Gnome 3 battery icon not updating

Review The biggest development in Fedora 20 (aka Heisenbug), which recently hit beta, isn’t something unique to Fedora at all. Fedora's live desktop CD has long served up GNOME by default, but Ubuntu is moving to Unity, Open SUSE has focused more on KDE and Mint is forging its own path with Cinnamon 2.0.All of which means Fedora is not just a showcase for GNOME 3.0, but one of the last major distros pushing GNOME from the default live CD.If you're a fan of GNOME 3.0, then Fedora 20, with the upgrade to GNOME 3.10, will be a welcome update.Much by way of change in this beta of Fedora 20 – which hits general availability on 13 December – is primarily incremental improvement.But GNOME 3.10 brings quite a few new features and apps, a significant visual refresh and one controversial change to the desktop.Upon installing Fedora 20, the first thing you're likely to notice about GNOME is the new look for the windows in this release.GNOME 3.10 features what the GNOME developers call the "Header Bar", which collapses a window's title bar and toolbar into a single element, saving a bit of vertical screen real estate and giving GNOME windows a slightly less cluttered look.The other, more controversial change in GNOME 3.10 is the disappearance of the minimise button.

The new and improved Nautilus looks much nicer and is less cluttered, which makes it feel more GNOME 3.0-like.Perhaps the best visual tweak in GNOME 3.10 is the new system menu that, like so much of the GNOME interface, is designed to be clean and simple, staying out of your way until you need it.Unlike so much of the rest of GNOME 3.x, though, the new system menu actually succeeds in being simple and powerful.Most of the old GNOME Shell indicators and applets you'd likely want – things like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Volume, Battery, Brightness and such – have been condensed into a single drop-down menu that's hidden away until you click the system menu icon in the upper right corner.
