    battery meter problem on Mandrake


    I'm using a Toshiba A30 laptop, running Mandrake 10.0. I'm using Gnome 2.4. Something is wrong with the battery meter that I added to the top panel. It ALWAYS shows it as plugged in to AC, and that the battery does not exist. This is while I'm sitting in a chair typing this, while obviously not plugged into AC, and there obviously is a battery here. I have installed ACPI and ACPID. I installed Mandrake 10.0 this morning; I was before running Fedora RC2, on Gnome, and the battery meter displayed fine, no problems at all. This is just happening on Mandrake, seemingly.

    Please help, this is a very peculiar problem.

    Thanks!

    kevdude,

    I don't believe I had this problem. Have you tried changing the unplugged icon?

    I couldn't figure out how to change it. I'm in Gnome 2.4

    I'm reformatting, and reinstalling mandrake. I'm going from square 1, there's no reason why it shouldn't work. I've run other distros on my laptop before, and its worked fine.
