No Battery Status Icon in Gnome Shell 2.3.1? Try This Extension

6:54 PM

While everything works on my Toshiba L755D-S5204 laptop, the one thing that doesn't work is the battery status icon. While there's still a space there for the icon, and clicking on that space will bring up the battery status menu, there's not actually a battery status icon visible anywhere that can tell me what the state of my battery is.

I've posted about this problem in the Sabayon forums, but unfortunately there has been no response. I don't know if this problem can be replicated in other Gnome 3.2.1 distributions. 

I have however found a temporary fix for this problem in the extension Battery Percentage Indicator. It places a battery percentage right next to where the battery status icon should go.
