I am using XDMCP (via VcXsrv with Win7) on my Xubuntu 14.04 machine and noticed that the battery indicator vanished since last week or so. The reason seems to be a crashing xfce4-power-manager (--version says ... for Xfce 1.2.0).

I restarted it with --debug and the following lines are always the last before it crashes again, (don't know exactly what that means):

TRACE[xfpm-backlight.c:104] xfpm_backlight_dim_brightness(): Current brightness level before dimming : 100, new 80
Error executing command as another user: Not authorized

This incident has been reported.
The program 'xfce4-power-manager' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 722 error_code 8 request_code 133 minor_code 8)

Dirk, please retest with Xubuntu 16.04, or better with 18.04.

If the bug remains, please open a new report.

Closing this old report.
