[SOLVED] GNOME v3.36.3 laptop battery indicator is missing

Seems to have been knocked out last 24-48 hours. Opening GNOME Tweaks and toggling the battery percentage does nothing towards restoring.

GNOME v3.36.3
Arch Linux 5.6.19.a-1-hardened

Edit: same when testing Arch Linux 5.7.4-arch1-1. Will see what I can resolve with some leg work..

No problems with 3.36.3 here with the stock kernel.

Meh. Thanks for those rapid fire sanity checks @ewaller

After a safety ENABLE then RESTART:

systemctl status upower
● upower.service - Daemon for power management
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/upower.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
     Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2020-06-20 19:56:55 BST; 1s ago
       Docs: man:upowerd(8)
    Process: 5990 ExecStart=/usr/lib/upowerd (code=exited, status=127)
   Main PID: 5990 (code=exited, status=127)

Jun 20 19:56:55 arch-laptop systemd[1]: Failed to start Daemon for power management.

Edit:

This gives details of `shared object file` now missing. Sounds actionable wink

$ /usr/lib/upowerd --verbose

/usr/lib/upowerd: error while loading shared libraries: libimobiledevice-1.0.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Re: [SOLVED] GNOME v3.36.3 laptop battery indicator is missing

Appears I went a little clunky with removal the sync packages for an old iPhone 5S this week.

libimobiledevice was not installed but libimobiledevice-git had been.. yet

pacman -Rsun libimobiledevice-git

could not locate it. Attempted

pacman -Su libimobiledevice

reported a clashing file libimobiledevice-git.. entered "Y" to overwrite. Then to tidy it back up as preferred..

pacman -Rsun libimobiledevice

Restart upower. Check its status. And it's good.

Reboot. Battery indicator restored. Wahoo!
