on Ubuntu 11.04 I had the battery-status indicator applet installed. After the upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 Beta I do not want to use the applet any longer. I deinstalled it, but I cannot get rid of the icon in the panel.

How can I delete the icon?


enter image description here

Left one is the "old" one, right icon is the one from gnome-power-manager

Have you restarted the session after deinstalling the indicator? Also look in Startup Applications if it is called here. – Pisu Oct 2 '11 at 20:13
  1. go to dash
  2. type: power
  3. Enter power management and choose "general" tab you'll see the option there.

there isnt this tab in 11.10 - this is the workaround for 11.04 – fossfreedom Oct 2 '11 at 19:24
