no battery applet in icewm

So yeah, I have a compaq presario 700 laptop with acpi and acpid and icewm, etc. But I don't have a battery applet showing up on the taskbar. How can I get this? I searched around here and on the web to no avail (most of the time, it just "shows up" for others with laptops).

The battery applet works well in gnome.

when it shows up on laptops, do you mean with debian or with other distributions?

@ haimeltjnfg

I mean with debian. I haven't tried other distributions on this laptop, and probably won't for a long time.

@ macondo

It doesn't seem to be disabled in there: the only pertinent information in that file seems to be about being able to ignore multiple batteries, and anyway, that's all commented out.

Also, /proc/acpi/battery contains my battery, and I don't have apm. Any ideas?
