    Exclamation Missing Battery Icon Under Gnome 3 Environment

    Hello OpenSuse forums,

    It seems like any version of Linux that I install on my laptop whether being environment under Gnome, Unity, KDE. LXDE. But I finally decided to use Gnome for my laptop.
    I just can't see or figure out how to activate the battery icon in the top menu bar. Here are some of my specs.

    • Toshiba L645D-S4040
    • 64 Bits OpenSuse
    • 8gb Ram
    • AMD Radeon HD 4250
    • AMD Athlon X2 64 Bits

    If you guys could help me out I would greatly appreciate it. This is my first time installing on a laptop.

    Hi, welcome

    By default the battery extension should be there. Looking at your specs, I wonder if it may not work with the open source driver. Did you install the AMD/ATI driver?

    Hello,
    Thank you for the fast reply! I have an open source driver. How do I get the drivers for it?
