Thanks for all the suggestions. Below is an update of where I am at with 
setting up the LXDE.

I think this is the problem: the LXDE battery monitor uses ACPI, which isn't 
monitoring the Yeeloong battery for some reason. APM does however. Hardinfo, 
which was automatically installed with LXDE, does monitor the battery. 
Additionally, I have installed xapm and xbattbar, which use APM, as well. I 
wasn't able to find any charge_now file on my system to check the battery 
status using the cat command, however.

I decided on using pmount for now, which works well for usb devices. Usbmount 
has allowed me to find devices from the card reader, but I don't like how it 
labels usb devices. I may try vfu, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

wicd is working very well. I had to get it from Debian backports, which was a 
little confusing at first! I imagine it will become part of the gnewsense 
repository down the line.
