Missing battery status


Sometimes in my status bar, brightness icon which shows all infos about battery etc, doesnt show it.
It says : no batteries available

what to do or how to fix that ? :slight_smile:

What does inxi -B return?

❯ inxi -B
ID-1: BAT0 charge: 76.5 Wh (100.0%) condition: 76.5/75.0 Wh (102.0%)

So not an odd name.


mv ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc.old

And reboot.

Thanks, that worked, at least battery status is back.
but my whole taskbar is now 3 times bigger and i lost mine xD

thanks, will keep it in the mind if it disappear again

If you mv the .old file back it will fix your bars (but break the battery).

Also found this on Manjaro:

Add sleep 30 in Exec parameter in /etc/xdg/autostart/powerdevil.desktop file as suggested here:

Exec=sleep 30 && /usr/lib/org_kde_powerdevil

I had same bug in plasma. Even on Debian 11. I don’t think it was Arch/Endeavour related

A reboot fixed the issue from time to time.

I couldn’t figure out what it was.
