I intend to use the battery symbol from the system preference extension and tried to switch of the original battery indicator but with no success. I tried the extension auto-hide battery and the "sudo apt-get remove indicator-power" command (which responses that indicator-power is not installed). In the system preference I marked "Hide system icon" under battery tab - also with no change after rebooting.
Q: how to get rid of the build-in battery icon in the task bar to use another one and no double icons for battery?
somehow, after going to local extension manager and switching it off and on there, the orinial build-in battery indicator disappeared finally. Don't know why that doesn't work before - but this question is closed for now.
I would guess that the CPU power manager would be involved, since Power Related notifications will include battery on a notebook computer.
I do not use Gnome, so am not well versed with Gnome Shell Extensions.
But if those are the only enabled extensions, process of elimination suggests...
You might disable the two bottom extensions and test for a while. Then enable the Notifications reloaded - and test for a while.
If no battery Icon appears (other than your preferred one), then it should narrow it down to the remaining extension.
If you are not concerned about battery death while unplugged, why not just disable the battery notification?
I do not use Gnome, so I am not sure if that means other notifications would be turned off too...
not sure about the notification @Aravisian - it's not the notification but the icon and I would like to use the battery icon, which is provided by system monitor extension only and not both at the same time...
I am sorry, I had forgotten that you were replacing the current notification for battery with a preferred one.
I think one who understands Gnome Usage needs to step in.
I tried looking this up but got nowhere.
I finally found a solution to the problem, only one single man on earth had have ever before After hours of searching, I came across an extension which finally had an switch for that battery tray icon:
