Bug Description

There seem to be a couple of bug reports from 4 - 5 years ago, complaining the same thing. Looks like the bug is back in 16.10.


>1) The release of Ubuntu you are using, via 'lsb_release -rd' or System -> About Ubuntu

16.10 (yakkety)

>2) The version of the package you are using, via 'apt-cache policy pkgname' or by checking in Software Center

Installed: 12.10.6+16.10.20160708-0ubuntu1
Candidate: 12.10.6+16.10.20160708-0ubuntu1

>3) What you expected to happen

The indicator should say the remaining time to be fully charged, and display an icon of either a charging battery, or a "power plug" (In case the battery is fully charged, and the machine is running on direct power.).

>4) What happened instead

The indicator just says "estimating". It doesn't display whether it is being charged, or running on direct power.

The machine having this issue is an "ASUS X555LI" machine, if it helps.
