Hello,

I recently got a new laptop, a Macbook Pro 15inch from Mid 2014. I made a fresh Gentoo install (following the Gentoo Handbook and the various Macbook resources in the wiki and the internet), and now I find certain things that I cannot make work properly. One of them is the battery status. I cannot get a battery status icon in Gnome 3, and I cannot get the battery status through command line either. I wonder if someone would be able to point me to the correct direction to make it work.

Thank you very much in advance.

Apparently it's a known problem. The following discussion:

might help.

Thank you for the link, I will read it in depth tonight. However, it might be a different issue, since the poster reports that he can get the battery status when he turns on the computer with the AC cable plugged, and I cannot get the battery status not even in that case.
