Laptop is same, it used to show power in Fedora 31, in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS no such luck.

Which way do I look into?

Re: Sensors plugin don't show battery power

Source code: https://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce … ude/acpi.h

Looks like it uses acpi and looks specifically at /sys/class/power_supply/XX/power_now (where "XX" is the internal name of your battery). Is acpid installed and running and do you have that file and is there any content in it?

If so, does power appear in the sensors properties when ACPI is selected from from the "Sensors Type" dropdown?
