Subject: Battery plugin


I've just compiled xfce4-battery-plugin from cvs.
It does not work with acpi : the battery percentage always shows 0%.

I use a stock 2.4.22-pre8 Linux kernel, which does not require an
acpi patch anymore to work well on my laptop.

The current released version of this plugin works well.

Side note : the "display percentage in tooltip" and "display remaining
time in tooltip" options are inverted in the settings dialog.
