    batterey not present


    Greetings,
    I have a HP Mini 210-2145dx, I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 it. It does not seem to detect the batterey.
    When I mouse over the battery icon, it tells me battery not present. However, when I open Power Statistics - Device Information, it give me all the battery information - wattage, type, ect.

    Regardless, the battery dosn't charge and pulling out the charger cord will kill the netbook.

    My searches online have yielded little results. Does anyone here have any ideas I can try?

    Code:
    apt-cache policy acpi
    to check if acpi is installed.

    Battery info is now in
    Code:
    /sys/class/power_supply/
    I don't run Ubuntu 12.04 or gnome 3. I get battery state through conky instead.

    acpi is installed and battery info is all there, yet Ubuntu still says battery not present. It's very odd, because if I open the power statistics pane, it tells me the battery is installed and charging. I'm at a loss here. It worked back in Ubuntu 9.

    I appreciate your paticence with my newbness.

    Lots of battery bugs in Ubuntu it seems, some of which appear familiar (here and here), It may be worth reporting this as a bug.
