Battery charge status not showing in bottom right of task bar

The Battery charge status icon which I have added to the bottom right of the task bar is not showing anything, its just a blank grey vertical rectangular icon so I have no idea what the battery charge status is.

How do I get this working as I got the pitop for its 10hr battery life but have been unable to achieve this so far even with wifi off and the screen brightness set at the mid point?

The battery status widget, which can be enabled on the desktop panel, does not work on the pi-top. For a battery status display on the desktop, see

a battery status indicator would be very helpful.  im not sure how one would build one but it sure would be welcome!

Please look at

Awesome!  Thanks for the tip Rene!
