In the original post I thought I wrote that I did that but maybe I wasn't clear. Anyway, the second icon brings up the xfce4 power manager menu and the "About" popup says it is xfce4-power-manager. The first (left hand) icon does nothing when I click on it with either button. When I hover over it it says "Laptop battery X minutes until charged (X%)" where X are real values.

Both battery symbols are in the Notification Area.

What do other people's output from `ps ax | grep power` look like? Mine looks like this:

 1582 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/lib/upower/upowerd
 1790 ?        Ssl    0:00 xfce4-power-manager --restart --sm-client-id
