You need to have APM or ACPI enabled before this will work. Add the related modules to your /etc/modules file and make sure the service apmd is set to run at boot.

Once you've done that, you just need to add the battery monitor to the panel above the screen, or the one below. Just Right Click, Choose Add to Panel->Battery Charge Monitor.

What must you change to make sure the battery panel recognizes when the AC Power is on or battery power? Mine is stuck on whatever the startup value is, i.e. if I am on battery, it stays battery regardless if I switch to AC.. and vice versa.. Using FC3 and GNOME...
