    battery monitor not working correctly


    hey, just upgraded to "dapper drake" and the battery monitor isn't working correctly.
    when it's plugged in, it says that battery is at 100%, but when unplugged it's at 1%.

    any ideas?

    Similar problem

    I'm having a similar problem with my HP/Compaq NX9000 notebook, however my battery monitor just shows 0%. Should I install the acpi patch or similar?

    yes, definitely. you'll probably need the acpi and acpid packages. if that doesn't work then you need the apm packages

    Still no luck - I installed both the acpi and acpid packages off the CDs, but it still says 0%. Is there anything else I can do?

    hmm, interesting. you might need to recomple the kernel for acpi. sorry i can't tell you how to do it. there is probably a thread somewhere's around here that will tell you how. you might want to check out these threads:
