I've installed Ubuntu, installed Mate on it, customized placement of panels. Now every time I reboot, the battery indicator icon isn't shown on the panel until I right-click it, choose "Add to Panel..." and select Battery Charge Monitor. This isn't an ideal work-around, because I want the battery indicator icon to be shown always.

The related question doesn't help, because in my version there aren't options about the icon in the General tab of the settings window.

  • I recommend to ask on ubuntu-mate.community . I use battery indicator from MATE Power Manager on my UM 16.04 LTS. – N0rbert Aug 31 '18 at 10:02

Just found this and had a similar problem as a first-time Linux laptop user. In my case, the nature of the disappearance is easily rectified by adjusting the size of the panel up one pixel, and then back down one pixel to what I want. I wish I knew why it was doing that. I wish I didn't have to do that. But it's how I fixed it.
