New LXQT install - no battery indicator

Hi all!

I have been running Sparky on my laptop and I really like it.
I only miss a battery indicator in the LQXT installation.

Is there a way to add one to the system tray?





Some distros did not offer battery-plugin indicator in panel,so you need to add it by your self.I am not very sure about LXQT but in XFCE ( that i'm using), you can install it by Synaptic, xfce4-goodies or xfce4-battery-plugin. Also you can find in internet as xfce4-battery-plugin.deb


try freenode #lxde on irc.  That is where the LXQT hang out.  OFTC #lxde is LXDE.  They are still working on getting to 1.0 version, but if you are commited to QT5 instead of gnome, it is a much smoother ride with LXQT than KDE presently.  Bug tracker is at  I wish you luck. 
Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.


Hi...i am a new user here. I have seen a device that you plug it in electric outlet, then router ethernet cable to that plug, next then to any/many socket outlet in your home you plug the other of pair/sets, and short ethernet cable to computer.

Fdpowermon is a good tray applet.  There are several "docker" applets for battery that I know work with the Openbox Window Manager.  See  There is an interesting battery indicator that rides along the edge of your screen.  I think it was called xbattbar
If you use fbpanel, you can use a genmon plugin.  See
