Running Ubuntu laptop without power supply? It’s wise to keep an eye on the battery percentage. And, here’s how to make Ubuntu 22.04 display the info in top-right corner just besides the battery icon.
Method 1: Single command toggle display battery percentage
For those OK with Linux commands, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, paste the command below:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage true
You’ll see the change immediately after hitting Enter to run the command.
And, to hide the percentage again, use command:
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage
Method 2: Use Gnome Control Center -> Power settings
In Ubuntu 22.04, the GNOME Tweaks tool no longer provide the option to toggle display battery percentage. Because, GNOME has merged this option into system settings (aka gnome-control-center).
1.) Firstly, open ‘Settings’ either from the dash or top-right system tray menu.
2.) When it opens, navigate to Power panel in the left. And, finally use the on/off switch in bottom right to toggle display battery percentage:
That’s it. Enjoy!
