Bug#526776: kde-minimal: Battery widget should have an option to permantely display the percentage

Package: kde-minimal
Version: 5:50
Severity: wishlist


I've got a bug report from a usability perspective.  On my laptop I have setup the KDE 4 battery widget/plasma thing to sit in the systemtray area.

That's great and all, and the visual depiction of the battery level is nice.

What I've noticed myself and others doing is running the mouse cursor over the icon to find out the current perspective.  Some, if not most people, seem to want the exactly percentage information on the battery at all times.

There really needs to be an option so that the percentage of the battery is displayed at all times rather than when it's directly interacted with.
