Last week I upgraded to F18 from F17 my Gnome-shell setup using Fedup. Afterwards, I noticed a neet little thing where the battery notification at the top right of the screen now showed the battery life of my wireless mouse as well. However, I then spend the rest of the week distro hopping as I usually do between releases. I ultimately came back to Fedora and proceeded with a fresh install.

Unfortunately, I noticed that the mouse battery indicator is no longer there. I looked into the settings and Googled it but wasn't able to find anything.

Would anybody know how to get that indicator back?

Was this perhaps an extension to the shell, that you might enable at ?

Try it with a NEWLY created user. If it still doesn't work, it might be a bug (might want to make sure it wasn't an extension as BRPocok mentioned). If you think it is a bug, then you should probably file it at

This is an interesting feature... would anyone happen to know if there's such a thing like this for XFCE? That's certainly something I would like to have here.
