Battery status and icon missing

Hello, I am new to Linux.
Today, I recently installed Manjaro (Gnome environment) on Chuwi CoreBook X (laptop), and I noticed that the battery status (icon, percentage) is not displayed on the top bar (doing nothing, no command, no install apps).

Looking for a solution, I found this page:

Next, I executed:

upower -e

output: /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/DisplayDevice
(missing the BAT and line power ACAD files)

After, I executed:

acpi -i 


acpi -b

output: No support for device type: power_supply

Some system info:

Inxi -m

I think this is the most important information I can provide for now. I hope this is enough

Hi @Betoniix, and welcome!

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Hope you manage!

What is the output?

ls -al /sys/class/power_supply/

Thanks for watching and try to help :slight_smile:

It looks like Linux Kernel does not support your battery sensor.

Try to use different minor versions of Linux Kernel

I installed 2 different versions of Kernel:

  • Linux 5.4.188
  • Linux 4.14.275
    None work, always displays the same output. Also on Windows 10 I installed VmWare and tried different distros (Fedora, 35, Ubuntu 22), and found that in none does it show battery status, neither does BAT file (Power ACAD file is there).

I have the same problem :smiling_face_with_tear:
