When I run upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/DisplayDevice (may be different on different machines, get a list with upower --enumerate), I get output similar to this:

power supply:         yes

  icon-name:          'battery-full-symbolic'

I'm wondering where the icon-names are defined. Is there a list with all possible battery-* icons?

I found http://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-naming-spec/icon-naming-spec-latest.html, but it only lists battery-caution and battery-low.

You can find full list of avaialable values for icon-name in upower source code.


  • ac-adapter-symbolic
  • battery-missing-symbolic
  • battery-empty-symbolic
  • battery-full-charged-symbolic
  • battery-caution-charging-symbolic
  • battery-caution-symbolic
  • battery-low-charging-symbolic
  • battery-low-symbolic
  • battery-good-charging-symbolic
  • battery-good-symbolic
  • battery-full-charging-symbolic
  • battery-full-symbolic

And XDG Icon Naming Specification is not related to them.
