Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

The new Battery indicator now depletes from right to left, instead of left to right.

This is HIGHLY confusing.... as most people, from other things (phones etc etc) are used to it depleting from the left.

In fact, this is even more confusing because of the way the eye scans. - I thought that my battery only had a small amount of charge left!

See attached screenshot
