I’m a user of the battstat applet and was surprised to find it defunct
in the latest version. I has a look at the gnome-power-manager display,
but found it inferior to the applet:
* At least on my vertical panel, the gnome-power-manager icon was
shorter than the applet, thus provided a less exact view on the battery
* g-p-m puts it in the _notification_ area, although it provides (at
least when permanently on) status information that I would like to place
freely on the panel, next to other status informations. This ways, it is
always at the same position, no matter how many notifications I am
I’d be grateful if the applet could come back.
