Why I cannot see the battery status of my Logitech Mouse?

With the release of KDE 4.11 I saw this nice picture showing that the battery applet supports Logitech hardware (at least mouse) battery status.

In my case it does not work and upower does not see it either.

Code: Select all
$ upower -e
/org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/line_power_ADP0
/org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0


I looked around and I found a utility called Solaar which recognizes my Unifying receiver with a M310 mouse and a K520 keyboard connected on it. It even shows their battery status.

Can anyone help to troubleshoot this? I would like to have everything integrated in the battery applet.

My system specs:
Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition with Kubuntu 13.04 installed from scratch and updated to KDE 4.11 using kubuntu backports repository.
Solaar was also installed from a repository.

I can confirm your experience, my Logitech keyboard battery shows in Solaar but not in the battery plasmoid

I wonder if this is a upower issue as it does not show when running upower -e

Logitech awareness is recent to upower, supposedly added in 0.9.19, maybe a newer version is required


OpenSuse 13.2 x64, KDE 4.14.x & Plasma 5.x

KDE is only able to show the information made available to it by UPower - so you probably do need to upgrade to a more recent version of UPower to get this functionality.
