Ive not tried with paroli, but when I compile e17 from svn and I upgrade
the version I've in my Om2008 partition I've to go in Illume-settings ->
Advanced -> Battery Meter -> Advanced -> Hardware -> Internal.
Then it counts correctly.

Well, imho having everything in a settings manager could be useful.

According to the FAQ it isn't.
By the way in my opinion Paroli should allow to be run in two ways:
using its own launcher as an all-in-one/fullscreen application, and
using illume as launcher; In fact the paroli apps can be also launched
using a simple dbus call, but actually they seem to work only if the
launcher is still opened (while launching them with the main Launcher in
background causes Paroli to crash).

However it would be important to keep the dialer/log/contacts/messages
and other main paroli applications always in background to make them
popping-up quckly.

I think that this would be the best way to use the nice paroli telephony
related applications with an illume-based distro.
