapm and cant put it on tray). I read people say that XFCE has battery indicator installed in package but I am not able to find it. I read on XFCE there is xfce4-battery-plugin, but I have no clue how to install it. Any help with this or some other program on XFCE. I would hate to go back on JWM cause this is more convinient for me.

Thanks in advance.

For which puppy version? If for lucid I guess you could try installing this deb:
http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/i386/xfce4-battery-plugin/download

Where are you from btw? Smile

Aha! So I'm not the only one with this problem.
Only, I'm using Openbox that comes with Lucid 525.
But the battery icon behaviour is the same.
Which means there's a small glitch in the Matrix and I just hope someone could try to investigate it.
Thanks in advance.
Cheers
